Liverpool FC TV channel assure fans in wake of Setanta crisis


THE Liverpool FC television channel could be temporarily taken off air if broadcaster Setanta falls into administration.

Reds bosses today said the channel, which is owned by the club but part of the Setanta package, would not be affected if they went into administration.

Directors of the Irish pay-TV broadcaster are considering a last-ditch rescue package for Setanta who owe the Premier League £30m.

Their backers have refused to advance them any more money.

If Setanta go bust, Lfc.tv could disappear from our screens, but bosses claim only for a short period until a new arrangement is found.

Staff at the Reds channel were set to have an urgent meeting this morning to discuss the likely effect on Lfc.tv, which is based at the Matchworks office complex in Speke.

Anfield bosses are confident any disruption will be minimal as Lfc.tv broadcasts to 80 countries and has a global audience of over 100 million.

They are continuing to make programmes and stress they have daily international and online commitments.

A spokesman for Liverpool FC said: “Lfc.tv is continuing to broadcast as normal on Virgin Media and online.

“We are aware of the rumours circulating about Setanta’s future and we are working to ensure that if anything should change with regard to their stability, Liverpool fans will still be able to access lfc.tv.”

It also emerged yesterday that BSkyB refused a £50m lifeline to Setanta to ease their financial woes.

Setanta’s subscription services for new customers also became unavailable yesterday.

Internet applicants were flashed a message saying: “Oops! Something has gone wrong....”

Setanta’s customer services confirmed to callers that new subscriptions were unavailable due to a “technical problem”.

Setanta had asked Sky for £50m and in return offered access to the live rights to 46 Premier League games next season as an add-on option to Sky Sports.

But Sky’s chief executive Jeremy Darroch said it was “a broadcaster not a bank”, but insisted it had no wish to see Setanta go into administration.

ESPN is favourite to step in and take over Setanta’s Premier League games if it goes into administration.

The Premier League should not be badly affected should Setanta go into administration as they have only won one of the six live broadcast packages for 2010 to 2013.

If it went, it wouldnt be missed too much tbh. Mainly full of crap anyway, you get it free with the eSeason ticket, and theres hardly anything on that's worth watching!!

I do like the fans phone in programmes, especially after the matches, but then TalkSport is much better in all honesty.
