It's always the same times, same channels on the friday - due to the 'set in stone' 'newsnight' on bbc2 at 10.30pm

And it depends how many timer options you've got on your dvd, mine copes with it easliy - i can set about thirty to be honest.

Just as long as NOTHING is cut.

When Bruce played a couple of years ago they cut 'No Surrender'.

More than no surrender was cut of bruce's set - opened with joe strummer's 'coma girl' but the coverage opened with badlands as if nothing had happened there were also other tv omissions. U2 are far more open to the broadcasting of their gigs than springsteen's management allow him to be - knowing u2 they'll probably provide dvd covers somewhere along the line.

Just enjoy the fact that you're going to get the full gig, it'll also be on bbc i player etc so unless there are rights issues everyone should be able to watch around the world.

BBC3 or BBC4 will definitely show it a few days after in full so I'll be able to record that. Just annoying that I'll have to record it on the two different channels, my Sky+ is bound to mess me about.

Hopefully they release it as a DVD, if it's as good as I expect it to be, I'd rather have a Glasto DVD than another 360 one.

The BBC have a dedicated Glasto website which I believe streams the shows live, but only to UK residents. BBC - Glastonbury Festival - Home

However, you can download some free software called ExpatShield which will allow you view the show from outside the UK on the BBC iplayer. I have used it to watch some soccer games and it worked very well.

Enjoy.

Do you guys/gals know if Glastonbury DVD's are usually sold including most acts, ...this time around, it would definately be worth purchasing!

As far as the US broadcast, I guess I'll be checking up on Palladia quite frequently!

rarely if ever i think the most you'll get of anyone is a few tracks as 'bonus' on an official relesae. try bbc i player for the gig outside the uk.

I really hope someone got fired for this scheduling

BBC's interactive red button usually shows Glastonbury, so hopefully U2's set will be intact there

It might be on the red button service the week after. On the night the red button is generally reserved for the other stages. Why should anyone get fired that's the same time slots every friday at glastonbury is shown - the saturday and sunday nights are continual on bbc2 so Coldplays set on saturday will be shown uninterrupted and beyonce on the sunday will do the usual 'you can only show six songs' crap.

First the good news, it appears likely that at least some of u2's set will be broadcast on bbc radio 2 or bbc radio 6 with both stations coming live from glastonbury between 10pm and midnight on friday.

Now the really bad news as far as tv scheduling - we are at the mercy of wimbledon and not only it's weather forecast but also the length of matches. With andy murray scheduled as the third game on centre court any over-run could prove disastrous. The bbc will not leave a murray wimbledon match but nor will they move the news on bbc one at 10pm to accomodate it if the tennis is running particularly late and the roof is on. Cross your fingers that at least the first two matches are straight sets with very few games.

another reason to hate andy murray. it won't come to that.

just had a check of the bbc2 schedule. wimbledon live coverage is scheduled until 8pm. even if it does go over that, it won't last 100 minutes which is when glasto coverage starts. it will not be a disruption.

murray's first round match finished 9.30pm, only four sets and he won two comfortably, work it out.

I'm not sure we need to worry. If the Murray match is over quickly it will finish on BBC2 well before 10pm. If it becomes a long tight match it is likely they will move coverage over to BBC1 and push the 10 o'clock news into a later slot after the tennis is over. They've done that a number of times in previous years (they seem to think people aren't capable of finding the Murray match coverage unless they put it on BBC1. Or that ratings will be higher if it's on BBC1 instead of BBC2). They'd probably push Eastenders over onto BBC2 but for the news they'd usually just flash a message up saying it will follow the tennis. Fingers crossed they keep to the same arrangement tonight.

There has just been a trailer on BBC1 for Glastonbury coverage mentioning U2 as a headliner and with a snippet of Beautiful Day. I'm a little excited now.  ;D  And as they're advertising coverage as including U2 I think it's very unlikely they will fail to show U2, no matter what happens at Wimbledon.
