THE EDITOR, Sir:
I am writing to voice my gross displeasure at CVM, which fought tooth and nail to snatch the broadcasting rights for the Olympic Games. Now, at the beginning of the XXX Olympiad, CVM is failing to deliver on its ability to broadcast!
I reside in the Portland area and it has long been an issue trying to get suitable coverage from this network in my neighbourhood. Once I realised that CVM would be carrying the Games, I immediately called the station and sought to ascertain when its coverage problems would be rectified.
Whenever I was lucky enough to get through on the phone, I was promised numerous times that CVM was working on it and that the woes would be dealt with well in time for the Games. The result? Two days of terrible, on-and-off reception. On the day of the opening ceremony, not a blip from my TV!
As I am writing to you now, I am fuming with anger, because of the incompetence of this network. I am going to miss out on the greatest sense of pride to be experienced by watching our athletes carry our nation's colours on the world's biggest sporting platform!
It's not fair, and I would urge this network not to take on any other such privilege unless it can provide islandwide coverage as it was supposed to!
