A league official tells me Stadium is now available on Apple TV, and that "Roku is their next priority in terms of connected TV launches."

No specific indication of when that will happen, but I was assured Stadium is "working to be up and running on Roku and other platforms as soon as possible."

While I will miss seeing football games on the big screen for now, I'm glad we're still a few months from basketball season.

Watching on computer, I found the Stadium video feed was high quality. Did others have the same impression? I'm hopeful that, after the delay, the Roku/big screen experience will be better than before.

Video quality was high for me but I lost audio frequently coming out of commercial breaks. May have been because I had it up on the big screen through my HDMI cable but I didn't have that problem before with PLN

I had some of that too. It would seem to go on sort of " auto mute." Also, every time there was a break, the picture mode would transfer out of full screen. Had tha same problem watching PLN via my smart tv web browser. Stadium is a merger of three or four different companies that have pooled their various broadcast rights, but seems to have a lot of right hand/ left hand stuff going on in the early going.

Yes, the video quality was much better than the old PLN. That is a welcome change.

Perhaps it is me, I have problems watching Bucknell games this season on the new feed. I liked the Campus Insiders in past years, that said, last night went to Wm and Mary site and it was so easy to access the game, I don't understand why our stuff isn't done like this. I was viewing the games in around 15 seconds, with several cliks on the links.

I agree 100%. Stadium is a loser!

Agree about Stadium. As many know, it is the result of a merger between Campus Insiders and American Sports Network (ASN). Seems like they managed to take the worst from each of the predecessors.

Per a league official, the Stadium channel is now operational on Roku. I look forward to taking it for a test drive.

Here is a strange one: When accessing PLTV on Stadium via my Android cell phone, the video is clear but, but the audio is always VERY muffled. The other day, I tried my iPad, and the audio was nice and loud. I have checked all settings on my Galaxy S8+, but cannot find anyway to adjust for this. Any ideas?

First, make sure it is a problem w/ everything you watch on Stadium, as opposed to one specific stream. Assuming you already have determined that the audio sucks on whatever stadium event you watch, try accessing with another android phone if you can. That will tell you if the problem is just w/your phone or is perhaps a Stadium problem. Lastly, watch on your iPad, or get an iPhone.

Btw Roku app appears to be one of the few things Stadium got right.

Really impressed with the Stadium Roku App. Great picture/audio quality and zero drop-outs. So nice to have that rather than relying on my tablet.

Agree with that assessment of the Roku app. Easy to use as well.

First home game I have not had to watch on my phone. Add me to the fans of the Roku channel.
Ray Bucknell!
