  1. Bloke in North Dorset

    No problems here. Production is OK, better than BBC but not quite as good as BT, even though it mostly the same team.

  2. Used Amazon to stream a couple of Premier League matches last December. I was in Denmark at the time, different AirBnBs on different islands.

    No problems whatsoever.

    I have no idea what those muppets are doing to encounter problems.

  3. Worked A+ for me. Camera angles and commentary miles better than ITV, BBC or Sky. BT is OK but amazon is marginally better, for instance they limit the replays so you don’t miss bits of the game.
    Five stars.

    Ducky,

    My guess is some form of protest at the RFU selling it to Amazon rather than giving it away to the BBC.

  5. At the door of halfbacks in general, a shifty, disreputable bunch living off the efforts of the noble, hard-working props and the lanky sorts behind them.

    “ Any general uselessness can be laid at the door of our half backs.”

    I’d love to know what Youngs has on Eddie because there’s no reason whatsoever to keep giving him game time when he’s hardly ever looked at other 9s, let alone given them decent game time.

    And as for that thug Farrell, the sooner one of Smith, Simmonds or Umaga replace him the sooner England can start playing with a bit of flair and imagination.

  7. Sounds like an extension of the principal – the only intelligent thing on any football pitch is the grass – also applies to the spectators.

    An e-mail received from our gentle host this morning would suggest that noises shortly to be heard emanating from a modest end terrace house in Ely will be occasioned by the occupant banging his head against the walls in fury. Well done Tim!

  9. I read his evidence submission. Amazingly, there’s even something in there I agree with.

    On the other hand there is an amusement here. The committee approached me…….

    It seems part of the problem was that Amazon only had UK rights and a lot of the complaints they received were from outside.

  11. This was from Amazon help

    Thank you for that information. We apologize but upon reviewing your location you’re in Northern Ireland. Rugby Autumn Nations Cup coverage is exclusively available to Prime members based in the UK. We don’t have the rights to other territories. ^RS

    Went down well!
