They have at least two camera crews working I can't understand why they didn't run two separate shows.
I can't understand this either, i don't get a lot of things about this venture .
ETV knew the restrictions of broadcasting on Sky, they have broadcast a day show on Sky before, at that time they also broadcast a short night show on Sky until 11pm, so i'm assuming they must have knowledge of revenue derived from the UK, and if broadcasting on Sky greatly effected their revenue derived from the European broadcast, obviously they didn't do a full all night Sky show back then, so it's different this time, but surly they must have had a inkling that their European viewers would be pissed off with the new restriction when broadcasting on Sky ? .
I also don't get the Cellcast involvement in this either, Cellcast surly must have had some idea of the likely call volumes derived from ETV broadcasting on SKY Ch 945 ? .
I honestly think the 2 love birds (Cellcast and ETV) have had a lovers tiff over the broadcast on Sky 945.
I base this mainly on how eager and exited Cellcast were when this venture was first announced, like myself and others have said, Cellcast were greatly hyping this new show, they were constantly tweeting stuff about a exiting new show coming to Sky 945, and stuff about new beginnings etc, then around 3 or 4 days before
it actually launched they suddenly dropped all mention of it, why was this ?, surly it would have been in Cellcasts interest to promote and advertise the show has much as possible, including right up to the launch date and after it launched, but they didn't, they dropped all mention and promotion of the show a few days before it launched .
Lack of calls from the UK, and dissatisfied European viewers could could have contributed to the show finishing, but i also think other things have gone on between Cellcast and ETV that we don't know about that has contributed to the decision to axe the program .
