    Watch LoI habits

    As per other thread - of the 10 PD/FD games each weekend, how many would you watch online?

    I'd watch UCD and that's it (not helped by different subscriptions for each division, but still, the goals in Twitter is enough for me in the other games)

    I’d watch the two Friday games and the best pick of the Saturday games. I wouldn’t be concentrating on the full 90 of every game but would have some of them on in the background.

    Three. Usually the two Friday ones and one on the Saturday. Usually pay the least attention to the 5:45 match on the Friday unless Pats are playing. Would pay full attention to the other two.

    Got a watchloi pass with the Pats Supporter package this year that replaced the usual season tickets. It had a few perks , watch LOI pass, 10% off the club shop & your name in the hat for tickets when/if they become available.

    Could be just your internet connection maybe? It never buffers much for me. What kind of speed do you get where you are?

    Watch Treaty and even that's tough going for me! Not going to bother with other Div 1 games on LOItv.

    Some weeks I might watch one, other weeks might be two or three, depends how busy I'd be, or if they'd clash with other games. I'll probably watch one tomorrow evening

    Don’t really understand why they wouldn’t stagger the Saturday games like they did last season. Surely there is no extra cost.

    Last season with Shels for the first 6 weeks up until early September I was watching at least 3 of the 5 matches, once the European Leagues/Champions League/American Football returned that month I only had time to watch Shels matches and the odd match not involving Shels that had relegation implications

    I wasn't impressed with watchloi last year, though it was a decent first attempt. When I heard about LOI TV I had mixed feelings. I decided it was best to go with the game by game rather than committing to a full season. After poor quality (both the football and the coverage) that resulted in Youtube and Facebook broadcasts of the second half of the first two games this season I gave up. I might watched the Cobh games, or maybe a cup game if we're in a Premier Division ground but I'm done for this season unless we are allowed back into grounds.
    The quality of broadcast combined with the poor quality of football from City, and the fact that relegation isn't possible means I just don't think its worth my time getting emotionally invested in this seasons team. If I could go to the games I'd be there, home games and as many aways as I could. I'd have been at pre season games, underage games, probably even some womens games now they are playing at the Cross. But I have never loved football on tv, its much better in person, and its even worse in empty stadiums. I haven't been watching the Premier League, Champions League or International games either. Empty stadiums with a single camera angle that makes it hard to even see who the players are on the far side just doesn't appeal to me. There was a clip at the weekend of what appeared to be a cracking goal by a Shels player on twitter. I couldn't see the ball after it left his foot. I had to take the fact that it was a goal in good faith. Maybe its my eyesight getting worse but it all adds up to a waste of time and money for me.

    Got it with my season ticket from Rovers.
    Interesting results to this survey when you consider that 24 out of 30 people on this site who would be at the committed end of the scale of fans watch 2 or less games per week.
    Kind of explains why the numbers are so bad overall
