BBC Northern Ireland Signs New Four-Year Deal To Broadcast Ulster Pro12 Games
BBC Northern Ireland secured a new four-season deal to provide live coverage of Ulster's matches in the Guinness Pro12. In the league section of the competition, BBC Two NI will broadcast Ulster home and away games which are not being shown live on Sky Sports. The matches that Sky selects will be live on BBC Radio Ulster. BBC NI has also secured live TV coverage of any playoff match involving Ulster -- including finals. Matches being broadcast live on BBC NI Television and radio will also be streamed online with video highlights of all matches also going up on the BBC Sport NI website. Stephen Watson will present the BBC Sport NI's Pro12 TV coverage with Nikki Gregg anchoring Radio Ulster's Pro12 broadcasts. With Jim Neilly in the commentary box, analysis and co-commentary will come from a range of ex-players, including Ryan Constable, Bryn Cunningham, Andy Ward, Tony McWhirter and Maurice Field (BBC).
