Ratings and Reviews
Need knowledgeable announcers.
I was watching the Wisconsin Indiana softball game and the announcers, much like every other game, made numerous mistakes that were so often repeated that they stopped being irritating and fell toward the humorous side. The word phenomenal ended up applying to everyone except the pop vendor who was merely outstanding.
The announcer continuously referred to a runner on third base being only 90 feet from tying the game or 90 feet from scoring the lead run. You would think a runner standing halfway between second and third would be easy to pick off. One other example, with a runner on first base and one out the batter hit an infield pop up that was mishandled. The runner from first was thrown out at second at which time the announcer, in his uniquely homespun manner proceeded to explain the rule that was supposed to um uh um not allow um uh that. I believe he was incorrectly referring to the infield fly rule. He should read up on that one. Not since “whose on first” has an announcer so entertained me with his explanation of the action.
BTN Plus production values + lack of AppleTV app
I understand that students may be involved in BTN Plus productions and that there is a learning curve to this work. However, it is unconscionable to charge $15 a month to watch games where video and audio feeds are OFTEN not on when they should be and where graphics are not maintained in a timely manner. The last Gopher women’s basketball game (vs. Illinois) included a long lapse of audio and video in the fourth quarter, cutting off an essential part of the game. When the game came back on, the graphics weren’t being maintained, so the score and game clock were wrong. It basically ruined end of game coverage. WHICH WE PAY FOR. Also, I know it’s been mentioned, but it is past time for an AppleTV app. Make improvements or I won’t be subscribing again.
Start with the good, I guess, the only feature that never fails: the 15 second preroll ad every time you have to restart a stream that’s crashed. Otherwise, this app is an utter train wreck. The most humorous bug comes when you are AirPlaying a stream and a Twitter account in the (completely unwanted) “game stream” posts a gif, which takes over the video. The only solution is to kill it, watch a preroll ad, and hope you didn’t miss any action. Why am I AirPlaying if it works so poorly? Because somehow they’ve made it to 2019 without figuring out what an AppleTV is.
But in the end you’re here because you have to be: your team is in this conference for better or for worse, so I guess you will just deal with it.
