    Anyone know what's going on with the coverage of the game on Saturday? Game is played at 5.30. RLW says coverage at 5.30/viewers choice with the cowboys v storm game. Tigpies game at 7.30. However, Fox guide says Manly v Knights telecast at 9.15 on delay.

    Called Foxtel. They confirmed the time but didn't sound real sure. Anyone from the forum know what the hell is going on? I thought all games on Fox were live.

    512 SPEED Channel at 5:30m or Viewers Choice Red button.

    Thanks HM. You're more on the ball than the bloke I spoke to at Foxtel. He didn't seem to have much of a clue. He'd never heard of the Sea Eagles (or the Knights for that matter).

    He was probably working at a call centre in Reykjavik.

    So, if i go down to the local Castle Hill Tavern where the game is usually on the big screen, what do I ask the publican to do so he can find the right game on the screen? Does he even have access to this 512 SPEED channel? I've never heard of it.

    Just tune it to Ch 502.
    He may have to hit the red button as a Viewer's Choice.

    Viewers choice lacks the ability to broadcast the non televised game in HD.
    However, simulcasting on 512 (Speed HD) resolves that issue for Fox sports HD subscribers.

    Cheers for that HM.

    Fox had to put it on SPEED for the Newcastle Fans to find in the Programming Guide :p

    The replay for the Northern Beaches is showing on the Comedy Channel.
