Audio Problems On beIN SPORT Plague Beginning of Manchester United’s Capital One Cup Victory Against Stoke

stoke manchester united Audio Problems On beIN SPORT Plague Beginning of Manchester Uniteds Capital One Cup Victory Against Stoke

Viewers of today’s Capital One Cup quarter-final on beIN SPORT between Stoke City and Manchester United were in for a surprise. Fielding the commentary team of Phil Schoen and Ray Hudson from the beIN SPORT studio in Florida, the audio feed from the ground kept cutting in and out and quite possibly seemed to be from another match. Perhaps the feed coming from the Football League was to blame, but the technical problem unfortunately reflected poorly on beIN who were sporting the network’s blue-chip commentary team for the match.

The short weather delay gave beIN an opportunity to fix the problem, and from minute 28 onwards the telecast was well done. Yesterday, beIN SPORT’s broadcast of Sunderland-Chelsea also featured an audio feed that seemed less distant than today’s broadcast. That commentary team of Ross Dyer and Ian Joy was also stationed in beIN SPORT’s studio in Medley, Florida. But the sound provided in that match felt more natural.

Manchester United held on to win the match 2-0 against Stoke, to book a place in the semi-final. In the other match, West Ham United defeated Tottenham 2-1 at White Hart Lane. The semi-finals of the Capital One Cup will feature Sunderland, West Ham United, Manchester United and Manchester City.

What are our readers thoughts on beIN SPORT’s League Cup coverage?
