Clicking around the website, I notice they have three UK offices. Two in London and one in Leeds. One of the London locations is Feltham.
So I wonder if they have taken over the former offices, studios and tech infrastructure left by British Eurosport when they left the site?

Eurosport shared a building with Arqiva, whose site has closed. (It's on street view here, complete with pigeon netting over the dishes on the roof). DAZN are in the unit next door. I'm not sure if they have much broadcasty stuff there beyond some VO booths, which are used extensively for the WTA world feeds. Their main UK MCRs are in Leeds and Bangor (NI).

There's some post-production suites at Feltham too I believe, but not much else.

All the gallery equipment used by Eurosport in the Arqiva building was advertised on Peaker Pattinson's site a while back. I believe that Arqiva have closed the operation on that site.

Yes, completely closed. From what it looked like when I drove past a few months ago, it looked like another (non-broadcast) company was moving in to the facility, but I'm not too sure.

'Watching the feeds'
Yes. Great to do for any armchair sports fan, until colour bars appear or picture goes to black, and then you have to work out what's going wrong, where it's fallen off the air, and what to do to get it back, and quick.

When I used to do goal intake for a local ILR, I thought it would be great fun to listen to all the local games - before I actually did it.
Juggling ISDN feeds, and tapes and digitial editing systems (and before that, carts) making sure everthing was recording, and keeping an ear on the other games, whilst you were editing down a goal commentrary for later playout. It's dead easy with 1 or 2 matches, not so much with 3, and with 4 or even 5 on some Saturdays, the mental concentration needed - not fun at all.

I sat in with the Saturday football commentary team at my hospital radio station a few years ago pre social distancing regulations. There was someone doing exactly this (without carts though) and someone in the other studio playing music pre game, half time and post match.

The first live game that afternoon was West Ham’s first ever home game from the London stadium. The line went down for a few moments and music was played and the host at the hospital radio studio filled in giving other updates and hospital information while they got the line back.

The hospital radio station had their own sports team who went to the grounds to do live commentary from the local grounds.
Have you washed your hands?
