Yup.  We're the lab rats...

Mediapro have handled broadcasts for a lot of different leagues including La Liga in Spain. Not sure that's accurate. The level of service provided by them probably depends on the number of subscribers.

What drives me nuts, is that when you ask them a question through e-mail or twitter, they never reply.

I got a response to my email... but it took 24 hours. By then had finally put up the Canada vs Cuba game and told me that the game is "already" available. I really don't understand why it's not instant. The video is already on their servers because they streamed it. What takes so long to make it available for replay?

I guess we should be cheering for Mexico in this one so that when we inevitably beat them in the Nations League championship it will be worth more ranking points. Right? That's how World Cup Qualifying works now?

Did anyone watch the Women's La Liga match last Saturday, and any comments on the broadcast? They say it was a hard fought 0-1 win for At Madrid and maybe not the most attractive match of the weekend.

I saw parts of the first half. Given At Madrid is far and away the superior team on paper and was playing against a bottom rung team from last season, they didn't look like it. They weren't dominating at all. So, it was a listless first half with minimal clear chances.

As I have seen with nearly all Tier 2 stadiums in Spain, Huevla's stadium looked good. It looked like it is in the middle of nowhere though. Atmosphere was sorta like Valour's. Nobody on camera side on the pitch. But the crowd that was there was into the match like a real football crowd vs the screaming girls you hear at US women matches.

Production was not fancy but solid.

Thanks so much. How was the commentary, one person in English then? 

About the stadium, have to say: Recreativo de Huelva is the oldest football team in Spain, it is the founding club. Also the oldest on the Iberian penninsula to be continually active. It was started by Englishmen in the area, I think working on the Rio Tinto mines. But maybe also in the sherry business. So it is a noble stadium, it is near the old Rio Tinto Mine dock near the river, and they have a respectable fan base, so it's a shame the men's team is in fact in 3rd tier, a classic mess.

They have yet to put any of the other games up. They advertised that they would have every game live or on demand. Yet some have never been shown live or on demand and they have yet to reply after many days to me.

I’ve hooked up my iPhone to my tv using an AV digital adapter that is plugged into a HDMI cable . I watch games on DAZN like this and have no problems. But when I watch OneSoccer like this the picture freezes after like a few minutes on my TV it never freezes when I’m watching on my phone when it’s not hooked up to the TV. I’ve noticed when my phone is hooked up to the TV when the screen on my phone goes black the game on my tv freezes.This doesn’t happen when watching the DAZN, even when my phone screen goes black when watching DAZN the game does not freeze it keeps working but not with one soccer. Anyone know what the problem might be ?

I shouldn't have forgotten the commentary - that was the worst part. He said Huelva didn't provide their lineup till just before the match. So, he was quiet at times in the first 15 mins as if he was memorizing Huelva's lineup sheet. It took him past 30 mins before he started saying players' names regularly.

Otherwise, he was boring. Said the match time way too often as if he was calling it on radio. Not sure of his background as he pronounced the stadiums name in full Spanish glory many times but spoke a non-accented English.

Well thanks so much, interesting. 

Teams are required to supply the reffing team with full lineups well before a match. If the guy did not get the names, that was on MediaPro. Since they were broadcasting in Spain, there should have been no excuse. 

Thanks for the take on that, interesting to hear. I'll tune in some week.

Edit: just an update, there is quite a mess in Spanish women's football as there is an all out war for tv rights. While 13 of 16 Primera teams signed with Mediapro and 3 did not, now other teams are not letting Mediapro crews into their stadiums. This is after having signed with them and also received funds for the deal: last Sunday it was Madrid CFF that stopped them, and Sevilla is planning on the same. Basically, the Spanish federation is intervening to break the Mediapro agreement and handle the rights themselves. So I am not sure that OneSoccer will be able to find a match to broadcast every weekend as promised if they keep on the infighting.

So...Missed the match but I am back after coaching youth soccer...a diehard supporter here with a subscription to onesoccer. The posted schedule says the replay is on at 6:45 PST and here there is no game to be found. So frustrating. How do they expect to convert casual soccer fans when even people like me are ready to launch a remote through the window?
