It says it all about how bad the BeIN sports coverage is that I'd rather watch BT.

I had RTE 2 on for a minute before Duff said something along the lines of " there's no one tougher to beat at Anfield than Liverpool" Fascinating insight into Duff's experience of playing at Anfield.

No. But as I have found out, you don't miss much when the football is on either! LOL
I know, there's times I wish there was an option for crowd atmosphere only with no commentary on BT Sports, otherwise you might as well watch it with the volume down - Darren Fletcher's voice in particular would just go right through you (like listening to Chris Moyles)! At least they had the sense to move Michael Owen out of the commentary box to the studio after a couple of season - he was even worse than Fletcher! Dead  And don't get me started on that toe-curling ad for their coverage in their 1st season which showed MO rehearsing commentary and then re-anacting his own goals when the fella training him popped out for a moment...
 
That's why I watched last night's game on RTE. Not perfect either but better than BT. 
 
@Huntacha - Those 2 ex-Sky Sports gimps, messrs Keys & Gray still present the BeIn coverage don't they?  I watched their build-up to an EPL game a couple of years ago when I first started using IPTV and quickly went over to a different stream!  Absolute cringe watching those 2 talking sh*te to each other.  Disapprove

Ye they're on BeIN most days of the week. Hard to believe that they were considered ground-breaking in terms of football coverage in the early Sky era.If it wasn't for unreliable streams, I'd watch Sky, BT, or RTE. 

There was a fantastic display of irony a couple of weeks ago when Carrie Brown (who does a lot of the pitchside stuff for them) became chairperson of the Football Writers Association, should have seen them congratulating her. It couldn't have been more awkward.
