Re: Eurosport UHD no sound

I am not a sports fan but I did watch a little of the OG coverage on Eurosport 4K. I only had ambient sound and no comentary - if there was a comentary. The picture quality however was excellent. If only Sky Movies had similar PQ.

I've just realised to my shame that I meant commentary not sound ,😭

Re: Eurosport UHD no sound

My V6 glitched and recorded both the Eurosport 1 and later starting UHD coverage of the Men's Cycling Road Race. I actually ended up watching BBC coverage live on BBC1 and Red Button HD but I looked at the UHD later, and my impression is that Discovery did nothing other than overlay a logo. Not only was there no commentary but there were no advert breaks and the video kept going for a long time after with landscape footage, etc, like there was nobody in the Eurosport control room.

Basically I think they were using the raw footage from the Olympics Broadcasting organisation, hence no commentary, and the long pariod of watching ALL the finishers with no intercuts to studio or ads, and the long pans around the local area scenery for what felt like half an hour after the race. (I viewed it in FFW if you were wondering if I watched all this padding.)

Re: Eurosport UHD no sound

They've put a banner up saying it's a fault and they're trying to fix the commentary

In some ways they'd be better leaving it. I remember when VM had French Open Eurosport UHD and the commentary person was different than on Eurosport 1, and was highly irritating.

Wish it happen more often . Endless chatting about nothing is really mind numbing
