    I haven't been able to see the disallowed goal for Sligo yesterday. Soccer Republics highlights of all games on twitter seem to be just the goals and then the final 30 seconds leading up to the full time whistle. If they can add the irrelevant final play sure a disallowed goal can be added too ? I'm really losing patience I have to say, hopefully the product is improved as the season goes on.

    Observations from the first weekend of watching a full scehdule of games:

    1) Realised that it is super annoying that 3 games were on at the same time on Saturday ? Why? Just stagger them like last year. Makes no sense to me. Give me (an avid Dundalk fan) a chance to watch other LOI games and use the platform more.

    2) Before the Sligo/Dundalk game, for the minutes before the game, the camera focused on an empty pitch, with the microphone on, and chatter in the background. I felt embrassed having it on, like catching the production when they werent ready. Have some infographics or something (or highlights from last year/last week). James Rogers at Dundalk argus makes the point that there are journalists inside the ground who are passionate for the league, who would probably love to speak on camera. Give them 5 min before the game at half time. Its really not rocket science.

    3) (maybe minor) Like most I guess, I watch replays of events on twitter (due to its absence on the plaform). Yet, the Rovers/ St. Pats highlights was geoblocked on RTE. For the life of me, I dont know why league games were geoblocked on RTE player before WatchLOI (FAI cup games werent), and why highlights of action are internationally geoblocked now. You swear they do their best to hide the league as much as they can.

    Overall, WatchLOI is a great service as without it where would we be. The second commentator is great. But there just seems like a dedication to not improving/ doing the little things wrong.

    Whats with the lack of clock or score in the corner of the screen. That's just not helpful in any way.

    This is so annoying , i was watching all 3 matches on 3 different devices and every time i left the room to use the Loo/ get coffee/ say hello to wife etc i came back wondering had there been a goal in any of the matches and checking the internet for score updates on my phone.
    I know this might sound like whinging but it would have been so easy to make this better 2pm 4pm 6pm kick-offs and a scoreboard and a graphic up on screen pre match with the teams.

    Streaming is here to stay, i can honestly see Rovers streaming all games next season for an individual charge per game even if people are allowed in.
    A few hundred people at a tenner either home fans that cant make it or away fans that dont want to travel would pay for a stream of excellent quality like DFC put out for their pre-season match with Bohs.

    Its a throw back to football coverage in the 80's where you had to wait for the score to be flashed up or commentators mentioning goals. Its very very basic effort being made - so much so that 2 commentators is a waste and they might as well just stick a camera on the game and nothing else for minimum cost.

    Its very annoying having no score on the screen. I was trying to watch the goals from the Saturday games and gave up trying to find the exact moment the goal was scored.

    Struggling a bit with picture quality tonight. I’ve selected 1080 but not a chance it is , looks slightly pixilated at times.

    This weeks half time entertainment is the same as last weeks which means it was the goals from 2 weekends ago

    Is WatchLOI for the Premier and LOITV for Div 1?

    What's the quality like on LOITV?

    Yes, and it's fine if potentially variable by club and operator experience

    Rovers v Dundalk: The Watch LOI TV seems to be at least a minute behind the live match on RTE.

    There's a 30-second delay on LOITV anyway for gambling reasons. Maybe that's part of it?

    What's the logic behind that delay exactly? I'm not seeing it. Is it to make sure the markets are ahead of the stream? Are they relying on social media or live score apps instead?

    I think so. Not entirely sure how it helps, or why it's not needed for live games, but it's something along those lines alright.

    Trying to watch a match from last night on WatchLOI but there's still no options to rewind or skip forward. I thought that was just during live games. What a waste of money.
    Mark Scanlon should be publicly executed for this shambles.

    Its a pity as I met Adrian Eames at our game as he rang club looking for stats on our players so he got a number for me and rang. Absolute gent was a good few mins on the phone to him. He was in commentary box with a camera man and laptop and soundbox. Its the bosses that run it that are the issue!

    But you can skip around games?
