    Discovery take over the Red Bull MTB Coverage

    Yeah, I posted it further back in the page. I'm not sure it's great news - it's almost certain to be behind a paywall, and no longer free.
    I can't imagine any MTB racing without Rob Warner........

    Anyone else having difficulty with the Eurosport player on the Amazon firestick, today?

    I have two sticks, but all I am getting on both is a blank home screen...

    Annoying that the ability to watch a program that is live on a mobile device, but rewind if you have come in late, is still not allowing you to cast it to the TV.

    Instead it just jumps to the live broadcast, and you can only rewind a matter of seconds.

    Your options then, if the result hasn't been ruined, is to watch on mobile or laptop.

    That always really irritated me as well.

    I was dissapointed to see they have not yet fixed it - at one point, it used to work, on the old ES player at least.

    It's definitely a fairly major bug.

    EDIT: Scrap that. Forgot we were using the Disco+ app rather than the ES or GCN+

    I'm about to watch on catch up today's races.. I'll use a hard wire from the laptop on ethernet, today the weather is ugly, wet and cold and I can guarantee using wifi and chromecast will have the thing stuttering all the time..

    Working on my PC but no audio for Nokere Koerse as yet.

    Snap, exactly the same. Silent cobbles on the PC.
    Checked down detector and there were a lot of reports around 2-45pm.

    Nokere Koerse coverage is now streaming for the E1 content, but not for ad free.
    That's still silent so it's obviously another Eurosport SNAFU moment.

    I got sound and no pictures on one stream. Pictures and no sound on the other.

    Lo and behold, as soon as the tv coverage finishes, the streaming comes back online, with the whole live coverage and the previously missing commentary.
    Skullduggery afoot methinks.

    Sod it, I think that's as good as it's going to get.

    Cheers Andy!

    I got the Disco plus for that £29... it's all tat but I do watch some of the stuff on it... use the phone app to chromecast... never a a hitch!
    Switch to the cycling catch up , so not even live, and guess what buffer , buffer , stutter, stutter.. I can't fathom it out.. so for the cycling is has to be hard wire from laptop to the tv.
