Default England v Estonia and Jump TV

I see that England v Estonia is on Jump TV tomorrow, at $6.95 for the match. I'm thinking of shelling out in the hope that it's a high quality feed because I've ended up with P2P wobbly feeds and Chinese commentary too often in the past. Has anyone else tried Jump TV? Is it any good? Cheers.

OK, well I'll answer my own question. The Jump TV service was OK. Not great, but OK. It was 700Mb/s, hardly broke up once, and had English commentary, though clearly not the BBC commentary; no packaging, no half-time discussion etc. Not wide screen. I don't know that I will fork out the $6.95 again on another occasion, but I must admit that it was nice not to have to do the usual faffing about you have to do with P2P, TVAnts, SopCast and all the rest, and it was a lot better feed than those. Just wish they'd show the matches on proper telly. I'd happily pay $6.95 to get a decent widescreen pic. on telly.

No experience of these folks. Why don't you use UEFA website for 6 euros from now on - very good quality !

Looks good. But dont forget that if you like radio commentary you can stream most matches on listen again via the BBC Radio Websites (five live and all that). All you need is a wireless connector from your pc to your audio equipment and as they say Bobs your Uncle. All you have to do is shell out for the equipment and never pay again. Equipment not expensive and sound quality perfect.

Thanks for that. Interesting! I've taken a look and it's the same people -- "sportfive". The websites are almost identical; the only difference that I can see is the pricing in dollars v. Euros. $6.95 for JumpTV vs. Euros4.95 for VideoSport, which are virtually the same price.

Problem with this for the footy, though, is that FiveLive don't broadcast the commentary for international games to internationals Are you saying that the commentary later becomes available to internationals on Listen Again? I'd never thought of checking for that. However, by that time, I've already watched the match, so it's not a lot of use to me, unfortunately.
