TV3 don’t seem to have learned from their previous mistakes, after getting off to the worst possible start for their Six Nations coverage.
The broadcasters were blasted for their use of adverts right before kick-off when they screened the 2015 Rugby World Cup, and despite this, have continued to do so.
While it didn’t make much difference ahead of the Ireland and France kick-off, they managed to miss the start of the Wale and Scotland game by playing too many ads.
The reaction, understandably, hasn’t been great.
