Inside Sport - - COMEBACKS - – An­drew Swen­son, via email

It’s prob­a­bly the wrong time to whinge about the poor free-to-air cov­er­age of sport when The Ashes are en­thralling us on prime time, but I can’t let the fact go that each net­work now has three chan­nels at their dis­posal and yet we can’t see US Open golf or French Open ten­nis or var­i­ous other ma­jor sports events for free. I’m sure we all want to see count­less re­runs of old sit­coms in­stead of high-qual­ity world cham­pi­onship sport! Se­ri­ously, TV ex­ec­u­tives, you are go­ing to make more money from live sport than show­ing Sheldon Cooper com­plain­ing about Penny for three re­hashed episodes a night.

Ku­dos for The Ashes still on free to air. I guar­an­tee it has higher rat­ings than old re-runs!
