Boxing on Channel 5
OB facilities for Silver City Productions
Televideo are delighted to be working for Silver City Productions as facilities provider on their long-standing contract with Channel 5, providing the UK’s main terrestrial boxing coverage to millions of homes across the Freeview platform.
Having already covered events from Edinburgh and Cardiff, this weekend Glasgow was centre-stage, for one of the most highly anticipated domestic cards in recent memory, as Josh Taylor defeated Ohara Davies at the Braehead Arena. Televideo’s HD4 was the production hub of the 11-cameras broadcast, which was presented by Mark Pougatch. Coverage began on Channel 5’s sister channel, Spike TV, with the show channel hopping to Channel 5 at 10apm for the main event. Josh Taylor added the WBC Silver belt to his Commonwealth title as he stopped Ohara Davies in the seventh round of what was a thrilling light-welterweight contest.
The action continues to get bigger and better – on Saturday 29th July Televideo’s HD8 will make the journey to Belfast’s SSE Arena, as Carl Frampton fights Andres Gutierrez, with the hope of getting back in the world title picture. The coverage is live on Channel 5 from 10pm.
