A page or so back I mused as to why I can't get live tennis via my streaming stick and the Prime App. It appears that despite it being only 3 years old, live Prime streams aren't compatible with that make of stick. A new one beckons.
However, been off work today and caught some of the European Games on BT Sport. What a strange multi sport event it is.
No pitch/arena/track side product event sponsor advertising (bar the event logo and Belarus itself) actual low attendance at the events - with the usual groups of school children, and the military in clear view to fill up the seats.
TV presentation is a curious beast as well.
Yes -multi camera angles, the ubiquitous event logo on the replay wipes, and a set of name, score and timing graphics that look like the IOC's for the Olympics if the development and design money for them ran out after four days.
Commentary is a puzzle as well. BT Sport are taking the English language world feed commentary - and supplementing it with their own 'continuity style' back at BT Sport HQ, but I'm not even sure that the world feed commentators are even at the stadia. Given how off mix the sound is, I'm wondering if they are all off-tubing everything back at the IBC
