I borrowed my son's fire stick. Worked a treat on my 58" Panny, and sounded great through my hi-fi - it's as if I was there!
Excellent picture, no artefacts (until after the game).
Much better than my Now TV box.
Thumbs up from me.

Couldn’t get to the game in the end so Amazon was handy. It was basically BBC, my favourite commentator Guy Mowbray with Jermaine Jenas and the lovely Eilidh Barbour and the not so lovely Lee Dixon presenting

I have to agree with Simon Jordan on this matter the EPL should set up & broadcast their own games. You could buy a season ticket of say 49.99, or per match at 3.99 or somewhere around that mark. Millions of dollars to be made per day with matches normally spread over 3 or 4 days and more when there are mid week games.
Fill out the rest of the schedule with U23 games, documentaries, highlight programmes & the like.

Been saying this for years myself. Every club as part of their contract with the EPL should have rights to stream their away games that are NOT being shown on any other service. That way it wont affect home attendances (this excuse is becoming lamer by the year as streams have proved that home attendances aren't affected).

Clubs could sell "online away season tickets" for £3 a game and make a small fortune...even if they only restrict it to club members initially.

E.g. if the Ttl cost were to be approx £45 a season (15xaway games not shown on the tv) multiply that by 30k subs, thats £1.35m before costs. £2.25m @ £5 a game and £4.5m @£10 a game.

The only thing I could see it affecting would possibly be away support...

B'fluff only brought what looked like a few 100 last night probably due to it being on TV (but also possibly due to it being freezing cold, the Southwestern Train strike and them being shi'te).

It's not that easy or cheap to setup otherwise the likes of SJ would be offering a platform.

The other thing is because the clubs etc can offer it doesn't mean they will sell it cheap they are greedy look at their merchandise prices as prove of this.

Heres another example take a look at Palace pre season which is offered via streaming by the club look how poor that is also look how much they charged.

There are many outlets offering live streaming of Premier games, mainly via iptv.
Why would you pay the club anything to watch just away games, when you can have every game played in. Premier, Championship, Champions league and domestic cups for £1.50 a week.

Sorry, I missed your reply. Yes I tend to agree. The problems with having all of these packages to sign up to is that is becomes every more fragmented and expensive. I'm all for them offering more choice, but not to the point where you need a qualification to work out how to follow your club!

On a good paid-for streaming site one can watch all EPL games. No names here but invitation-only are usually far better and offer streams on channels other than Sky and BT, usually US or Canadian.

indeed...in sure we use a very similar service.

i would imagine (and i could be wrong) but if that service was brought to the masses via a legit source i have no doubt pretty much every football fan in the country wouldnt think twice about paying £8 a month subscription for such service.

Which is what I, and obviously you too Braunston, do. For an outlay like that, remarkably good value.

It’s cheap for a reason. It’s just bootlegging. After broadcasting costs, equipment, presenters etc I’m not sure if they’d be able to match the current tv revenue.

But you’re not too reluctant Rudi
