    Also, why is it that football, a miserable sport that we are sh!t at gets terristrial coverage every now and then, but magistic cricket, where we are #1 gets this sort of treatment - i say again, stick with TMS.

    Much better to stick with TMS. Totally agree with comments that Cricket belongs with the BBC - they'd treat us, the fans with respect because we, the licence payers are their primary concern, unlike the corporates at 5. Rubbish show C5 - must improve or Cricket will suffer.

    This is rubbish! I've been trying to watch this for an hour now and have only got through the first 5 minutes. Interestingly, the advertisements seem to work fine. You really do have to be a die-hard fine or wealthy enough to mortgage your house to pay for sky, to watch cricket nowadays. CRAP!

    The throughput sucks too. So slow it's unwatchable. Tried IE, Chrome and Firefox - all have the same problem, yet iPlayer is fine. What are they using, accoustic couplers?

    It would be nice if moving the slider at the bottom actually worked, rather than completely breaking it. I had to reset my internet connection and wanted to resume where I'd left off,but it actually skipped forward, and won't skip back.

    Forget about watching the highlights when the stupid C5 dictate, just listen to the cricket on TMS. Like many others I've been conned into thinking I can watch it at a time that suits after play has finished, but no I have to wait until the next day when the the next days play is in progress or done. Waste of time here.

    Do you think anyone at Channel 5 reads these comments? Lat year I remember loads of comments about the terrible time the highlights start and the frustrating fact the the on demand highlights aren't on until the following day. Yet nothing happens. A whole generation of cricket is fans is going to be lost because it's just so difficult to watch the great game now. I don't think anyone cares, as long as the money keeps rolling in...

    Im enjoying Simon Hughes' analysis. Its much better than Sky's third man stuff. Cricket is so much about tactics and technique, especially so Test cricket, and I like the time out they give to discuss the finer points of what the players are doing. It makes you think about the game more, and for me, really allows me to enjoy it more.

    And for the bored and impatient I can highly recommend this week's News Quiz. OK it's not cricket, but it's more fun than watching this page... and I also think I might annoy C5 a bit by posting links to other broadcaster's content on their website, which is slightly satisfying... http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/b01hxtmw

    I missed the show and forgot to record, but I've managed to avoid the scores all day. Came online at 8.05pm, and it wasn't on...tried 8.30pm, 10pm, 11pm and now 12.30am and it still hasn't been made available for viewing. Very disappointed as I was at least hoping to catch up prior to going to bed. Oh well.

    You're all missing the point - C5 is a commercial business, but you and I are not the customer, so they don't give a flying monkeys what we think. The advertisers are the customer. I vaguely recall that C5 was supposed to have some kind of civic role, based on it getting a franchise for broadcasting - but now they've switched off analogue, that means nothing. Seriously, what do you expect from a TV channel operated by the publishers of Asian Babes..?

    I bet C5 don't even look at this but everyone on here has a fair point. Its probably the most popular show on channel 5 and it ain't hard to upload

    Channel 5 is a service industry. You are noy providing the service you advertise. In any other buisness would you survive?

    The reason they don't specify a time is that they want you to keep checking back so they can get more hits for their website.

    i feel channel 5 should give some indication on when the program is due to be released on demand 5. It would save us wasting all our time coming back on to the website and would stop all of these comments about how the service is 'rubbish'. You are providing a good service as it is not the quality of how your broadcasting, or in fact how long it may take in order to get the show on demand 5; but instead people are most annoyed about being left in the dark about when they will be able to view the desired program. Please sort it channel 5.

    Dear Channel 5 How long does it actually take to upload highlights? Is there any reason why, for example the highlights of the days play cant be uploaded whilst the show airs live and be set to become available at 8:01pm when the live show finishes? Why am I still waiting at gone half past 11? Are you short of staff? Last I heard there were 2.65million unemployed in the UK (not to mention the rest of the EU) and I'm sure you could find at least 1 capable of uploading a video to a website. Also while I'm here, the theme music you use for for Cricket on 5 is nothing less than a disgrace to humanity. Please replace it immediately.

    Indian web sites stream a lot of thier matches live for free and we cant even get one hour of previously broadcast cricket highlights and the media have the nerve to complain when internet users use "alternative " ways to watch previously broadcast items

    Been waiting all evening after a long week away and the television being hogged at highlight time. Why aren't they here at 20:00?? Also, why aren't they on Demand5 on Internet-connected TV's? "Your wish is our Demand"... hmm... And hands up who thinks poker is a sport...anyone? Thought not.

    I think the deal C5 has only allows them to show highlights from 11pm so there is nothing they can do about that but why don't they make sure that they have them absolutely ready to go at 10.59pm? Last year they sometimes weren't available until 11am the next morning. Please just sort it out. It is the only thing I watch on C5. Every day there is 50 comments about this. We just want to see the cricket.

    Exactly the same service standard as last summer. Towards midnight now and still no cricket from Channel 5liars. All winter to sort it out and mollify its livid audience, but no improvement.....not even a note to tell us what time C5liars will be bothered to let us watch. Should have licence terminated and ECB should retain rights to broadcast over the web - we have to suffer adverts with C5liars anyway, so ECB could fund it the same way.

    it is very very easy to find highlights online through other overseas providers. Shame I have to resort to that rather than watch on Demand5. If It's just not cricket. If GIles Clark et al are worried about illegal streaming they should probably put pressure on demand5 to show highlights promptly.

    Whole point of highlights is to allow people who couldnt sit down and watch the action to catch up, BEFORE THE NEXT DAYS PLAY.This has really cheesed me off. Got in, made a cuppa thinking 'I'll watch the highlights' but NOOO there not even up yet?! Channel 5, you might aswell give away the rights to the test highlights now as nobody wants you to have them.

    What an absolute shambles. This is a very poor service and the points raised need to be answered. Having advertised every programme that this service is available, thereby wasting time for showing actual cricket, to find it not available is a joke. And not a funny one.

    I will not subscribe to Sky on principle - because Murdoch is a cancer on our body politic - please note ECB. Therefore I must rely on Channel 5's highlights, but why are they not available on 5OD? Presumably related to Murdoch's deal with ECB?

    What everyone else has already said! Just got back from a long day looking forward to the highlights which my daughter failed to record for me. Never mind says I, Mark Nicholas has promised me that this is on the web. Oh no it isn't, or at least not yet. What a shambles.

    It's been an awful journey back home on the tube from Central London in swealtering heat during rush hour on a packed train...I have showered and eaten dinner and now just want to relax and watch the cricket which is the ultimate form of relaxation...yet you Channel5 decide to put the highlights on tv at 7pm when most adults have probably just got home let alone changed or had something to eat...you should have news at 8pm for 10 mins...then weather at 8.10 and cricket should start at 8.15pm for a 45min show...your timings at present are nonsensical...and now I sit here waiting for highlights package which for some mind boggling reason you upload after midnight so we watch yesterday's play the day after...and yet Giles Clarke from the ECB has the nerve to say 'illegal streaming' is a threat to world cricket...more like a threat to your wage packet from SKY SPORTS you greedy pig.

    Where are the highlights then? Come on the ECB if you don't find someone to show 40 measly mins of highlights each night then give it back,to the BBC or you're going to find yourself without an audience soon. Having to fight to watch England play cricket is not any fun.

    'Instead of saying "not currently available", why not say what we need to know, that it will be available at such and such a time after transmission?' Spot on. I can appreciate there may be contractual issues as to when you can show it, but there can't be contractual reasons that you can't TELL people when you can show it!

    Channel 5 need to get their act together. BBC and Channel 4 have their programs available not 5 mins after finishing on air yet channel 5 take hours. It's false advertising on the TV saying go to the website and you can watch it now for 7 days when you can't! Sort it out Channel 5 or sell the highlights to someone who knows what they are doing.

    This is a great feature which I ddin't know about until this series, having been overseas for many a long year. Two carping comments on an otherwise fantastic feature: firstly, why can I see the last day's play but not the first? It is out of line with the assertion that each of these days' summaries are available for 7 days after play. It's not 7 days since this test started so is it a glitch or what? Secondly, why no ads? They are there for the live transmission. I usually don't watch ads (or tv) so the missus likes to point out her favourite ads to me (and I must say that English ads are so much better than elsewhere - still. It would avoid whinging. Bizzarre, I know but... surely your advertisers want to reach your audience online as well as live? Carping comments, as I said. But overall: excellent.
