Olympic TV coverage

Enjoying all the ads as usual, guess they have to pay the bills. But surely it's possible for 7 to put out a daily schedule of what will be shown on the 3 channels? Like others I had to take the punt of recording 2 channels and while it would have been nice to get the whole Boomers game I was happy to see the second half. I understand there's a lot of sports to cover. At some stage the channel roulette will screw up for sure.
Is it that 7 don't want us to know so the non Telstra customers have to buy their app to see a replay?

The replays are free on the app.

Has anyone had success skipping forward on replays via the app on a mobile device?

Tried watching team USA game today but couldn't skip forward.

What medium were you watching it on?

I'm using an iphone 6 plus. Not having much luck dragging it.

I drag it and then nothing happens. And then if something does happen it cuts to the last 30 seconds of the game.

Pros and cons of 7's app:
In the boomers game, the commentary was out of sync with the picture. However, you're able to switch off the commentary and just watch with the sound effects. Brilliant! You can hear more of whats being said on court and also what the coaches are yelling from the sidelines. Should be a feature of more sports broadcasts

How did you switch the commentary off?

Not tooo bad. Unusual to show different things over 3 or 4 TV channels. (Some show the same thing}
Saw half Boomers and half Opals games on TV ch73 7pm-9pm and some highlites with Gaze on tv ch 7 at approximately 9pm. Pretty good.
(Plenty replays of our first medals and plenty of ads)

Saw the Liz Cambeige spectacular , last nite, ch7.
At London , she looked tall and slim compared to now.
When Burton travelled , Liz just laughed , and I DOO feel sorry for Burton being out there for so long , out of her depth . It's not her own choice . More or less pushed into it .It's pretty straining and unhealthy. Feel sorry for the other players as well....
