  • Hard News: U: It's about the combos, in reply to simon g,

    Woah. Did not know.

    PRESS RELEASE 12 December 2014

    As at 12.00pm today free-to-air sports channel Sommet Sports will cease transmission.
    Launched 18th July 2013, Sommet Sports has delivered both live and pre-recorded sports on Freeview Channel 14, and Sky Channel 69. Funding initially understood to be available for the channel upon launch had largely never materialised and Sommet has been forced to attempt to deliver a full nationwide broadcast channel on one third of the finance.
    “I am totally gutted at not being able to sustain something that we have long held a fervent desire to deliver to New Zealanders. Sommet was born from a dream to deliver free sports to all kiwis. Sadly this dream is not to be.” says Andrew Reeves, Director of Sommet Sports Ltd. “We have been blown away by the amazing support and consistently growing viewership that we gained in such a short time. We can only thank our loyal fans who have stayed with us until the end.”
    “Being the ‘new kids on the block“, we also struggled to gain a strong foothold with most advertising agencies. This coupled with an acute funding shortage has left us with the sad reality of having to make the difficult call.”
    “I would like to thank OMD, Spark, McDonalds, KFC and Fiat Chrysler group for their support and belief in our vision of delivering ‘Free Sports for Kiwis’ “.

  • Up Front: Adric and the Art of Asking,

    I'm going to be thinking of you so much these next few months Emma. Best hopes for best outcome. I was among those glad to join in the death of Adric (and guess I'll still be referring to it the same). I know the treatment effects aren't easy and hope you have someone hearer to be there for you. I'm looking forward to reading the novel; it will make me think of you more.

  • Up Front: The Song of Angry Women,

    I took this away with for a few days and talked with friends as I'd heard pieces of the story but none so concise as you wrote here Emma. To date my response is exactly to quote TracyMac:

    Times a million to all the above. Mr "it was all consensual when I punched them in the face with no negotiation" shits me to tears.

    All the best with the Adric.

    Lawks, there was no escaping her show in the 70s. But just as with the Beatles, she has a rich vein of cheek that appealed in New Zealand. Predictably you already have my choice but this includes archival footage I think justifies a second appearance
