I'm trying to watch the rugby. Very annoyed by constant updates about sports and leagues I don't care about and didn't tune in to watch. Awful, cluttered screen. Can't concentrate on the movement in the game with constant pop-ups. If you're televising a game, please do that. If I want to know which team is currently top of Portuguese 1st League (which I couldn't care less about) I'm sure a quick look on my smart phone will give me the answer; really stupid to keep flashing that info on a rolling basis.
It is only present on re-run matches and not on live games though. I know it may not always be possible, but if you plan ahead and record all the games you want to watch, then if you cannot catch them live then at least you don't have to watch the re-run later.
