For stuff not worthy of a thread of its own

God knows what sort of graphics are being generated for the NI v Faroes women's game on the BBC online stream

I think it’s been established before they’re from the production company, rather than BBC Sport NI.

You see the same scorebar on a lot of 247.tv productions but I think the BBC Sport NI stuff did turn out to be produced by a different company.

Broadcast have an article saying S4C managed an average of almost 450k for the England vs Wales rugby (for the actual match rather than the whole broadcast). I wonder how that compares to their highest ever ratings, I don't think I've ever seen a list of their most watched shows of all time.

Wales v Hungary (Euro 2020 qualifying match) was their highest-watched programme in the 12 months to 31 March 2020, according to their annual report; 366,000 reach.

Edit: Because I'm all heart, TV Forum, I've gone through their Annual Reports back to 2009, when they were still operating a split Welsh/English service pre-digital switchover.

The programme in that time period with the highest-reported reach was Wales v Ireland on Sgorio, in the year to 31 March 2018: 627,000 viewers.

I tuned in late to the Wasps v Newcastle Falcons rugby union match on BT Sport Extra 5, so I didn't get the name of the commentator. It sounded like Mark Pougatch. But was it, and if not, who was it?

BTW my team, Newcastle Falcons, won, 27-17!

200th episode of RedZone from NFL Network tonight, for those looking to catch some old Fox and CBS NFL presentation.

Judging by the fact that Amazon Prime is trending on Twitter, it seems their coverage of the football earlier left something to be desired. Reports of sync issues and buffering.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Sync issues a plenty tonight, bizarre effect stream stops or almost stops sporadically then picks back up for 90pct of the time, several restarts required though. Their recommended solution of signing out of the app and signing back in is bizarre, and didn't work either.

I had audio sync issues in the build-up to Liverpool v Wolves. Impossible to spot once the match is underway, I closed and re-opened the stream during the ad breaks, and other than that it was fine.

The rugby was problematic yesterday losing the picture and sound, but think that was more of a standard broadcasting fault than anything related to the show streaming.

P.S. Did Amazon use Clive Tyldesley last season as well? Do find it somewhat ironic that after years of people somewhat unfairly complaining about ITV's football coverage that as soon as they let him go nobody seemst to have a bad word against him.
