    Yeah the Director was pretty poor.
    The picture quality and sound are good enough.
    I don't think they hit the jackpot with the studio guests today but it is good they are trying out different players.

    Missed the goal thanks to the arsing around they did with replays. That was poor. However, easy to stream from the iPad to the tv and the quality is fair.

    Andre Gray did NOT want to be there today, constantly staring at the floor when talking and pretty sure when Emma said thanks to him for being there he just stood up and left (even though it was ending anyway) - even saying goodbye to Robbo live on air.

    WillisWasTheWorst Its making less grammar mistake's thats important

    I think we all realise that Gray is not the most articulate footballer and certainly not experienced at broadcasting, but I thought he was fine today: honest and positive about his teammates, if a little uncomfortable in front of the camera.

    Fingers crossed that is the last time Gray is invited. There is more life in a morgue, more atmosphere on Mercury than when he is around. Seemed to have consumed an inordinate amount of mogadon. Struggles in front of goal and also the camera.

    Smoggie more than made up for it with his yelp of delight. Scared the living daylights out of me. :D

    Some people love being in front of the camera (Deeney), some don't (Gray)

    TBF the presenter and Robbo was going on about how good the attackers were and he probably was thinking "thanks - that is my competitors for a place in the team"

    Awkward situation for him.

    Not Andre's biggest fan football wise but give the guy a break chaps!
    If punditry is not his biggest suit at least he had the cajones to do it !!.

    So what is the exclusive Hive Live announcement going to be on Saturday?

    Return of the Mapps on a 1 yr deal?

    3rd kit launch?

    Line up for the 2021 club calendar, available in store immediately after the game?

    Marriappa, in the 3rd kit, posing for the 2021 calendar.

    Now Estupinan has sprained his ankle we're signing him back on a soaking wet loan until he's fit again.

    Assuming it's domestic season tickets for Hive Live as the return of crowds has essentially been ended for this season.

    International broadcast for Reading is limited outside the UK. Fortunately, some countries can view it so a VPN should take care of this weekend's wonderful restriction.

    Would make sense, I wonder if anyone has heard how many people are paying £10 per match, I seem to remember Duxberry said there were around 10,000 who watched the spurs game, which seemed a lot considering it was only a pre-season friendly!

    I think it could be a money spinner for the club as normally they would make anything out of away games, whereas I assume they would get something out of our £10 when we are away!

    For the League Cup games proceeds were split 50/50. Not sure how they’re doing it for league matches.

    I have a bit of an issue with Gray and regularly make my point on this forum to that effect.

    However, I have to say I almost felt sorry for him on the Hive Live show, he, despite playing for us, is well thought of amongst the scum population and he seemed to have a good time with them. As such I think he really struggled with how to answer some of the questions put to him in comparison to Robbo who is a genuine Hornets legend. Much more comfortable when discussing how the game was going because it was there for all to see. It was almost as if he was put on there to test his allegiance, or more that is how he looked like he felt.

    End of sympathy I'll be back on him now.

    i dont suppose they’ll reveal the commercials, but i wonder if the hive could ever get close to gate receipts, as at £10 they’d need to sell maybe 60k to make the same, but... i have bought all the games so far, and would have gone to maybe 1 game every couple of months (long distance fan you see these days).

    Being in Germany, I have the foreign season subscription to Hive Live. Everything has been fine until now.

    However, I've logged in and clicked to play the Reading game, and it says "Unauthorized country. Sorry this content is only available in certain countries."

    Any ideas?!!

    My IP address is correct.

    Is there a provider in Germany with Championship TV rights?

    The game is on ESPN+ here, and I believe somebody previously said it’s not broadcast on Hive Live for US subscribers when it’s the televised game.

    It's working now.

    Maybe the show/broadcast just hadn't started yet and they made an odd choice of error message.

    Nice one. Enjoy the game.

    Not working in Switzerland.... :-(

    The club could at least have the courtesy to send a mail or a text message in advance to subscribers who cannot watch a particular game. I could have done something else with my afternoon!

    This panel would not be allowed in the political spectrum. A bedwetter panellist is required.

    Crap, it's actually not working for me again, it just turned on for the free pre-match show.

    Yeah wtf is going on? Why on Earth would it not be available for European customers? There was no indication that this would be a problem when signing up for the season long subscription!

    Good thing there's at least water flowing in the safe, but what a lame scenario.
