StarBlazer: Wow - I'm really glad you doom merchants weren't around when Mr Bell was working on his telephone - we'd still be sending stuff by Morse Code or worse - paper!!!
The introduction of the phone didn't stop me from sending stuff by Morse code, or paper for that matter.
StarBlazer: To launch to 10s if not 100s of thousands of people on one day in a very narrow window of connection is no small feat which I think they pulled off reasonably well. Is it perfect? No. Will it get better? Yes. The Android app has flawless quality.
Still an inferior product for someone that supports one of the more popular clubs and already has Sky.
StarBlazer: If you want to complain, write to Sky and tell them how disappointed you are that they were unable to secure the rights to the EPL.
I agree, Sky screwed up with the rights and I've made it known to them.
StarBlazer: Ask them why they are not able to offer a service for EVERY game in the EPL.
To be fair, the coverage the past few seasons was pretty good. For every time slot where there was a game, they showed it, and had delayed coverage for overlapping games. On some nights, games were shown concurrently. Not the same as what PLP offers, but it was good enough for me.
StarBlazer: Also ask why they are not able to provide a service where you can select which sports you want and only pay for that rather than paying for 20+ sports that you are not interested in!
I'm on the fence on this one. One one hand, I'd love to be able to pick and choose. On the other it would mean the less popular sports will never get shown because there wouldn't be the numbers to support it.
StarBlazer: The status-quo has to be removed - we need genuine options other than Sky.
Again, I'm on the fence on this one. Yeah, it'd be nice if it wasn't a monopoly, but I wouldn't want to have to subscribe to x number of providers and have to worry about x number if devices to watch something.
