No contact details on the website, so I have sent them a message on Facebook. Not a very encouraging start!

Here's a post on Google Play relating to subscription to Premier Sports (TV and app).  This is from about 2 weeks ago, some earlier comments are not quite so positive!  I think Premier Sports could endear themselves to their customers by not charging for their helpline.

'After reading the reviews had my doubts, but took the plunge, subscribed via sky card (online at premier sports) even though I no longer have sky. You get the app this way as well as on the sky box. Went back on to prem sports player online and logged in to create password. Can cast off my phone too now to fire stick, apple TV etc. Was easy once I sat back and took in the instructions, seemless live feed. Well happy roll on the pro14'

For info - just subscribed. Ordered  for the sky platform for £89 for the first year. To obtain £89 offer you need a promo code which was Premier89.

I've done the £89 deal too, but haven't created an account to use the online player yet. Thumbs Up

Have to admit, the reviews on Google Play are extremely poor. Premier Sports better get this right, otherwise we'll be looking at another broadcaster next season for sure.

Didn't realise that Premier Sports 1 is the only HD channel too, Premier Sports 2 is standard definition Cry

I’ve had no problem with premier player. The ‘offer’ they have is terrible.

I have just subscribed and will be relying on the streaming service as I don't have Sky or Virgin. At the moment, the online service is extremely poor. The website is OK is as much as I can watch both channels - and cast to my Chromecast device using Google Chrome browser. However, there only seems to be a programme schedule for one channel. The Android app is of very poor quality. At the moment, it only seems to allow access to one of the channels. Casting to the TV is extremely basic and the app does not even allow access to the schedule.

Compared to the BTSport app, Premier Sports are way behind in their streaming services. They really need to sort this out.

It was ok for a preview show. Leinster were bound to have a lot of coverage as winners. People need to remember it’s not Scrum v so won’t be just concentrating on the Welsh regions. I’ll wait a few weeks before casting judgement. If people aren’t happy with it they can just unsubscribe.

Tried the Premier Player app out via Chromecast a couple of nights ago - picture quality was good on HD (you can select from 3 definition settings), but functionality was not great; you can play & pause, but can't fast-forward, rewind or spool to a chosen point from the app while it's casting.

The view-on-demand catalogue is also in need of attention - several programmes have the wrong description (eg - 'Rugby Preview' is actually NASCAR highlights) or have misleading illustrative images. Just seems like no one's looking at or loving their presentation, and there's no PRO14 category yet, just 'Rugby League'.

I watched the Awards show, but haven't seen the Preview Show yet - from what I've heard, it's pretty Eirocentric (it was produced by eir Sports for their domestic market, and presumably acquired by Premier Sports when they realised they didn't have time to put their own preview programme together in time), with more than half the show focusing on the four proud provinces of Ireland.

Production quality & style seems very derivative so far - nothing to match BT Sport's tone, insight & coverage, but hopefully this will develop and the presenters & pundits will add something to the live coverage & weekly highlights/preview shows once they've got over any teething troubles.
