Initial thoughts LFC TV?

Recommended Posts

Well, after almost a week of programming what are your initial thoughts? (I considered that this may be too early to ask, but as most seem to judge a player's success at the club on their appearance as a 72nd minute substitute...)

 

So far enjoyed what I saw, with following comments:

 

- Does the channel only have rights for Premiership years? Each time I have seen a match/highlights from past years, they have been post '92 - what about earlier?

 

- the adverts could do with changing - the sequence Calrsberg/Setanta/John Barnes preview/ Setanta is burned in my mind

 

- the EPG doesn't seem to reflect the programme being broadcast

 

- commentator is a bit too enthusiastic about Liverpool goals and chances.

 

Any more?

Alright so far. Repeats a far bit but thats to be expected as every satellite channel does.

 

Get a bit of a build up before the match starts which is far better then the usual shite Sky offer up.

 

Yet to see a live game on there so i dont know how they will fare when that happens.

 

The commentator is bound to get a little excited when Liverpool score as i would imagine he is a Liverpool fan.

 

Its great to see people like Gary Mac, Gary Gillespie, Roy Evans, David Fairclough on there giving there opinion has its done from the heart and they tend to give the view us fans have instead of going with the flavour of the month.

The commentator on the clips is Steve Hunter, well at least I think it is. From my experience of listening to eseason commentary on our games, he is extremely enthusiastic and likes to emphasize a lot by shouting when the ball goes anywhere near the goals.

I'm hoping that they show whole Ressie games on there and definately some U18's matches as so far this season I like the look of Marv Pourie, and would love to see him over the entire 90 minutes rather than highlights.

I'm really enjoying it, but that may just be because I've not got a whole lot of options for LFC news. Particularly enjoyed the show on the new stadium. It looks fantastic, doesn't it.

Watched a bit of it, I don't want to watch the reserves or any of the up and coming starlets, I much prefer to watch proper football like we used to play in the 60's 70's and 80's, I hope they get whatever permission they need to show some of the games from any of the above era's so us old so and so's can relive our youth. :whistle:

That girl presenter who Malarkey made a thread about is crap at interviewing people. She has got no flow. Just structured questions with no charisma.

 

I still would...

Whats with the difference in time between the audio and the picture?

Indeed. You can tell it's done on a budget, as the picture quality (at leasat on Virgin, not sure about Sky) is terrible.

The bitrate across all of the Setanta channels is substandard compared to Sky.

It might have a few teething probs seeing as it's only just started. As fo the Oz broadband I have had some probs with connection etc today so it may also be a teething thing. I think if you're broadband is 1mb + you should be fine. If it's streaming set it to the 225 instead of the 450. If you are on 2mb + you should be ok with the 450.

 

As for the channel, early days yet but it's nice to have around. Always interesting to see some old faces too and the Barnes show should be good.

When is Mad Erik Meijer getting his own show?

 

How about some 'Where Are They Now?' type features about what some of the greats from yesteryear who are not now football presenters are up to.

Agreed - incredibly stilted, I saw her do the news section and there was no flow at all.

 

Enjoyed the Academy profile programme though...

I haven't watched much of this at home but I really like being able to have it on my desktop at work via the eseason. First good thing about eseason. Just watching some of Robbie goals.
