Default World Cup closing ceremony

Well done, SuperSport. Your schedule tells us we'll see the closing ceremony, your presenters say it's coming up, and guess what: we get only the end of it, because you're showing adverts for some tawdry local businesses, instead of the event the WORLD wants to watch!

Thank you Pick 'n Pay, among other adevrtisers, sponsors of MISSING what we want to watch!

I saw that too, I ended up switching to SABC 1 because the adverts just continued, ended up missing the first part of the closing ceremony, how unreliable!

Yep ... that was really bad! SABC1 got it right, not neither 203 nor 171 crossed in time.

Thanks for replaying the beginning at the end in analogue stereo, at least we saw it, sounded really bad compared to 5.1 of the live broadcast. Heads need walk out the door for this and public acknowledgment and an apology!

SABC was much better on the World Cup , not so many ads and keeping the picture at the game , who want to watch the panel talking , when at the end of the games there are interviews , and Supersport just cut back to the studio , and they tell the same story over and over again for 64 games.

As much I appreciate the chatter about the World Cup, the purpose of the thread is to highlight SS incompetence and missing the first minute of the closing ceremony.

Yes moved to the correct post sorry G

Was unaware of this as most were watching on SABC 1. Only noticed the differences when the recordings on the SD - SABC 1 and on the HD - HD channel were viewed again after the game while the three - hour long post mortem was held after the game between the Spain and Holland supporters!
