Why was repeat telecast shown at 2am?

The Euro 2012 football championships quarter-final math England vs Italy at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev.

I rushed home eagerly on Monday evening to catch the repeat telecast of the Euro 2012 England v Italy quarter-final match that had been shown live at 2.45am.

But when I checked the programme schedule, I found the repeat telecast was not at 8pm as I expected, but at 2am on Tuesday.

Instead, StarHub was screening an earlier group match in the evening prime time slot.

This was most unhelpful for a working adult hoping to relax and unwind and chase the Monday blues away by watching a re-run of the big game.

It is not easy for someone who has to go to work in the morning to watch football in the early hours on weekdays.

So StarHub should be more imaginative in scheduling the repeat telecasts and show them at prime time in the evening.
