PGA golf coverage

Very amateurish coverage, do they realise their ads don’t have to stop them recording the live playing, therefore why can’t they replay what was missed during the ads. That doesn’t sound hard, I wish someone could fix this ASAP. So hard to watch

Cricket Coverage

I was already very dissapointed with the lack of cricket coverage from channel 7. Was thinking okay we still get the Big Bash, only to find there are 4 games this weekend and not one is covered. Not even a delayed broadcast. Pathetic channel 7, who is the goose that gave you the broadcast rights and who makes these decisions? Please sack them. Until now I was happy with 7, changed rapidly.

Rain in Sydney

And I quote from "Sam" this morning..."keep your kids home from school if you can..." Sorry, is this official advice from the Sunrise team? What are they doing here? Can they leave it to the adults and the teachers and the school representatives to make informed decisions and informed advice please???? Can you show some intelligence and stop mouthing off with meaningless statements ??

Cricket coverage

I don’t normally do this but am so disappointed with the scant free to air coverage of cricket under the 7 banner that I have to speak out. Cricket coverage is even worse than AFL coverage since 7 and Foxtel became involved and it means that many people such as me are now unable to watch a complete coverage as we can’t afford Foxtel. I’m afraid that my days of viewing 7 are coming to an end. I do realise that this will have no bearing on the situation as the decisions made are obviously financially driven but you should be aware that a great number of people are in the same situation as me and the short term gains currently being enjoyed could well be reversed in time.

Channel 7 golf coverage

Every day the coverage is cut off before the final groups finish.Then we are subject to a repeat of Bondi rescue. Why doesn't programming switch the final coverage to 7 mate for eastern states viewers and remain on 7HD for Perth so us people watching on TV can see the end to the round.
Poor form indeed. Very amateurish

Costs to enter Cash Cow competition

Since NBN has arrived my calls to Cash Cow have increased from $0.55 ea on the land line to $1.39 call costs plus $0.55 SMS costs added on to the call as my Telco says NBN does not handle calls to 19 numbers on the land line and I have to use my mobile. I am assured by my Telco that both these costs are regulated by Ch. 7 At a daily cost for just one call of $1.94 I have had to curtail my calls as my pension will not strech to more than one call a day. Can you please confirm if my Telco is telling me the truth or a furphy. Sincerely, William Nicholls

Wedding

You have the exclusive rights to the Royal wedding
All we get is about 6 commentators talk, talk talk.
Talking about people that have arrived, we don’t get to see any
The ones that we do get to see it would be good if someone told you who they were.
This coverage is a waist of time
I can see Eddie and the others 7 days a week, we want to see the guests arrive.
I think I will turn it off.

Online app doesn’t work properly

Can’t believe that in this day and age you can’t even watch a program on the app without it stopping midway through an ad and then freezing on you, then you have to start all over again. What an absolute waste of my time. If your app doesn’t work properly then don’t bother developing one.

Drought reporting

I have just watched a segment on Weekend sunrise on Trundle Central School & the community. My 'complaint' is why are we not seeing more of the real life issues that drought causes. Please air this segment as part of 7 news...people will relate to this & some will be inspired to help. I know many already are ...Kim Peterson..via facebook...just one example.
I am 82 years old..grew up on a farm in Victoria...saw the struggles of every day life so my heart goes out the families doing it tough right now. PLEASE use this powerful segment to
help the farming community.

Australia Chase

I am involved in the dog show scene, exhibitor, judge and was a breeder. I take exception to the questions asked like...... what breed if dog is a oodle something or other is just blatantly wrong. They are not pure breeds and is not fair to ask a question of a cross bred, they are not pure and they are not accepted as such. You are helping the Puppy Farm Breeders by asking such questions!

My house rules 2018

I have been watching my house rules since it started and I am very disappointed that Monday night July 16 2018 that when it come to the scores that we didn't get to see nore get told the points of the house owners score. They just tallied it up all together how are we to know if channel seven my house rules keeps and picks whom they would like to keep on the program. How can chiara and David be higher than Mel and David then Mel and David win battles of the backyards again and win my house rules in the house battles too. to me it looks like my house rules have already picked there winner Mel and David as they are always the ones that always gets the most help with all the Reno's they have the most contractors helping them all the time but when it comes to other teams they get told they will have to do it them selfs.. All the other teams had to sleep in a tent but when it come to Mel and David to sleep in the tent oow No they didn't have to because of snakes they should have had to sleep in the tent the next week with the other team in separate tent. so to me channel 7 my house rules 2018 you have already picked your winner Mel and David as they are my house rules favourite team.

Telemarketing

To Whom it may concern,
We live in Western Qld and have to sit through at least 1 telemarketing ad every ad break. However this is a rarity as we usually have to stomach 3 or 4 per ad break. We recently went up the East coast and very rarely saw an ad for Kleva Range, or any of the other companies using this telemarketing way of selling their product. I would like to know why we are the only ones cursed with having to sit endlessly through these blasted ads?

Pathetic!

The pathetic and demeaning Full Monty program is as low as 7 has ever gotten. Had this show involved female "stars" shedding their clothes no doubt there would be outrage! This double standards is beyond belief! Even my wife is outraged such a blatant bias of standards is being exploited! Surely free to air television isn't being lowered so such a sleazy standard as this?

Too much commentary

Loving the tennis but do we really need so much commentary. Even when the points are being played..really unnecessary.
Never happened years ago and it was so much better. Quiet please!!!

House rules

Over watching house rules as it repeats itself over and over and over again especially after a commercial not only once but two and three times it’s repeated. Do you think we all have Alzheimer’s not watching this program ever again. 🤬

Watching my house rules last night and several episodes,I am sick and tired of watching the program repeat itself over and over and over again. I’ve seen the program once I don’t need to see it repeat itself especially after a commercial, not once but two and three time. What going on. Do you think we all have Alzheimer’s ? Not watching it any more. 🤬

"BITCH" on My House Rules

Watching My House Rules last night at 7:45pm with my young family and had to watch one of the contestants refer to another contestant as a 'BITCH'. I am absolutely appalled that Channel Seven did not edit this unnecessary comment on a 'family friendly' show. Lost my trust in your editors Channel Seven. You've just lost us as viewing. Shame!

Tennis Coverage

Constant info commercials during matches, spruiking WAFL, AFL, horse racing, MKR, Home and Away,missing live coverage to have a lame scripted, badly acted mush of an interview with celebs who have no doubt got free passes.
Concentrate on live coverage, that is your job as the provider.
The interviews by Courier are getting more personal and cringe worthy with every game, then you bring on Ron Burgandy, really ? Stay classy Channel 7, you have ruined the tennis for me for ever.

Tennis Coverage

Where to start - currently watching Federer vs Berdych. First set over then a ton of ads and coverage returns and we have missed 3 serves!!!
Really not what I'd call LIVE coverage. Can you please get your act together. This is happening all the time now & is disgusting & absolutely frustrating for avid fans. You've been getting away with it for a few years now. Please stop it!
Please can the 'hourglass' side shots - they don't show anything but the ball going backwards & forwards - practically useless
Now Federer is serving and someone is interviewing a jockey!!! So rude!!!
The constant gambling ads really denigrate the sport you are televising. Gambling is a huge social problem and due to absolute greed you are doing your best to normalise it. I only hope that you will see the light very soon or the government is lobbied to step in to stamp out gambling ads.
To be continued....

Tennis coverage

Why do you let the ads run too long? We continually miss the first one two points in a game.

The coverage is bad, some commentary is pointless, the camera work is amateurish.

Learn how to produce good tennis coverage - watch what the BBC does for Wimbledon.

Television coverage

Terrible coverage. Constant switching of channels and trying to cover all tournaments on one channel as was the case today. Don't bid for the tennis if you can't provide proper resources.

I hate to think what a mess you will make of the Commonwealth Games.
