Turner’s “MMOD” Feed Delivers On iPad, Has Its Hiccups On iPhone
Published March 18, 2011
iWITNESS ACCOUNT: In Houston, David Barron writes, "March Madness on Demand worked smoothly for me on Comcast's broadband network, although I'm not crazy about the fact that the screen goes dark during commercials and you can't mute the sound or change to another game. The MMOD mobile application took forever to load on the iPhone but worked well (albeit 40 seconds behind the TV picture) once it loaded" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 3/18). CNET.com's Rick Broida noted the MMOD app works for iPads, iPods and iPhones and wrote, "If you like college basketball, you need this app, plain and simple. It's free, and it's fantastic" (CNET.com, 3/17). On Twitter, Sports media blogger Ken Fang wrote, “I love the March Madness on Demand app giving me alerts when a game is close. On the web, ‘Crunch Time’ is under the score of a close game." But GMR Marketing Dir of Sports Strategy Jonathan Norman wrote, "Not liking how @MarchMadness On Demand video lags behind scoreboard at top of app. Score tells final outcome before video. Fail" (TWITTER.com, 3/17).
