I was pleased that the game was streamed. At first I had a few problems getting it to work with computer linked to TV monitor. Overall I rated the stream as a 7 out of 10. The video was good at times and mediocre sometimes. The announcer really needed someone to pair with him for color commentary.

Watched game on my phone. No quality issues.
Initially, could only get the other game.
Played around and got a link to RB.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

It was fine on laptop but it was not fine on other platforms. Plus announcer thinks Gio plays in Toronto still.

iphone and ipad video quality were good for me. yahoo app on roku just kept putting out an error code and did not work at all. computer hooked up to a tv with hdmi cable was pretty good quality but not great. no freezing or crashes for entire game.

It was fine watching on my laptop but not having the ability to watch from an app on my fire tv in 2019 is trash.

Streamed it on my phone and the feed was pretty flawless for me throughout. Clear picture, didn't get choppy or buffer a single time. I was pleasantly surprised.

Used Chrome browser on my laptop via wifi and fizzled out way too frequently.  

When working the video quality was lovely.

I streamed on my laptop hooked to my tv and thought the quality was good...my only gripe was the camera angle...it was difficult to see what was happening on the far end of the field and I felt like the depth perception was tough to get used to

Yahoo stream didn't work that well on my laptop and I was using Chrome. Internet speed is not an issue at my house. So I ended up streaming the game on my phone on the Univision Deportes app. Excellent video quality....only issue was the commentary. As someone mentioned, one of their analysts keeped going on and on about the Kaku to America transfer drama making it seem like RedBull is at fault. The other commentator basically was like "Kaku acted out dramatically" not knowing that the real culprit was his Agent Tweeting away as if he were the current President in Tweet.

I used 4 different methods to watch the game. Some worked, some didn't.

1) Stream through browser on Xbox. If it connected correctly, it worked well for a few minutes and then would buffer every 45 seconds. Bailed on that.

2) Chromecast full tab from computer - same issue

3) Stream on the computer - worked well, but quality faded in and out

4) Stream on the Yahoo app - worked perfectly and with high quality, but god help me if I have to watch an entire match on my phone.

I had the same error code issue with Roku. I then hooked my desktop up to the TV and the stream quality was OK.

I was watching on yahoo sports on chrome. No issues at all, stream was perfect. Announcer wasnt the best ever, but it was definitely a step above what Im used to for CCL streams.

I also had the same issue with Roku, then tried the yahoo app on two different phones and it was horrible, like watching the game in slow motion. Gave up on that and then tried to go directly to the mobile website but it would only show the Marathon vs Santos game with no option to choose another game.

Finally had to try a few different phone browsers and got it to work after making the phones browser switch to desktop mode. I really don't enjoy watching games on my phone.

It's not my wifi or my phone so it was a complete disaster for me and ruined the first half of the game.

I really hope we aren't on there again for away games. Hopefully we are on Univision and I can sync up the English audio from the app and watch that way.

I used silk on my fire tv... It was decent.. It's ashame these matches aren't at least on MSG... They should be nationally televised or at least on ESPN+
I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.
