Same, no link yet - pretty annoying as I didn't watch on Sunday because I thought I'd do it one night this week or maybe at the coming weekend. Had time last night to catch the bits I wanted but no link...!

I’ve done the exact same thing.... waiting for the link as I couldn’t do Sunday 

edit: still not received my link yet

To me that reads like they're very quick to pin the tech issues on another company.

They were probably using another service to authenticate the codes and that fell over. I agree its their responsibility and they shouldn't be shirking it, and should have got a better supplier. But that logic can be applied equally to Glastonbury themselves surely - they're the people that folk bought the product from, they also shouldn't just shift responsibility to their supplier. 

The BBC showing - a Director's Cut doesn't have to be longer and there are plenty of examples of shorter versions. I'd imagine someone will be cutting together a circa 2 hour film version of it, as opposed to the longer live stream "event".

Already watched about half of it again this morning and am appreciating it even more after a second viewing.  It really is that good!

I really hope they eventually release a full quality, unedited version to keep.

I wander if the weather had anything to do with not seeing the flags!! I would imagine many were hand painted and handmade!! It was piddling down and blowing a gale here most of the week!! So were likely to have got ruined!! Hopefully they will be used again at a different time maybe next year in the sun!!!

Yeah I agree - I think failures all round: Glastonbury, Driift and third party supplier. But for me the solution provided has been adequate and they've offered refunds so not much more needed now in my eyes.

I was the same. Watching it for a second time on Sunday did make us appreciate it even more , especially Damon’s set.  Got the linke mail so will have another watch later. I reckon we will see bits of it sooner or later on tv documentaries etc but it would be nice to get a hq full version.

Absolutely depends on your parameters. For me, a truly great singer isn't about technical skill, it's the ability to provoke an emotion in me, the same way that a very talented hyper-realistic pencil artist doesn't evoke the same feelings as a less technically proficient artist that absolutely fucking moves me.

All the artists I love, all the artists that have properly grabbed me by the guts and wrung some emotion out of me, none of them are technically 'excellent' singers, whatever that means. Give me yer Bob Dylans, yer Patti Smiths, yer Robrt Wyatts. You want technical excellence, watch the X-factor with their note perfect warbling.
