NRL360 moves into primetime as Matty Johns gets new show FOX LEAGUE

Fox Sports has announced a series of changes to its dedicated NRL channel Fox League which will see programs Queenslanders Only and The Greatest dumped from the schedule while Matty John’s gets a new show.

As part of the changes, Fox League’s agenda-setting, hit magazine show NRL 360 will move to a new 7.30pm timeslot from Monday, May 20.

The change will allow more viewers and fans to access and watch NRL 360, as hosts Ben Ikin and Daily Telegraph reporter Paul Kent dissect all of the big talking points, from every angle, that are impacting the game on and off the field.

Premiere episodes of NRL 360 will now air each Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights at 7.30pm on Foxtel’s Fox League (Channel 502) with encores airing at 9.30pm and 11.30pm.

“NRL 360 more often than not sets the agenda with its opinion and latest news around the code and we consistently get feedback from fans and viewers that they struggle to get home early enough to watch the show at 6.30pm, so moving the NRL 360 to 7.30pm will allow more fans to see the show live,” FOX SPORTS Head of Television, Steve Crawley said.

As a result of NRL 360 moving timeslots, Fox League has also announced that the hit audio podcast, The Matty Johns Podcast, will now become a television show of the same name, airing on Wednesday nights at 8.30pm from May 22.

The Matty Johns Podcast is hosted by Fox League’s Matty Johns, who is joined by Kent and FOX LEAGUE journalist James Hooper for an hour-long chat about rugby league, with the trio telling entertaining stories, always with a touch of wit and humour, about the game they love.

LEAGUE LIFE, which previously aired on Wednesday nights, can now be seen on Tuesday nights from 8.30pm. Hosted by Yvonne Sampson, Lara Pitt, Jess Yates and Hannah Hollis, LEAGUE LIFE will continue to conduct the big interviews and reveal the most inspiring and remarkable stories in the game.

The schedule changes will also see Queenslanders Only and The Greatest take a break from their current timeslots.
