Catch the Milan derby, Juve v Roma and many more.

Lakers vs Knicks for the basketball fans live too.

This is the first time I've watched ESPN or Setanta on Freeview and even though it's a good selection of matches this weekend the picture quality is dreadful.

The artifacting is some of the worst I've seen since the ITV games from a few years back.

If ESPN cannot either secure extra bandwidth or a better codec there's no way I would subscribe.

Shame really
Agreed the annoying ticker tape constantly playing at the top of the screen and poor freeview picture quality has told me one thing ... I wouldn't waste my money on this mob.:facepalm:

And they picked a weekend with absolutely no English football in their schedule!

Yeah i'd consider subscribing if the picture was any good, buts its like watching football back in the 70s/80s.

Well for someone who doesn't have Sky like myself, it's better than watching on a dodgy stream or having no footy at all.

And I get to watch UFC as well which was one of the selling points.

I don't have Sky either (not a fan of Megladoch) but I have to give them credit for great quality (but Cripes do you pay through the nose for it :eek: )
