Do you still watch the replay match from TV?

I like watching the live match from TV and I don't like watching the replay program in another time. Because I already know the result by any means, even if I haven't watched the match yet. But it seems it's meaningless to watch the process as I already know the result.

I like the suspense you have when you don;t know who will win.That is why I avoid the news on t.v. or the paper.Luckily I haven't been told the result of anything I wanted to see and I have seen most events I wanted live. Live, can you believe it? Thanks to the scheduling gymnastics and swimming in the morning in China, it is either prime time or latenight here in the States.

Oops. I forgot to say that I have seen matches or ganes where I knew who won. I had to see How they won or why.Usually there was a call everyone was talking about so I had to see it for myself.

In fact I look forward to seeing the women volleyball match between USA and Brazil. Now I am not sure whether the time will be suitable for me to watch it. Do you know that the coach was from China? She was a very famous Chinese volleyball player in 80s.

Yes I know. During the telecast of The Games, NBC told me.It was so great that the Chinese fans gave her a warm welcome even though she is the U.S. coach.It is so great that she got the chance to come home.Women's volleyball airs here on late Friday Night at 12:35-2:00 so that would make it Saturday afternoon.That is for the Bronze medal. The gold match will air here sometime between 10am and 6pm , that would be late night Saturday 10pm and 6am. Yikes!I hope that helps

It is more exciting to watch living broadcast.as you say,it seems meaningless to watch the replay.At the Olympic time,some games will live at the same time.so i can watch all my favorite games at one time.I will choose to watch the replay the other day.I still remember,one night,the final dive of women's diving synchronized,men's badminton singles,and gymnastics broadcast live at the same time.I can watch all of them at the same time.so i choose some to watch the next morning replay.I have no choice.

That is a very difficult choice, isn't it?

hi my friend,me too prefer the live game. Take Olympic games as an example,we are lucky to enjoy the live games this time coz it's held in Beijing.but for most times,we have to stay up if we want to watch the live games due to the time zone difference. I think most people have such experence having to stay up for the live played Olympic games.

You are right. But anyway it's fair. Perhaps this time you have to stay up to watch it, but next time it may be my turn

it depends... i dont like watching events. I like it more to sleep. But when it comes to Filipino fights and events, of course I watch. When i haven't watched the program yet, then more likely i will watch the reply. This happen during the fights of Manny Pacquiao. Although we know that he already win, we would still watch the replay to see how he fight.

But sometimes it's hard for you not to know the result

I only watch the reply of the gymnastics, artistic gymnastics, and synchronize swimming... but for the rest i don't... these are the three competitions that i love to watch... i can never get tired of how the athletes execute their exercises with precision...

If possible, I want to watch all Olympic matches.

people watch it even if they know the results and i have to say it is not pointless because it's how the points were made blow by blow and how the other one won and the other lost. just like any other sports, it's not the winning that matters , it's how you played the game. now, it is the same as your old dvd's which you want to watch over again even when you know what's going to happen.

No.. i don't watch the replay of the matches, but only the highlights, i see..It does not incite any interest in watching a match that had already gone in to the record books. But on some cases like " Cricket classics" i mean the matches that were played some where in 1950's and 1960's if i come across i prefer to watch them.. But that is a case of rarity.

Cricket is really popular in India. But it's not a common sports here.

cricket - cricket matches from around the world
It depends ..If it is a holiday or it is a day n night.., I watch live. And if it is a working day, and if the match was interesting, then I watch highlight, or repeat telecast, I watched almost all matches of IPL, as the time was suitable for me...

With the olympics I have had to watch the replay. I dont think the time difference allows them to show all events live. I dont like watching something to which I already know the outcome. Although I have no patience so I probably would try to find out the outcome even if I havent got to watch it yet. dl

I like watching good movies again and again but I won't feel tired. As to the reply match like Olympics, I am not so interested in watching it since I know the result.
