Watching Shrimps from afar

So, exiled Shrimps. How's this new online streaming thing going? Is it worth the cost? Thinking of signing up from Thailand.

It's getting good reviews so far...

Only issue is that the audio & video are not always in synch, but easily fixed by having the video & audio in separate tabs, then 'pause' whichever is ahead, until the other catches up.

Works great, as Keith says, tinker a bit to sync the Commentary and picture.

Speaking for myself, I'm having a ball with it. The image is crisp and the video performance is better than other streaming services I've paid for. The commentary alone was worth it for me. The only downside; so far, there is no commentary on the video stream. You need to start each separately and one is usually a few seconds ahead or behind. It's not a big deal, you just pause the video for X seconds until it catches up. 8/10 for me.
@ShrimpsOfCanada for my Morecambe centric comments.
@DrRetro for Toronto FC, general Canadian commentary and profanity about the same.

Still can't get over the prospect of being to be able to watch live Shrimps games from out here. Will have to check it out. Anyone got a link?
