They just seem to go to commercial breaks at random. ...not 'we'll be back after this break' or anything. ..very strange.

I'd consider that a bonus actually!  It's dire.

 

You'll get a refund if you complain.

I don't think they know how to cope with so many ads!  They're perfectly ok during the Championship matches.  Maybe they have less control as it is IMG who are filming?  That's a wild guess though.  All I know is that they don't just break off for ads during the Championship coverage and they have their own choice of production crew for those matches.

Yeah I know, I have had PS for a long time. The coverage just seems a bit random during this WC.

Issues I have had with Premier;

Earlier in the year (Featherstone v Sheffield) my feed dropped out.

During the New Zealand v Cook Islands warm up game the feed went down for over 30 minutes - I complained and got £9.99 refunded and an apology with assurances that 'this wont happen during the World Cup'

Tonight the feed wen down during France v New Zealand - perhaps PS were feeling sorry for me!

 

The coverage has been mainly good; they could do with some more cameras at each game. I like the addition of Voss particularly, Nobby and Dave Woods have been informative and fun. They need to ensure the commentators can be heard, tonights second commentator was a bit muffled - sometimes commentary can be lost during stadium announcements, adjoining commentary teams, taxi radio etc.

I will say this though, it is some comfort to know that your money is not just going to just subsidise PL football or something. It may be a ramshackle affair but its our ramshackle affair!

Theoretically Riley's should have had it because of their partnership with the RFL but sadly partners don't always do what they said they would/we hoped they would.

The commentary tonight and last night is a welcome change from hearing someone bellowing cliches into the mike all the way through the match. I am not mentioning any names!

i like the commentary,  on a different note they have very different accents though.

 

can anyone tell me what accents they are,? voss is aus?, but what accent (and who) is his co-commentator? NZ or like a scouse aus accent as it is very different?

 

weird question i know.

Voss is Australian. Daryll Halligan is a Kiwi although he played in Australia.

I think that's because they're taking the international feed, so the commentators do a continuous commentary which each TV network around the world can dip in and out of. The commentators can't mention ad breaks because there might be one of the TV networks somewhere in the world not showing ads. After the national anthems there's usually a couple of minutes before the game kicks off - so the commercial TV broadcasters can go to ads. The BBC filled this time in with a quick promo video and the team line ups.

I have now watched all the games so far played and have had absolutely no problem.

My only complaint is that I am being spoilt by the sensible and informed style of commentary and now dread having to return next season to the Eddie Waring style showmanship of Eddie & Stevo  icon_redface.gif

Both the BBC & Premier commentaries are a welcome breath of fresh air. I think We've had enough of the Sky hype commentary these days ... where everything seems to be controversial and every referee decision is questioned.

 

Well done Premier(and beeb) !

These two are better than anything we have and they're lighten it up at times with there humour.
Be good if they got a job calling super league games.
