Amazon looking to provide their own Welsh language option due too many people watching via S4C

BT Sport was rife with it from an English perspective yesterday during our game

Were a bit. Nice professional coverage with the others. Good quality too. Then there’s Premiersports.

Much as I dislike subscribing to them, the game needs their funding and their coverage.

And that’s what the game has to look at. The revenue lost by not having crowds will be regained from the highest bidder.

Amazon's coverage was far better than Premier but streaming games from Amazon to my tablet, it would always stream in low quality and would never improve the quality to the point where you could barely read the score properly. Casted through the TV the quality was perfect but hope they can look to fix issue with mobile devices as there were complaints from others on social media. 

Premier has always worked fine on every TV/Tablet/PC so no complaints there, but I had an email from them last night that they're upping the price by a pound a month starting in January, so i'm sure when most of you are looking to renew your yearly subscriptions next time they'll be asking for a tenner or so more than this year. 

I’ve noticed that too. I’ve seen UHD films on TV that have pretty average quality on smaller devices.

That's what I'll be watching - Amazon can go and... you can fill in the rest.

Diolch, S4C!

Amazon attract plenty of variable press covering, but they have been an employment godsend in these challenging times.
Announced today another 100k full time workers being taken on in North America for example.

Totally agree Wil. Also taken on 10k new people in the UK.
