I wonder if Spark Sport is considering some late tournament pricing, e.g. to match the super early bird pass. I imagine that they could pick up a lot of subscribers including myself who didn't want to deal with potential hassles but are happy to join now most of the troubles are resolved.

 

I'm not paying $24.99 a game nor $89.99 but would pay $59.99 for the convenience of watching the last games when I want.

 

 

@Hammerer I would also pay to watch the games but not the pricing they want

 

 

I would quite happily pay $15 to watch the 4 games tonight - will likely stream from elsewhere

I would also be interested in per round pricing. I would happily pay $20 for the four games tonight, maybe even $25.

I see the media moans from the earlier match have over flowed to more artillery and an article update for the current

 

Love for someone to have made a public survey page shared to each for those with 'issues' to utilise. Drop down box for region, device type being used, wired/wireless, ISP and ISP connection type. Like a geonet felt report.

 

You would get a statistical and rather quick look at any common denominators to target (rather than wait for any sort of 1:1 interaction to extract the same). For all we know they may be on some middle of nowhere reselling ISP with wireless connection, no backhaul or CDN optimising. All the while being the cheapest one they've jumped on expecting the best.

I figured if they are savvy enough to use facebook to complain (and miss out words and substitute words with single letters) chances are that market was likely in a smaller/younger aged bracket :)

Anybody watch the live EPL Man Utd vs Liverpool game this morning?  Got quite a few stream drop outs and the 'sorry this channel...' screens telling me of an error and when it finally came back the live point had moved on but I couldn't go back in the stream?
