Still nothing on the EPG to suggest that Friday - Sunday night will be full screen again this weekend.
I hope it wasn't just a one off and all 3 nights will be full screen every weekend moving forward so at least we get something.
Agreed, I hope that we at least get the same coverage as this weekend, it's a good start and gives a bit of opportunity to catch more games when some repeats don't have the L!
BT clearly lack a sports news only channel, I don't want to know anything else whilst I am watching a game especially other scores.
And most annoyingly, the score of the game you are watching, or one you are planning to watch. I'm reminded of the Likely Lads...
All we can do is keep complaining. Has anyone here complained about their proposed "full-screen via red-button" solution being unacceptable, and got any reponse? Especially if you're a Sky customer (without HD red button services).
At least I watch it via BT TV, so at least will have the option of full-screen in HD, but it should still be full-screen by default, with the non-standard "Gfx L" version being the one hidden away on the red button.
Just hoping that we at least get the overnight stuff over the weekend in full screen, the EPG isn't very clear yet.
The same as this week just gone will be a decent amount of games again, and it's a starting point.
Anything less than that will be annoying.
The "L bar" is such a lousy thing to have done to this channel. The "No GFX L" is something but doesn't really do enough for me and neither will a red button opt-in to full frame (for a start you can't do much with your Sky box when on an interactive channel aside view it and exit pretty much almost everything else (eg browsing EPG, channel surfing) becomes ruled out).
What a disappointment especially with all the extra European football content added (highlights of every Bundesliga and Serie A game Mondays and Tuesdays). It could have been, perhaps should have been, a "go to" channel and in fact almost no need to record anything with something of interest on so much of the time. Instead somebody who probably doesn't give one iota about watching any of this that it affects has come up with a way to kill virtually all of the content and spoil all scores. Ironically or mistakenly thinking people want a load of squit splurged over the screen to ensue they tune in to what they must think of only as a load of dead air delayed coverage of games that are a tiresome chore to have to show or repeat.
Who would ever have thought a month ago that something called the "No GFX L" would appear as a piece of terminology and would have been entered into the televised sports viewing lexicon?! The "L bar" idea is a very, very poor choice of presentation in my view. I can only hope enough people continue to complain and make it clear that it needn't encroach on the viewing of European football at all and the decision makers take note and act accordingly by removing it for good.
