UK TV coverage of Netball at the Commonwealth Games

Well its that time again, the Commonwealth Games. This year they are in Melbourne which means that those of us here in the UK either need to be able to work the video recorder, or be able to stay up until three in the morning!

The groups are:

A B
New Zealand
South Africa
England
Fiji
St Vincent & the Grenadines
Malawi
Australia
Jamaica
Samoa
Barbados
Wales
Singapore

Top two teams from each group through to semi-finals

I haven’t found any comprehensive list of what’s on when yet, so here are a few different sources (all from the BBC website) put together in one list. Also further down the page are instructions for videoing those extra freeview channels (coming soon)
