Wonder if the lack of bbc promotion coverage is affecting us? ironic as iIalways thought making it harder to access on freeview would force the fans down the parc

I'm not sure, but was always of the opinion that Sky's OTT promotion of any sport it showed - including rugby - had a positive effect on crowds. Don't forget that Murdoch owns the Sun and Times titles as well, so those papers would always be bigging up Sky TV, no matter how good, bad or indifferent the product was. (Pretty distasteful and dishonest, but as far as crowds were concerned, I think it helped to build attendances in England at least.)

I can also say that I have far less interest in sports which aren't shown free to air than I used to - such as cricket and golf. I'm not so interested in those that I'd be willing to pay. Others, no doubt, feel like that about rugby.
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

Im pretty sure the removal from free-to-air TV has no effect on stadium attendances in the short term - but does seem have an impact on the sport in the Long term in terms of general public interest. (cricket and golf are prime examples above).

The point about Murdoch’s empire is a good one - I used to work on Sky Sports’ advertising and our whole media plan always included cross overs with the press, talk sport and Sky’s free-to-air channels which help with awareness.
