Bloody hell Taylor and Deeney are pretty good!
Loved Mooney as a player but his commentating skills are so poor.
Were petty honest in their views whereas Mooney does have that bias edge ..
There is nothing wrong with our commentators being slightly biased.
After all we all want us to win.
I had the pleasure of the Blackburn commentary. That was biased.
If anyone gets a chance to see ‘swans tv’ for their games, it’s brilliant. Like two stoned dudes commentating.
Yeah nothing wrong with the commentary being biased it is being played from our Club website for paying Watford fans.
I watched the game by Sky red button, but Hornets Hive is vastly superior to that. It was one camera, no replays, no build up, no half time talk, no post match comments or interviews. It was the most basic experience you could imagine, although there was a commentator throughout the game.
Only watch the Sky red button coverage if there is absolutely no alternative.
I wouldn't pay a tenner to watch HH when I've already paid for Sky Sports.
That was my view before last night, but I might revise it in future. I found the red button picture quality unacceptable on the TV, so ended up watching through the Sky Sports app on the iPad which has the red button option. I agree with HB1 that the single camera view and having no replays is very basic. The commentary was adequate but no more.
I had an initial problem accessing the Hive pre-match show for a few minutes but that resolved itself. I'm not a fan of the rather bland 'analysis' they go in for on Hive, but I quite enjoy some of the different guests they get on, e.g. Martin Taylor and Danny Graham yesterday. Given that I'm spending an awful lot less than normal on following Watford at the moment, next time we're a midweek red button game I'll probably shell out the £10. Not when it's Sky's main game though.
I think the red button stuff relies on your internet speed. I saw a few complaints about picture quality in Shoutbox and while it was no where near Ultra HD for me, it was far better than a standard definition programme.
"The Watford players need to keep their heads up, there's still 5 minutes left so they're going to get another chance."
Erm, Tommy, we're 2 goals ahead, not pushing for an equiliser...
I thought that it was good enough on Sky last night. After all, I want to watch the match and I couldn’t care less what most commentators say anyways. Most of it is regurgitated rubbish we’ve all heard before.
Lack of replays was strange, but it didn't retract from the match imo
Yeah I did hear that right then, I was thinking to myself have I misheard this when he said that.
Can you not watch the game on Hive this afternoon? Only seem to be able to buy Audio?
Think it works if you use that code they gave for Sky games before the Boro game.
Ah I didn't see that one?
Nice goal !
Delayed on the Hive !
Ikechi Anya on the Hive tomorrow.
An out of contract left back..
I loved him when he was here but far too much has gone wrong since he left to warrant another chance.
Bit like Abdi.
All went downhill career wise when the left .
Is tonights game on hive just logged in and there is no video option?
It’s live on Sky so I think that means it’s available for season ticket holders only.
I have logged in using my code from the start of the season.
Christ, you’ve hacked the system.
All I can say I glad I didn't pay for it!
Unfortunate you can't say that on Saturday at the end of the match, if you want to watch it on Hive Live,
I enjoy Hive Live but that analysis guy takes the biscuit, Emma knew it was coming, we all did, the God of Football was listening. Never tempt fate when supporting Watford, stay nervous, don't count your chickens and only big it up after the game, IF the result goes our way!
This is the best Mooney has sounded in a long time.
Hive ever so live.
Not even a message or audio commentary.
Had to get the radio out and listen to 3counties
And this is why teams use ifollow rather than trying to do it themselves.
They pause talking for so long you aren’t sure if it’s all gone down again
I’ve subscribed to hive but have to watch on my phone as I don’t have screen mirror thing. But I’ve watched on Iptv when at home and had no issues. Couldn’t tell you about stoke game as I’m at work

They must refund us surely?
Just seen someone post a message from the club apologising they said that everyone who paid will be fully refunded.
