Poll: What do you think of ITV4's TT coverage?

With Whitham, Plater, Parrish and super-slow-motion cameras, you can't deny ITV have put some effort into their TT coverage. What do you think of it? Don't forget to add your comment after the poll  pollcomment

It's the most complete TT coverage I've ever seen. Got to be a good thing for the TT. The proliferation of TV channels has given the large corporations a chance to cover minority sports with a hard core following in much greater detail and this is obviously an experiment for ITV4. Long may it continue. The fact that they have an hour of air time, repeated, every day for the whole TT can only increase the popularity of the TT, leading in itself to more air time. You only have to look at the rise and fall of rugby league to see how important air time is to a sport and increased air time leads to increased participation which hopefully in the long term will lead to more McGuinesses and Crutchlows. Good job.

Could be better

If they are advertising that they have the TT why not do it properly?  Same as the BBC with Moto GP!

I was pretty happy with the programme and the build up was good with an insight to the preperation but why the races had to be shown at 21:00 and not live is beyond me.  It's always the motorsports that seem to loose out when it comes to schedules.

Norton won't be mentioned until Fridays Senior as that is the only race it is qualified for, Mackman is riding other bikes in the other races.

The coverage is pretty good, could do with more racing and less waffle but overall a decent enough show within it's limited time slot.

Live would be better

The coverage is ok to good. Thanks Mr Whitham. Elbowing it in favour of tennis or watching paint dry shows how our sport is rated. Guess I will always be a second class citizen.

I thought that although it is the TT and there is nothing boring about it that ITV4 have some how made it boring... There's not enough coverage... Taking you around the pizza parlour... Just show us the bikes that's all we want to see... No one watches the TT and wonders "what's the local cuisine like"

The actual amount of coverage is poor. In an hour long program, when the intro, ending and all the ad breaks are added up there is just over 30 minutes for bikes. There is far too much waffle between those ex riders and as for those two old farts on the sidecar, Parish and Whitam, I could run faster on my bare feet.
