Do not take my view as an attack. Just a view.
How could free to air tv even contenplate replacing any sitcom broadcasting nightly......and a possible length spanning 1 hour?
I enjoy a game of chess here and there but watching 1 hour2 people looking at a chess board, is simply ridiculous. I can't imagine top GM's even thinking it may be ok?
I want to try and stop this event from taking place.
All I need is everyone that reads this, to please state their own views, I this forum as the first step in the right direction.....
Thank you for your support!
I dont see why chess tv would have to be constant stream of gm games that last for hours. Just few videos of TheBackyardProfessor are more interesting then 90% of the trash on nowdays tv even you could say his games are not on the gm level but still high enough. Mix it with everything interesting/fun about chess which could also include documentaries, interviews and so on and add some top games and it could be a decent tv.
A lot of people seem to think that chess on tv would have to be a live broadcast of a game. Why not think of it in terms of "GOTD" on ICC during major tournaments?
Condense a five hour game into 30 minutes of fast paced action and it just might work...
The thing is that fiber optics and wireless signals are making the space available for small niche market channels. The only question is can they find enough advertising (or a group of channels to join for revenue-sharing ad packages) to pay the bills, because the cable/satellite providers aren't going pay any significant amount for the rights to carry it.
I think I probably should have put more thought into posting this forum.
My views do not seem to be shared, I hadn't put that into the equation.
Any suggestions anyone on how I could possibly make the television executives see it how I do?
The future of "chess TV" is DiY streaming. Right now it's Twitch -- still pretty primitive, just a guy showing himself playing someone else on ICC or something. But there are guys who stream World of Warcraft and other popular action games and seem to make money doing it.
