I thought I would watch the replay of the Astra Giurgiu v West Ham game as I hadn't watch it live.
Along the bottom came the score of the West Ham game, the one I was watching!
Gave up and swithced channels.
Well experrienced exactly the same when waatching the PSG game this morning -- Not impressed -
I can't agree more with the comments against these graphics on BT Sport Europe. This channel is the only reason I subscribed to BT TV, and apart from the live content, it's unwatchable.
VfL Wolfsburg's first cup defence was on in highlights form tonight. This was the first showing of the game on BT Sport Europe - and it was reduced to a shrunken picture inside BT's idiotic ticker frame.
So now we have the ridiculous situation where if you want to watch a replay of an Australian Rules football match on BT Sport 1 or 2, you can do so in full screen quality, but if you want to watch the first run of ANY European football highlights show on the premium subscription channel BT Sport Europe, you are treated with contempt and must endure a ticker and shrunken picture. Why are European football fans treated as second-class citizens, BT?
I'm considering my subscription now as it's clear that all Bundesliga highlights programmes are going to be accompanied by the SkyBet League Two league table and the Vanarama Conference standings.
Only somebody who isn't a genuine football fan could misjudge the football viewing experience like this. This weird disconnect between how they treat live games and highlights programmes (and replays) is bewildering. For example, the Saturday afternoon Bundesliga match CAN ONLY BE HIGHLIGHTS as it is not broadcast live due to the afternoon blackout in the UK. So next week we'll get highlights of Werder Bremen v. Schalke straight after the live 5.30PM Dortmund-Gladbach match. One will be full screen and the second game will be buried beneath a wave of experience-destroying graphics. Why?
BT sport should start a sports news channel and put it on freeview. I think it would do very well.
