    Just downloaded it and watching my first video, I'm looking forward to the HD quality , on my 25" Acer HD Monitor (1,980 x 1,084 Pixels Resolution)
    I'm loving the calender too that shows everything going on ,and the Cheerleaders Spotlights.This is awesome!

    Re: Pats Launch 'desksite'

    I understand, but it's a good idea to go for the larger user base to see if it's a hit before making it avaliable to the platforms with the smaller footprint. I would have loved to see a Linux version !

    Re: Pats Launch 'desksite'

    The videos take time to get to your new application , actually it depends how fast is your connection , and how much space you allowed the app to use from your Hard drive.

    I am watching right now "Lights Shoot out" : Welker running in practice , teddy Bruschi in a shooting range ,and a lot of interviews.

    I had a problem with the audio playing, but not video. Maximizing the video caused it to play OK, and now it playes in windowed mode, also. Just FYI, might give that a shot.

    It was mentioned on the PFW In Progress show this afternoon that a Mac version would be out in about 4 months. Bad timing given how the season will be over...

    Agreed. I sent them some feedback about their Windows bias.

    After installation it immediately started downloading videos to my laptop's hard drive. I couldn't stop it! The only option is to limit the DL to 1gb. This is my computer and I'll decide what vids are going to be on it. It's OUTTA HERE!

    I have the oposite problem. The install went fine. I have 10gb alloted on my space, but I hardly have any videos. Patriots today is 2 days behind and I only have part 1. No press confrences from anyone. All I really have is the cheelerder swimsuit stuff, which is ok, but I would rather watch Christina Akra and the team news.

    Mine has a message after the successful install that says "Channels Arriving Shortly".

    It's been three hours now. I don't know what their definition of "shortly" is.

    I'm losing patience with this thing and will probably just delete the sucker.

    It's not a 'bias' to release a program first for the platform that dominates in market share- it's business 101. Will they still be platformists if an ubuntu-compatible version isn't released shortly? :p

    Did you enable the flash player install in the program? If not, that might be causing the holdup.

    I didn't block anything at all. I hit install any time I saw it.

    Re: Pats Launch 'desksite'

    Hopefully they get one done for you Mac folks. While I prefer Windows myself I can understand the appeal of both Macs and Linux. I'm considering
    putting Ubuntu on my main PC as an secondary OS down the road since I'd like to play around a bit with Linux.

    Also I sent an e-mail to the support site for the program. Hopefully they can let me know what is causing the issue on my end.
