I thought the picture quality was poorish. I could not work out whether it was in hd or sd but I suspect sd?

I didn't have any issues with the coverage - although tonight has more matches.

He's the best in the business imo.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Any idea on how to turn the commentary off which i've been told is possible? Is this just on the web or can the v6 do it too?

Tried to watch Villa match on V6 tonight at 7.28 all I got was a blank screen. Worked last night. Good old PS3 with Amazon app on to the rescue (wired).

There was some stuttering early on but thankfully it has settled down for now.

No V6 access still. Looks like a case of first come first served.

Click on the speech bubble to change audio/subtitles.

I haven't been able to manage that on the V6, just on the website, and on the app on my tablet. The V6 is about a minute behind the website.

The red card in last night's games was referenced on Twitter a full minute ahead of broadcast.

Now that may be adequate for us old fashioned types, sitting in our slippers smoking pipes might just be watching on our tellybox in the corner of the room waiting on the post once a day and messages from carrier pigeon. However, I think "yoofs" these days use iPads and what's app to exchange correspondence on a far more frequent basis.

So there is an arbitrary limit on the number of streams?

PQ may be good on UHD matches, but the rest are not up to scratch and too many stutters, motion problems etc.

Not impressed, reminds me of watching BT matches streamed to a large TV through a friends laptop - can only watch for a few minutes as the above problems abound.

If this is the future, heaven help those who expect better - and to top it all you cannot record it (or at least I haven't found a way)

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Watched the Liverpool v Everton match last night and overall it was a well put together program but again the picture quality was not good. I`m on a 30 day free trial,watching through my smart tv app but I doubt I will take up a subsription once the 30 days are up as I only got it to watch the football.
