A week after viewers slammed Seven for flipping between Wimbledon matches, the network is again under fire from sports fans.
This time the furore was over a broadcast of a Manchester United v Perth Glory match on 7TWO.
Viewers were unhappy with the “murky” standard definition quality of the broadcast, with some giving up altogether.
TVT reader Sully noted, “Sound is horrible, after coming back from ad break before game started you could hear the commentators (Mel/Dave Davutovic and all) saying ‘um, er, ah, I’m just hearing myself back’… With no one commentating for 10min of dead air while we were left to work out what the pre entertainment was and then straight into the call with Basheer from what sounds like a shoebox room with no atmosphere mics.”
It was a big night of Sport for the network with Wimbledon on the primary channel, plus AFL (on Seven or 7mate, depending on location).
Is it possible adding 7food has stretched Seven’s spectrum too thin and it shows when there are three Live sporting events?
Update: A Manchester United v Leeds United match will air on 7mate on Wednesday night. Fingers crossed there is no repeat….
