    Angry Eurosport

    OK, I succumbed to their blandishments and paid the subscription for another year.
    Yet the first time I tune in I am forced to watch 4Ĺ minutes of adverts before the action starts - what gives?

    I get it for free with my tv package, record the stuff, then fast forward as required.

    This is a good idea in theory, however due to Eurosport's laissez-faire attitude to scheduling you'll settle down to watch some recorded cycling and end up watching Czech regional netball championships or similar. Plus any recording of live cycling will generally end 2.8km from the finish.

    Trying to watch my Biathlon this week - and yep bloody tennis on both eurosport channels.

    Why oh why cant they just have the tennis on one channel and allow the other spoorts to continue on the other channel.

    Oh then it was snooker all day.

    This.
    I generally watch Cycling on ES then switch to ITV4 when the ads come on.Sometimes though the ad breaks coincide with each other
    Is the ES subs service just for ESPlayer on your phone?
