A form of western force ears if you will! I think a lot would use this app if it was around-I wish my technical prowess was good enough to develop it myself.
    It's technically feasible but not straight forward. Firstly it would require an audio stream (which would mean getting the Force powers-that-be to agree). Then the delivery: ideally you would want broadcast rather than individual streams (which would compete for bandwidth and likely introduce delays that make the sound out of sync with the play). It would be a lot more straightforward in a stadium like Optus which provides Wifi, and so the audio could be broadcast from a local server. NIB, not sure what the wifi situation is.

    So, doable but much easier to re-enable the Rugby Ears.

    Sports Ears are designed to only work in the stadium, so you'd need to get that captured and re-streamed. Of course, then there are legal issues if its not the approved broadcaster doing it. If the game is on Ch 7, somewhat easier but whichever broadcaster is doing the video will sue someone not authorised to broadcast (loss of advertising income, etc)

    I did ask about the Sports Ears via email, the answer was not this year but hopefully next.

    Went on sports program on 6PR tonight telling them I am excited that the Force are back and here Friday night. Hehe they said Ollie stole their interview. They are going to try and get the coach Tim on later in the week. I urge others if they can to keep it fresh in peopleís minds. Langdon was stitched up by Hasleby thinking it was Michael rather than Ian. If we donít hop on and let them know we care they wonít care.

    Is there a chance FTA may be on a channel ten, one or eleven? Maybe a delayed telecast?

    It was only Adam Thompson, not Chocolate Starfish. He also wrote many a song for Pseudo Echo.
