Missing Nicam

I am grateful that ATV Home has decided (as it has done in previous years) to show live coverage of the NBA playoffs.

It is especially important now that ESPN is no longer with us.

However, the Nicam option seems to have been neglected.

I accept that the station has to cater for the local audience, but I am certain a lot of local basketball followers would have liked to tune in to expert coverage in English and familiarise themselves with some of the NBA terminology. Terms like 'pick-and-roll' and 'give-and-go' are already the norm among local players.

The always entertaining pre-game player introduction was also dubbed over for no reason at all in Sunday's game.

What is more, it is simply torture listening to the anchor's so-called expert analysis.

I am merely asking for an option. Please ATV, give us the Nicam option.
