Leigh Centurions are pleased to confirm improvements to the highly valued Leigh Centurions TV channel which will have widespread benefits to the subscribers and also the Club’s coaching staff and players.

LCTV is a highly popular subscription only service that offers match highlights and full match recordings as well as interviews with players and coaches and a fantastic archives section.

Subscriptions to LCTV are to be increased for the first time since its launch in 2014.

This is to help fund new equipment, to improve content, to assist the coaching team and to help fund the addition of LCTV Head Commentator Dave Parkinson to the Club’s full-time staff. From the current subscription rate of £3.50 per month and £32 per year the rates for new subscribers and renewals when they fall due will be £5.99 per month and £60 per year.

The production team are already looking at increasing output for the channel in addition to bringing the popular Mixlr service under one banner. A number of other options are also being explored.

Leigh Centurions Owner Derek Beaumont said: “We have taken into account many factors, not least that many fans have mooted the subscription rates are too cheap for the service they receive.

“The Club is gearing up to reach Super League as soon as possible and the changes to LCTV subscriptions will greatly assist us in many ways.

“As well as funding investment in new equipment and helping meet rising production costs the content will be increased with Dave intending to do many more weekly clips and interviews with players and staff members if he is based at the club full-time.

“The primary benefit will be that Dave will be on site to film all club training sessions and this will have huge benefits to the players and coaches as we strive to improve the infrastructure off the field to match the huge investment in the playing squad.

“I am confident our valued subscribers will see the added value in LCTV and support the Club in this area.

“We are also looking to change the Mixlr broadcast so that it is a live broadcast that is only available to LCTV subscribers and will be included in the new subscription price.”
