  • Anyone see the blurb in the 'ER forum about this? The "Samsung" WSL live streams don't work on most portable SAMSUNG devices. Since Android drives Samsung devices, you would think they would check whether their feeds would actually WORK on them. Marketing FAIL.

    Yeah, guess what I noticed too? It won't stream on a Samsung Smart TV, so I have to pull it up on my computer, then stream my computer to the TV, through my Apple TV. I'm not sure Samsung has very much power in that relationship.

  • I would think that if Samsung is spending the amount of money to get THAT many people onto their ad books, they would want to be damn well sure to REACH those people, especially those with their own branded devices. Having and error come up that tells you to use an iPhone or something to watch the streams is a big blunder. I have an inkling that the WSL will be working with Samsung and Google(Android) at breakneck speed to correct this and have a new format setup before the next contest that will be available to their devices, along with iPhones, LG's and others.

    Uh, they don't NEED to reach the Samsung users.   ::) ::) ::)

  • Listen to this if you want a real view into viewership numbers...Seems like the WSL pulled away from the default Youtube player because it actually showed the number of people watching the live streams, interesting:
