‘Catch Up‘ for TEN Cricket, essentially a server-side DVR capability that will go back 30-days became available on Skybox TV last Sunday.
I have, as was the case when I had cricket with DISH, been watching cricket every night from 10:00 to 10:45 pm — before coming up to do another 2 hours of work. All this week I used ‘Catch Up’ to watch the 2013 West Indies v. Pakistan ODI series. Great series. 3rd ODI was a nail-biter. Good cricket. Amazing bowling. Some memorable batting performances. The new tall West Indian bowler, Jason Holder, who can also hit, appears to be a GREAT FIND. Joy to watch him bowl. Reminds me of the greats from the 1970s and 1980s. And then Pakistan has the 7′ Irfan.
I wasn’t sure about ‘Catch Up’ since I had never used it. I like it. Saves me having to record the matches. They are there … on the menu … and you just select them. The 30-day window could be a problem. Maybe I could get them to extend it, at least for ‘TEN’, to maybe 90 days. That would work.
Quality has been GOOD. Actually GREAT. No delays, no jitter, no breakup of the video. Actually it is better than what I was getting on DISH. Yes, one program was only 1/2 recorded, 57 minutes out of 2 hours. But, I think that was an initial glitch. Yes, I have told them about it and they promised to look into it.
So, I am a very happy camper.
Had another call today from somebody who wants a box. Here is THE LINK.
