    I meant to but forgot to watch PAN-USA last night, so caught up with it today on P+. So I didn't suffer from their late posting of the match.

    But I would like to offer one bit of praise for P+ (in the context of mucho criticism about deficiencies that I've heaped on streamers in the past)...

    P+ has a very spoiler free interface. When searching for the replay, there wasn't one tile or still which gave away the result.

    And that cannot be said for the other streamers who've been at this a bit longer than CBS has.

    I was able to watch it live and I was very pleased with how much bumper coverage they had of the US match.

    I watched it later and was thankful that they posted the pre- & post-game shows. Many of the other streamers just offer the match itself for reply and none of that pre/post production... NBC comes to mind.

    And it brings me back to the thought I've been having for a few years, ever since major media streaming came to the fore: that the streamers should all adopt a baseline of best-of-breed features, so as to make for a consistently good service across the board, and also a more universal style of GUI that makes it easier for the customer when switching between streamers.

    There may still be room for product differentiation I guess, but the basic design or core set of features, shouldn't be unique or patentable, and should be available and dependable across all platforms.

    Is this naive thinking in our uber-competitive capitalistic world?

    My thoughts exactly....I called Paramount Plus customer service and they claimed that they stream live feeds as they 't lknoreceive them and do not insert or remove ads, I don't know wahat to make of it either. I am hoping it was a one-time goof, but I will be watching another match following this one, and hope that it was an ananomaly.

    PS. I switched to TUDN while the ads were running and their broadcast was not interrupted by ads.

    Yeah, they definitely messed up inserting that ad and it wasn't from the UEFA feed.

    I miss the nightly recap show. They have just about every other clip available, but I miss the 25 minute ish show every night of the CL. I don't have time to watch 15 minute poorly edited match events highlights they seem to make in-house.

    I'm with you, I like a show of hosted highlights. The Golazo! show is great though. It took me awhile to figure out it is not in "highlights" when looking for it in the evening. I think it is in "other". This week, however, I've been fortunate enough to watch it live while working. What a great way, though perhaps overly distracting, to get through the work day! But it is available in the evening also. Of course it is a lot longer than 25 minutes.

    I'm watching HJK Helsinki vs. Maccabi Tel Aviv, and the audio temporarily switched to something else, and I don't know if it was from the game in another language.
