June 18, 2011 6:26 pm Stephen Findlater says
@hocckkaayy – unfortunately we won’t be streaming from the Pakistan vs Ireland friendly match tonight. Twitter updates on twitter.com/hookhockey with the hashtag #irlvspak
June 18, 2011 6:46 pm vijay says
Do you have video of Ireland-India match palyed today.
If yes can you please send the link.
June 18, 2011 7:19 pm CV25 says
The streaming is very good, but the video does not show the full pitch, only the middle of the pitch and you cant see the goals
June 18, 2011 7:31 pm Stephen Findlater says
@CV25 – For this game, I don’t have a camera person so unfortunately the stream is redundant for the moment; follow it live at twitter.com/hookhockey
June 18, 2011 8:23 pm Asghar says

June 19, 2011 12:58 pm Sean says
Anybody else having problems with veiwing
June 19, 2011 1:05 pm Stephen Findlater says
@Sean – unfortunately there was system outage at our end which meant we have had to reset our settings and means we will not be able to broadcast the rest of this game. Normal service will resume for the Ireland. Sincere apologies, this is an experimental service so hoping this will be the only issue. Stephen
June 19, 2011 1:10 pm Sean says
Ok but otherwise AWSOME. Will other games of South Africa specifically be shown. Thanks again. Any idea what the current score is ?
June 19, 2011 1:39 pm Sean says

@Gilles – not in Amsterdam next week but my parents will be there. Might be in Lille the next week if you want a road trip
June 23, 2011 12:10 pm Joe says
Great coverage but I’m not sure about the constant switching of the camera angle + zoom in and out….feeling a bit dizzy.
Otherwise, good job!
June 23, 2011 12:18 pm roel says
the sounds gone again
June 23, 2011 12:44 pm Dino says
Trying to view this on my iPad … I assume it’s not comparable (as with any streaming that’s not YouTube or QuickTime …)?
June 23, 2011 1:40 pm GiveThemABreak says
@Sean Stop moaning and enjoy the hockey. The Hook are doing a fantastic job with streaming the tournaments, if you miss out on sound, suck it up and be grateful, otherwise you could be watching a blank screen with nothing.
Great job to all involved. Keep up the great work. Thoroughly enjoying watching the hockey WITH NO SOUND from where I am.
June 23, 2011 1:57 pm Great work Stevie says
@Sean, any word of you backing off on the sound malarky! It’s brilliant that these matches are being shown on live stream on here, and Stephen is doing great things for hockey by gaining coverage here to let us all watch the games. So give him a break! If you don’t like it then I suggest you take your own advice and GO HOME.
June 23, 2011 3:16 pm GiveThemABreak says
Well said @Great work Stevie !!!
June 23, 2011 3:19 pm Raman says
Hi Steve I am not able to download the match..sometime it shows the clock…some time just a pic…we can hear the sounds of the whistles…but not the video…can u guide
June 23, 2011 3:47 pm AG says
Steve runs this site for free, in his spare time. He has a day job to go to on top of this. That he’s been dedicated and innovative enough to produce a stream for these tournaments – having never tried this before – is a feat in itself. You don’t see any streams on the IHA or FIH sites do you?
I realise I’m biased as I run a similar site to this but it really pisses me off when a superb service such as The Hook is provided for nothing and all some people can do is complain. Fair play to the two lads above for replying in kind too.
June 23, 2011 4:23 pm Khurram says
I am from pakistan and always follow green shirts. I have never seen such a fantastic streaming of Live hockey matches.
Many congrats for this great work.
I dont know when FIH will understand this fact that in this modern world if you want to make any sports popular , you have to put it on media like Internet and TV.
Unfortunately FIH does not understand this fact!!
They should sponsor such websites…It is their responsibility in my point of view
June 23, 2011 4:57 pm MH says
Good luck Michelle K. Club RU are rooting for you guys.
June 23, 2011 6:00 pm md says
you can watch it on an ipad if you download the web browser iswifter which plays flash!
June 23, 2011 6:55 pm KE says
Wow! I am so impressed with the quality of video you guys are streaming. I feel like I was at the game without leaving the comfort of my own home (States). I wish ALL major events and University games were streamed like this. Then, maybe, people would follow the sport of hockey and specific players. Only suggestion, I would love a shot of the time clock every now and then. With that said, you guys are genius and are revolutionizing the sport internationally. Maybe others will follow. Let’s hope.
June 23, 2011 8:22 pm Haris says

What was the China-France score? I could see no live streaming at the time mentioned.
June 24, 2011 2:08 pm Nadir says
i could listen to the pitch audio fine. there is no running commentary from my understanding. Checking the setting for flash player might help you resolve this issue. cheers mate
Nadir – Sydney

Hi! Is you net down??
June 24, 2011 7:19 pm AG says
Steve is away tonight due to a personal commitment; I’m not sure of the full details but it seems the inclement weather at UCD has caused the live stream to go down.
