They've started doing it again and for no reason!
Why oh why have EPL started giving running commentaries, updates and results of other games in EPL games. I bought Optus Sport so I could watch pretty much all the games, being retired, and ONCE AGAIN in an incosequential midweek game the updated scores and result were not only given away by commentators without any kind of heads up warning but with actual screen in screen images during the game making it impossible to avoid hearing or seeing the score/result.
I was watching Burnley v Man City and wanted to watch C. Palace v Bournemouth aftewards but in the end it was pointless as I was repeatedly told the score and result throughout the first game I watched.
There is no reason or excuse for doing this when I can find out IF I WANT TO, results from the web, social media and any other number of instant opportunities.
PLEASE, PLEASE STOP THIS practice and pass this feedback on AGAIN to whoever is responsible for this stupid and ruinous practice which is taking away my pleasure yet again.
This happens on the last day of the season and then and only then is it understandable with relegation and premiership battles iontertwined but this is pointless and makes your package of sport much less attractive.
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
Thanks for posting your feedback. We'll be passing it on to our TV & Content team.
I know it's not just limited to Optus Sport, I experience the same when watching NBA, NHL, MLB etc. on ESPN , they must run out of things to talk about!
Whatever it takes to stop this, OPTUS should be on it. It happened again today as I was watching Man U vs Everton and they cut into the Spurs vs Wolves game repeatedly with scores, footage etc. which I had planned to watch afterwards.
POINTLESS WHEN YOU KNOW THE SCORES/RESULTS.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE STOP THIS ABSURD PRACTICE. IT IS RUINING MY ENJOYMENT IN A VERY BIG WAY.
I will keep posting these complaints until something is done about it. Giving away running scores, showing footage and giving results from other games in the EPL or any other league for that matter is POINTLESS AND RUINING MY SUBSCRIPTION.
I pay Optus Sport to watch every game and not to have them ruined by results and scores from other games being given away.
Surely whoever has instigated this policy is not so out of touch as to NOT think that IF I WANT TO KNOW OTHER SCORES THERE ARE A MILLION INSTANT WAYS I CAN FIND OUT.
WHY is this still happening and getting worse?
The last game I watched had screen in screen footage for heaven's sake.
Sorry about the caps but I am now angry and will keep posting to this forum until something is done and I encourage others to do the same.
It simply isn't enough for a yescrowd moderator to say he's passing on the feedback.
I'D LIKE TO HEAR A REASON WHY, WHOEVER IS RESPONSIBLE, IS DOING THIS.
AND TO STOP IT. I can't think of a single good reason to ruin our enjoyment.
