    It's my hope that eventually we may be able to watch the events we want in their entirety, preferably without clueless commentators.  Not just running; I've been plenty frustrated with Olympics coverage, fencing, and others.

     

    I hope Apple has competition in this area, too.

    Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

      I had always wondered, when I was a little kid (in the 1960s, sad to say), what would it be like if they broadcast a football game (or whatever) with NO commentators.

       

      Then, in the early 1980s, they actually did it for a foot ball game.  Most people said they didn't like it.

       

      It was a little weird.

       

      Of course, what you need is commentators, but not clueless commentators.

        I couldn't watch sports without the commentators.  A good commentator reveals far more about the plays and the players than I could ever know on my own.  I agree that clueless commentators are annoying (I don't really need to hear "Oh wow, look at that, can you believe it!" 8 times a minute).
