The World Bowls Tour and the EIBA have done a deal with Premier Sports 'to provide Bowls fans with the most
comprehensive televised coverage in the history of the sport.'  (Their words not mine.)  The full details can be found
here http://www.worldbowlstour.com/component/k2/item/1723-historic-tv-deal-for-the-world-of-indoor-bowls.  
Is this the end of the BBC coverage?  Will we have to pay to watch our sport?  
The BBC are still  covering Potters in January 2013 but I can not find any information for any further coverage.  
Does anyone know if the deal means the end of the BBC coverage?  Details of TV coverage can be found at  
www.lovebowls.com  
If I find out any further details I will post here.  Is bowls going the way of football,  cricket and rugby?

Potters appear to be mounting a campaign to keep bowls on the BBC.  
They are asking us to watch/log-on to BBC iPlayer when bowls is being broadcast so as to register that you are watching bowls.  
I assume the more people who register the more likely it is for the BBC to broadcast it in the future.  
Bowls gets very little coverage on TV, it would be a pity to lose what we have.

This is the BBC coverage of the Potters Holidays World Indoor Championship 2013.
Monday 21st January - Saturday 26th January 13.00 - 17.00.
Sunday 27th January 14.00 - 16.30.
At present I can not find out the channel or if it is on the red button, anyone know?
This could be the last time bowls is on the BBC.
This link has the schedule for the next 12 months on Premier Sports http://lovebowls.com/index.php/tv-schedule.html
