F$@% Neo Sports
Neo Sports is the worst sports channel to have ever gone on air. Yes, even worse than those good for nothing religious channels.
I am yet to come across a sports channel that is so arrogant about what it’s got on its side: TV rights to all the international cricket being played in India.
Neo had been sharing feed for the ODIs being played in India with DD. Not that it was any good since watching cricket on DD meant listening to commentary that would make a deaf man run for his life. We cricket fans are made of strong ears, so, we tolerate anything for a good day’s game. But the sleuths at DD decided to test our resilience again. This time, they declared the India-SA test series as not an event of national importance.Who gives a damn about an event being of national importance or not? It’s a cricket match for god’s sake, can’t there be a sane head somewhere in Neo Sports that understands that a cricket match that does not reach the desired TV audience is not a good idea?
Sharing or not sharing of feed with DD apart, what stops Neo Sports from cracking a deal with DTH and Cable TV operators? These are the kind words a lady named Amrita Pai at Neo Sports has for us:
“Even though DD is not telecasting it, we have given our feeding to subscribers of Tata Sky services.”
Hello, Amrita auntie, what makes you think that every household in India has a Tata Sky connection?
Sigh…I hate Neo Sports. It’s a sad thing that nothing can be done about it for at least another few years.
