You were doing so well up to that point. If it's the most boring sport on earth, why is it the most popular? :rolleyes:
It is like marmite you either love it or hate it. For me it has always invoked memories of violence, fighting, gang warfare, post match murder excessive drinking, racism and overcommercialisation and 50 years later it is still the same the only difference being the players are paid more in a week than most people earn in 10 years and managers also fall into that bracket and earn similar amounts of money whether they bring success to the club or not, yes it is popular which unfortunately does not say an awful lot for the society we have created to live in.
I'm not sure the figure of £300k is correct. Graham Norton is reputed to earn £50k per chatshow appearance
There is more than one source of verfying that figure
Eurovision 2018: How much does UK pay to enter? How much does it cost?

Whilst to some extent I agree with your comment, I know it does not take into account the salaries of stars and how could it when they earn £1M+ there is a detailed blog analysis here on the viability of the production

I've been recording them each year since 2016, when I first discovered I could receive the feed on my 80cm dish. I moved house this year and have since had a 90cm dish installed, though it's definitely not aligned as well as the 80cm it replaced, so I do hope I'll be able to pick them up this year.

Since the EBU shelved a Blu-Ray release, I guess its nice to have a copy of them in the best quality possible. The dress rehearsals are also a nice bonus as we have a means of seeing the exact footage that the juries scored on, very interesting when there's a discrepency in votes between the jury and televoters.
Omg that's amazing! Would you mind sharing some of the 2016 & this year's rehearsals (if you get them) with me please? I've always wanted to see the fake voting not from some video in the arena. Also yeah they don't make Blu-Rays which is kinda sad.
Thanks for your reply! :)

Not really quite sure why any of that should determine how boring a sport is tbh.
And if you take out the 'post match murder', which is very rare, you could be describing the 'sport of kings' there really.

I would rather Jeux Sans Frontieres was revived and ESC was confined to the waste bin of history.

That might not be a good idea, EBU would strike the video asap. A google drive link would be nice tho. :)
on youtube for sure....but there are other possibilities ;)

Before anyone starts recording & posting things like this on YT or similar video hosting sites just remember the copyright angle. DONT post such stuff on a public video site - thats the best way of getting the feeds securely encrypted in the future!

Share the feed parameters & satellite by all means but dont get the fun ruined for everyone by doing summat daft......

Absolutely agree with AnalogueSat, a simple Google search of 'Eurovision jury show feed' brings up this very thread. During tests yesterday they switched to a much weaker TP on 7E which they've never used before.

I'm expecting them to soon move all the rehearsal output to the Eurovision Flex network instead of using the same satellite as the main shows.

I completely agree (I tried to search it on google and all that showed up was youtube links for old press center videos, thankfully.) I hope I didn't upset any of you here, my main reason I wrote this post was just to ask if someone would will to share those rehearsals with me through some cloud service. Sorry if I did upset you.
