The streaming app for games is totally unuseable. Constantly rebuffering about once every minute. The NBC/Verizon combination has ruined the experience of watching games by only televising on one real channel and streaming the other games. Wish they would launch the other "Extra Time" channels and in HD but not holding my breath.
Even if the 1 million viewers are in US, Verizon has less than 5% of total US households.
That would mean that only 5000 Verizon households would want to subscribe.
I have maintained DirecTV as my primary TV content provider SOLELY because of its full lineup of Premier League games. FiOS was supposed to start carrying them in 2013, but it never happened. Hoping this will change for the upcoming season, but considering that's only a month away and nothing has been announced, it doesn't appear likely. Is it a cost or capacity issue?
Would be nice to be able to see the additional matches on the TV (and be able to record on DVR for watching later). The NBC app on the ipad is OK, but doesn't stream via Air Play very well (not great quality) and I can't record it to go through as I want to on DVR as I can with the games on NBC Sports as I am rarely home when the games are on.
