This was a response a fan received from Customer Service regarding the Preliminary Final telecast.  The feed started an hour too early and cut off minutes before the end of the match.

This was a review of another match:

"OMNISPORT.TV could be the savior for some of us. First up the site reminded me of the old Fox Soccer Channel we used to get our fix on. ALOT of soccer.
 
So I read the site and it looked good. AFL recommended it to us, so I was hoping this would not be a rip off. And it wasn't. To play it safe I followed all directions. Got an account. checked my game time...... everything was GMT, so I really had to work on that. I knew the game was 3:30am Salt Lake time and the directions on the site asked that you book the game you want at least 30 minutes before the scheduled start. So I did exactly, book the game before I went out to dinner with the Mrs and kids.
 
Now I must say at this point that we do not get the higher speed offer by our IP, so I thought I may have a few streaming problems. So I woke at about 2:45am, enough time to prepare an EARLY breakfast. Made it to the PC at 3:00am, signed on to OMNISPORT.TV and got my note that the game was ready. The feed was from Channel 10, and the picture was very good quality. In fact I thought I got more than what I bargained for. You do not get ANY COMMERCIALS at all. So when channle 10 went to a commercial, we got to hear and see what was happening "off air' as they prepared for the next segment. There were some buffering problems, but NOT SERIOUS, and I would definitely say the fact I have the slower speed from my IP, I thought the feed was great. I enjoyed the game, and thought this was a real good option for us.
 
ONE DOWN SIDE, and I believe a little communication could help this. For every event they have a set time. And they STICK TO IT. So with about 5 minutes of game time left, I lost the picture, and the words "This event is over" came onto the screen.  I feel with the right speed connection this would be good and a little communication to Omnisport we could perhaps get them to lengthen the time allow.
 
If a few of us footy fans really got behind this I believe it could be a hit.... I would definitely pay to see my CATS every week
