    Just to add to the above post, Paul Dempsey is also on the ad. There are two other males whom I don’t recognise on the promo. Anyone know who they are?

    Theres a guy called Ashley House who used to work on a shopping channel here and on Real Madrid TV.
    You can add the channel to your Sky box as follows,
    Freguency-12.560
    Polarisation H
    Symbol rate 27.5
    FEC 2/3
    channel-54005

    They are currently running the ad for it constantly, there is nothing on 435 at present

    Ashley House was on the normal version of Fame Academy a couple of years back! Done alright for himself out of that then.

    There doesn’t seem to be a launch time just yet..

    Rhodri Williams may also be apart of Setanta Sports News.

    I guess the launch day will be this Thursday.

    Also Setanta Sports will be showing every Home Nations, England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic Of Ireland, away matches so looks like ITV will only be showing roughly 5 England home matches so what a raw deal for terrestrial tv again

    Yes, it is this Thursday, i was just wondering what time the launch was..

    I’ve put together a Setanta Sports section – although there’s not much on there just yet. http://www.tvnewsroom.site/setanta.

    SSN’s wiki article names Terry Alderton one of its presenters: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Setanta_Sports_News

    I think Terry Alderton was supposed to be doing Setanta Sports News overnight when there is no news

    The studio sounds great, Johnnie has posted on the Setanta Sports News page that its yellow, with many presentation points, and with a newsroom in view aswell. It would be fantastic if the atrium was in view aswell, even though the studio is small, I’m glad theres many presenation points, I wonder if theres a CSO/Newswall.
    I’m glad Alex Hyndman has joined, she was hardly seen on Sky News doing the sport. Shame we don’t know what time it launches, I was thinking sometime in the morning. Not long now anyway!

    PROGRAMME ALERT lol!
    Someone on another forum has said Setanta Sports News launches tonight at midnight. Also, the studio space is the one on the ground floor which Channel 5 used to have, which was quite big IIRC. Also, the Sky channel number has now been taken off the promo, it now only reads the Virgin Media number.

    The Setanta website is still displaying the Sky EPG 435 number, and the promo being played out on the test freq also shows the Sky number.

    What a bizarre time to launch a news channel.

    Theres very little info on Setantas site about it, you would think they would be banging on about it

    Thats true, I cant believe all we’ve seen is a 50 second promo (maybe not even that) and a banner saying "SETANTA SPORTS NEWS LAUNCHES THURSDAY" on the website. We dont even have a time! Its not being well publicised is it! You would think they would be going on about it a lot, with it being a competitor to SSN and all that.

    ha ha – The promo just stopped playing on the test freq, the screen went black for about 30 seconds, then the promo returned.

    Could a channel arse up a launch any better? Lists programs to start at 10 and they start at 9. They have even more onscreen graphics than Sky
