Channel Seven have been heavily criticised for their coverage of Manchester United's friendly against Perth Glory on Saturday at Optus Stadium.
Seven surprisingly won the rights to broadcast the match despite Fox Sports, SBS and Channel Ten usually televising the round ball game in Australia.
Deciding to show the match on Seven Two, instead of their main channel, the game was broadcast by Seven in standard definition with football fans far from impressed with the vision nor the commentary.
So Channel 7 paid money to televise one of the biggest football clubs touring Australia on their tv channels and they stick it on a SD channel so that they could show a Fast and Furious movie in HD... #MUFCvPER— Kieran L 🇦🇺 (@kieran_shaker) July 13, 2019
Watching @ManUtd v @PerthGloryFC on 7Two is a throwback to the glorious days of European football from the mid-Eighties. Shitty low-definition pictures and commentary that sounds like it’s come from a box-room...... #MUFCvPER #mufctour— Russ Gibbs (@RussGibbs10) July 13, 2019
#MUFCvPER Typical channel 7, putting it on the channel with the worst picture quality. I’ve seen better PQ on NPL streamed games.— Orange_Snow (@Orange_Snow_) July 13, 2019
Can Basheer & Lazaridis STFU and commentate on the actual game please. Now my eyes and ears are hurting #PERvMUN— MickeyT (@tanka_21) July 13, 2019

Thank god someone else said it. I can’t believe what I’ve been hearing for the first 20 mins of utter waffle... (‘Olle gunnar’ who calls him that? Plus all sorts of other weird bollocks..)— Gavin Latz (@GavinLatz) July 13, 2019
To make matters worse, the game itself struggled to hit any great heights in the first half with neither side able to open the scoring.
Red Devils star Paul Pogba was named on the bench for the match, with Romelu Lukaku missing completely through a minor injury.
