Differences Between Live Football Coverage in Spain and Indonesia

Having watched many live coverages of EPL football matches on local television stations in Spain, I can see some differences in the way the Indonesian and Spanish show the game.

The differences are as follow:

1. Indonesia
Pre-game review: Starts 15-30 minutes before the game. At least 1 commentator is present apart from one TV presenter. The so called commentator may be a sport journalist, an ex player or anyone who deemed "knows" about football. It is considered normal if they talk for one minute and then there are some ads for about 5 minutes, then the commentators talk again for another minute, again followed by advertisements for 5 minutes.

In-game comments: Usually in English, in other words the original in-game comments from the broadcaster.

Post-game review: Usually the commentator gives his review of what went wrong, what should have been done, etc. A minute talk normally will be followed by 5 minutes of advertisement, which is just like during the pre-game review. Ends about 10 minutes after the game.

2. Spain
Pre-game review: none but advertisements run for about 10 minutes, until the game starts.

In-game comments: 2 persons, one TV presenter who also reports the game and another commentator who reviews the tactical side of the game.

Post-game: again advertisements run for about 10 minutes.
