A regional publisher’s local TV channel which came under fire after a failing to show a live football match has hailed the success of a second live broadcast.
Archant’s Mustard TV was due to show Norwich City’s friendly against West Ham last week but the broadcast was marred by technical problems which meant the match was not shown live.
Instead, a full recording of the game was made, which started broadcasting while the second half was still in progress.
But according to the TV station, a second live broadcast featuring Norwich City’s final pre-season friendly against Brentford on Saturday passed off without a hitch.
Mustard TV said it had been praised on social media by football fans for the live broadcast, after it previously received criticism for its coverage of the West Ham match.
Managing director Fiona Ryder said: “The whole Mustard team did an amazing job for both games and have been rightly praised for the professional production and quality of the pictures, commentary and studio work.
“For reasons beyond our control, the live satellite link failed for the West Ham game, but we were able to broadcast our recorded coverage whilst the match was still being played and we apologised to our disappointed viewers.
“The Brentford match went like clockwork which we are really pleased about.”
The match was shown as part of Mustard’s On The Ball City Live show and included half-time analysis and a post-match round-up.
