    basic NBC sports app has been refusing to load 90+ % of the time over this weekend, 5 minutes of a match and then booted out and no reload of the NBC home screen

    Unfortunately, those of us who are on a fixed income, or with low paying jobs, are now being deprived of the joy of soccer games on regular network or cable channels. What for some is “only” $25.00 a month is a big decision for us. Some times the choice is between having access to the Fulham games or access to a blood pressure medication. Every year the viewing options are fewer. I understand that this is the way it is now and it will not change. Now, you celebrate the access to Premier League, Bundesliga, and MLS , via some streaming service. I will simply be grateful for whatever is shown on NBC, Univision, TUDN, or for any repeats on some cable channel that does not require subscription…or for whatever highlights I can catch on YouTube or the webpages of my teams in LIgue 1, La Liga, etc.

      If you have access to MLS, NBCSN or ESPN sites via a computer, you can at least see good highlights. EPLs on NBCSN are 10-12 minutes. MlS’s are about 4+ minutes and there are lots of good highlights on ESPN-FC’s site. I, like you can only see games that are not streamed, so our choices are becoming more and more limited and I am also a Sounders fan going back to the days of the NASL.

    I watched the Chelsea-Liverpool match a few weeks ago on Peacock and the picture quality was terrible and was buffering frequently. When compared to ESPN+ and Fubo, Peacock’s feed quality is the worst of three so far. Hopefully things improve with Peacock because as a Chelsea supporter, not all of our matches in the Premier League will be on TV and I will have to rely on Peacock to watch Chelsea play.
    Also I have a question for Chris or Kartik about MLS TV rights heading into the playoffs also being a Sounders supporter. My question to them is: With both the Big Ten and Pac 12 of college football starting up in a few weeks, do you think MLS will move playoff games to midweek so that they can get games on ESPN and Fs1? The reason why I ask is because I have a older relative who is a big Sounders supporter but she does not have cable and relies on Amazon Prime Video on her tablet to watch Sounders matches produced locally. Amazon has told her that unless the match is being shown on local TV in the Seattle area, Amazon cannot stream matches that are on national TV. I am thinking about adding her to my Fubo profile to offset this problem so she can watch the playoff matches that way and would like to know if that is a good idea. Any advice would be helpful Thanks Chris

      I hate to go against the current on the criticism of Peacock when it comes to picture quality… but I use Apple devices and Apple TV 4th gen… and the picture quality of premier league matches is outstanding. No issues there at all. In fact all of the PL content provided is great stream quality on Peacock.

        I think they fixed some of the PQ issues this weekend. The peacock replays look good (other than 30 FPS). Before this weekend, the replays from NBCSN that were loaded onto Peacock were fine but the peacock replays were compressed (look at logo graphics for scoreboard…..before some characters were not legible and now they are).

        I submitted a request to peacock to address the PQ compression (not sure if coincidence) and to list all available replays in the replay section (right now it’s last 12).

    I am listening to the new podcast and wanted to ask why so you think peacock doesnt have the studio show to replay? I work during the day so couldnt see any of Monday’s studio shows which is silly.

    At least Peacock is moving in the right direction!
