And where to go to avoid the Royal Wedding other than going out, hiring a DVD or watching content from other sources?
While plenty of channels are covering the Royal Wedding there are still a few not affected by it. Not to mention the fact that Friday night football also airs as usual in its respective markets.
Here’s the run-down (free to air only*):
Sydney & Brisbane only: NRL on Nine airs from 8.30pm with the Canterbury Bulldogs playing the Brisbane Broncos at 8.30pm and South Sydney Rabbitohs taking on Cronulla Sharks at 10.30pm
AFL: Sydney vs. Carlton play, and it airs on Seven from 7.30pm in Melbourne and Adelaide, 8pm in Perth. Sydney and Brisbane viewers can see the game on 7mate from 7.30pm.
ONE HD: The NBL Grand Final Game 3 airs from 5.30pm eastern with the NZ Breakers against the Cairns Taipans. WWE experience is at 8pm, UFC Jake Sheilds Special at 9pm, then UFC Prime time at 10pm. Based on Sydney times, other time zones check local guides.
Business as usual:
On GO!, its your typical Friday night with a Scooby Doo movie at 6pm, then The Benchwarmers at 7.30pm, followed by Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey from 9.15pm.
ELEVEN has its usual programming for the night with So You Think You Can Dance at 7.30pm, followed by Sex and the City from 9.30pm.
ABC3, SBS ONE and SBS TWO all feature regular Friday night programming, while ABC News 24 shows as regular programming as well, but the news will undoubtably be dominated with the Wedding. Regular programming also remains on 7TWO in NSW and QLD.
And, with the Chaser’s Commentary now pulled, ABC2 will has two hours of The Chasers War on Everything from 8.30pm. The Royale Family at 7.30pm.
*Obviously on Pay TV, those channels not covering the wedding will air what they usually do.
