Quest win rights for TV high­lights

Western Mail - - SPORT -

CHAM­PI­ONSHIP foot­ball high­lights are set to be shown on low­pro­file TV chan­nel Quest as of next sea­son.

Footage of Cardiff City’s league games are cur­rently aired by Chan­nel 5 at 9pm on Satur­day nights, as has been the case for the last three sea­sons.

But EFL bosses are set to an­nounce that Foot­ball League high­lights will be aired on Quest from the start of the 2018-19 cam­paign as they look to in­crease their view­ing fig­ures which have sig­nif­i­cantly dwin­dled since mov­ing from the pre­vi­ous grave­yard slot af­ter Match of the Day to Chan­nel 5, de­spite the fact the pro­gramme goes live at a prime-time slot.

As far as Cardiff are con­cerned, it would of course de­pend on the Blue­birds fail­ing to se­cure pro­mo­tion into the Premier League, although it will af­fect League Two side New­port County pro­vid­ing that Michael Flynn’s men don’t drop out of the Foot­ball League.

It re­mains un­clear who will present the new pro­gramme as the of­fi­cial an­nounce­ment is yet to be made.

Quest is cur­rently chan­nel 37 on Free­view and it is chan­nel 144 for Sky view­ers.
