LOLLOLLOL

Well, I signed up via the email received from the Scarlets - as I don't have Sky or Virgin, it cost £9.99pm with the first month free.

Saw some of the Blues game - quality on the laptop seemed fine. Now, I need to sort out a blunder made during the signing on, made via Safari... need to be able to log in via Chrome, too, to be able to cast pictures onto the TV - hope (and assume) that will be possible.

Seems that the subscription can be cancelled with 5 days' notice, so I'll let it run until the end of the season.

I am not certain if the on demand is available for 'direct' subscribers - I'd hope so, as Premier won't be sharing the cash with other companies. That will be needed if I can't watch live, or of I'm at the game and want to see it again, obs.

One black mark against Prem Sport.  They were giving updates on the Ospreys game during the Blues game which totally ruined it for anyone like myself who was looking forward to watching the Os game straight after the Blues.  Angry
That's the Scarlets, its in their DNA.

It’ll work out cheaper paying monthly than using the offer if you just wanna watch the rugby.

I have now confirmed that I can cast Premier to my TV via Chrome - good.

I wonder if there is a highlights show? I'd like to see highlights of all the pro-14 games, but don't have the time or energy to watch all of the matches in full.

Anyone know?

Yes. It was on earlier.

The highlights come in two parts, it seems. No doubt, you can catch up with the programme somehow.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

I watched on the Premier Player app casting onto the tellybox via Chromecast - saw the Cardiff game live, Ospreys & Scarlets games On Demand.

All looked good - match presentation was great for the opening weekend, I thought - using the big screens in the corner of the grounds was really neat, although may be problematic when cold liquid sunshine starts pouring from the skies.

Interesting to see ads for Scarlets season tickets in the ad breaks - not sure if these were shown on all channels or just me - having selected 'Scarlets' as the team I follow, it could have been serving specific ads to sections of the viewing audience.

One big issue was not being able to fast forward or rewind any of the coverage once I started casting -I could only pause & play, so I had to watch every second of coverage, analysis and ads, and, if I stopped casting to control the playback, it went back to the very start of the programme once I recommenced casting. Angry

Not sure if this is a bug, something they'll work on or simply a 'feature' of their app - it'll be highly irritating if it doesn't get fixed.

I'm also waiting for Premier Sports to get back to me on the 'First Month Free' launch offer - I signed up the week before, didn't I. Confused

How do you find the picture quality from a chromecast compared to a subscribed HD feed on the TV?

Seemed as good as, or better, than HD on my 8 year old HUMAX Freesat box - on the app, you can choose from 3 definition levels: low 360p, medium 540p & high 720p. I watched on high - it probably doesn't bear close inspection (ie - if I stand 6 inches from the TV screen), but then action sports rarely do on my telly.

On a phone or tablet, it looks very good.

That's odd - I had the 'usual' time-line at the bottom of the screen (for a completed game - the Blues one) which, as usual, allowed me to skip forwards to a particular time - some guesswork involved when missing out half-time comments, but no biggie. If I was you, I'd try again with a game from the weekend, to see if you can get the timeline by clicking, etc.
