    The Arlo-free world feed on WBA-LIV is nice. Hopefully NBC will do more of this next year, with their fully produced broadcast on NBC/USA and the raw world feed on Peacock as an alternative viewing option.

    i do bbc 5 live for CL, but the delays….. first sign on the video is delayed by 2-3 seconds which is kind of ok, after muting for halftime when reconnect the audio is then delayed by the same which for some brain aberration is very difficult to follow. if i reconnect for a 3rd time then it is close to being synch-ed.

    what i don’t get w/ espn, for their other games their announcers are strong. who at espn is engaging twitman, that individual needs to be fired!

    I agree with all of you. I was watching the game today. I enjoyed it but the commentary from Taylor Twellman not so much. If ESPN wants to use it’s domestic crew for commentary, why not have 2 Englishmen do commentary instead of a MLS guy. Jon Champion & Paul Mariner would be great to listen too. Craig Burley is from Scotland actually played for Chelsea FC, He too would be great alongside Jon Champion.

    Five Live (John Murray & Dion Dublin) and TalkSport (Sam Matterface & Andy Townsend) both had the commentary…turn down your television and turn up your radio

    It’s his overconfidence that really rubs me the wrong way. The absolute CERTAINTY with which he says every single thing.

    This is the problem with ESPN and why I hope NBC keeps the Premier League over them. They love to employ and over-use annoying commentators, no matter how much people out there are annoyed by them. Give me boring Tim Howard any day over Twellman. I mean, I love Jon Champion, but Twellman ruins the experience of watching games he calls.

    And the list of annoying “personalities” doesn’t stop there. I’m sure they’ll offer up some good coverage of the Euros, like they did last time, but there are going to be some games, some studio shows, that are made almost unwatchable by the people behind the mics. And ESPN just keeps trotting them out year after year after year.

    twitman doing the FA Cup, how insulting to us fans! his football IQ is in the negative #s. Why does ESPN do this? really want to hear the fans, but his rubbish has to be muted!

    Looks like West Brom v Liverpool is also on Telemundo and Peacock Premium.
