Tried to watch on computer last year with sooooo many pauses I had to turn off. Very aggravating!! Hope they are perfecting it!!
Has there been a recent change in camera director? We want fewer close-ups, more medium/long shots, to show group choreography.
What time do you expect the tv coverage of the STRING BANDS to begin?
