    I caught the Utah State vs Idaho State last night on Facebook Live TV (an app on my smart tv). The stream quality was faaarr superior to ESPN3 and never had a glitch or lag to it. It was broadcast in HD which was nice. They had some issues that they could clean up, but it wasn't bad for what it was. The bubbled comments were tracing over the score box, which was annoying. They also had sound level issues where the stadium sound was drowning out the announcers. I can see this being a better option than anything ESPN3 has put out so far. I wouldn't have to restart the feed 15 times and miss scoring plays.

        0Queston for cord cutters. Other than Youtube TV do any of the services allow for later viewing (DVR) for sports? Hulu will let you continue to watch something you started but I'm not sure if it will allow you to watch archived video. Specifically looking at FoxSportsGo and FS1. I might have a schedule conflict with the Xavier game.

          Major shakeup for sports today. Disney (ESPN) has bought 21st Century Fox's assets. While this move does NOT include FOX Sports, FS1 and 2, FOX News or BTN, it does include the regional sports network properties such as FS Ohio and FS Southwest. DIsney is saying these Regional Sports networks will complement ESPN's current setup and not overlap with anything they own.

          In addition to I saw yesterday where AppleTV's TV app now has ESPN available. I have not seen a cost associated with this but that would be a big move for anyone that hasn't decided on which streaming box to purchase yet. In my instance, I have the Live TV package from Hulu. If Apple undercuts them on price I may ditch Hulu or go with ta smaller package from them.

            Played with the Apple TV update last night and it still requires a subscription to something whether it be Cable or streaming service. It's not an independent stream. It just moves sports into a category under the TV app and shows in the guide.
