  • That will do for me, I like a bit of Quest. I hope they change the format though, those fans talking into their phones with a view right up their noses pisses me right off. That is why I record it and fast forward the crap bits.
  • They need to change that crap music às well
  • "hosted by Colin Murray who has proved a popular figure"

    has he??

    just hope they stop the pun filled commentary and the woman who explains what happens before we even see the highlights.
  • Shame really. I think Channel 5 have done a great job.
  • who the f**k are Quest ??? I assume they are on SKY, if so, what channel ??? I regularly trawl through a lot of channels & never heard of them. Even Drama is on 158, and they show re-runs of Silent witness & Waking the Dead......Quest must be 200 & something.

    EFL sold their soul............again !

    Many thanks. I have to admit I'm a technophobe & haven't selected any favourite channels on my Sky box - might have to do so now.

    I don't get it. If you want to find EFL games, they're being shown on free to view TV and you can quite easily find it.

    TV has changed. Get over it.

    Believe it or not, not everybody wants to see Yeovil v Colchester live on a Saturday night.

  • Hope they have Caroline Barker back. Mainly because she's a mate of mine and I can hassle her to call Roland c*** on air.

    I don't know if this is aimed at me or not, but surely C5 is free anyway, so immaterial if you can get Quest free-to-view somewhere. Just a pain that its not on "normal" TV but some obscure channel. Might as well show it on Movies for men.

    I dont think those people are randoms... Seem to be vloggers like the lad who does it for Charlton - Guess they upload their videos to YouTube as normal which C5 help themselves to

    Which channels show free to view EFL games?
  • last week i tried to catch highlights of the Charlton v Blackburn game, it cant of been for longer then 30 seconds. what is the point, you get better highlights on sky sports app, hopefully they change it so we can at least get 2 minutes coverage. Maybe if we get promoted will sort that out but still a bit of a joke show, they do have some good guests on though.

    What I've noticed with the Sky Sports app though is that the highlights are always 2 minutes long. It doesn't matter if it was a 0-0 draw or a 8 goal thriller.

    I'm not sure why any broadcaster would pay to show highlights at a set time when Sky show them for free on their website/ app.

    If the EFL were serious about attracting more fans they would take a lower bid and have live games on free to air as Sky hardly bother to show any anyway.
  • Quest have been slowly bringing in more sport, they share the British Superbike races with Eurosport.
    The way I look at it is that it should give clubs like us more airtime.
  • Highlights obviously highly sought after

    If my experience of watching is anything to go by, then it's unlikely to be too much of a money spinner for Channel 5: Always record it, always watch the Charlton highlights, sometimes watch Southend or some other team that I might have a passing interest in. Very rarely watch from start to finish. Always skip the adverts (if I even get that far). For a channel in need of advertising revenues it might be a rather disappointing proposition. For Quest who, judging by the response on here, might think they've done well just by raising their profile it could be a worthwhile venture.

    For the teams in the Championship, you get proper highlights so I imagine fans of those teams would be more likely to watch the whole first hour
