      Audio Options for Premiership Broadcasts

      Like most people, some football commentators/summarisers get on my nerves and I've always appreciated the chance to choose the audio option "crowd" via the red button menu (Sky + box).

      This season the menu's changed and I can't find audio options anywhere.

      I've tried self help including ringing Sky but the lady didn't know what audio options are.

      Is anyone else having difficult in finding the audio option?

      I can hardly hear the commentators over the crowd noise anyway. It sounds to me as though they are holding the microphone about a foot away from their mouths.
      If the match is on Radio 5 Live I turn the sound off the tv and listen to the radio commentary whilst watching the tele.

      It's some media types who've decided we should all be 'immersed' in the 'experience'. So the crowd is given a prominent position and the commentators are reduced in volume. In some cases this is actually preferable! However I simply reduce the volume of my TV so the crowd noise is at an acceptable level and it's impossible to hear the commentators. Note to Sky - why bother with expensive commentators (that no one can hear), save yourself the money and instead reduce the Sky Sports price.
