    Channel 5 is the most shocking catch up service, reminds me of somebody filming the highlights from their tv

    Hey does anyone know what channel this commentary is of? I mean channel 5 doesn't show the cricket so is this taken from sky sports? or from BBC TMS? or do these guys do the commentary exclusively for only one-hour's worth for channel five highlights? Thanks.

    Thanks Robin. Your post made me laugh. Right from the "Your all idiots" genius remark. Anyway it's finally uploaded now.

    Robin, they have to upload about 400Mb to their own servers. I can do that over my ADSL connection in under an hour. C5 have a way faster internet connection than me. C5's highlights are excellent, but they do need to pull their fingers out when it comes to getting them online in a timely fashion. As others have pointed out, the other networks don't have this problem.

    Your all idiots, why can't any of you understand the logistics involved in what channel 5 do! Have any of you ever tried to upload a video to facebook or youtube or even dropbox, it takes ages, thus channel 5 have exactly the same issue in trying to upload this to the web. Seriously, it is the best highlights show around and if you can't wait for it without whining and complaining then go to bed or watch the terrible highlights posted by idiots. It winds me up that you lot sit here bad mouthing 5 every day because it takes a bit of time to get posted, seriously you need to use the small amount of grey matter between your ears and be a bit more patient. I salute you Channel 5 for the fantastic highlights you provide every day and if I have to wait to see them then I am happy to do so. If I have to go to bed I can simply watch them tomorrow, not rocket science is it!!

    Why did it take several attempts for registration to be accepted only to find experience no cricket available? Can competition rules be displayed on website? Sincerely Headingley.

    Agree entirely. Missed the scheduled showing of the highlights and no joy through Catch Up or on line. Rubbish - just want some cricket please!

    Hopeless. Why can't we catch up with the highlights before the next days play starts. BBC, ITV and Channel 4 can manage it. If Channel 5 can't, give up now.
