365SportTV window position



The 365SportTV app for Mac leaves a great deal to be desired. As anyone who’s used it has no doubt discovered, basic functionality is missing. Whoever knocked up the Mac version of the app for them has clearly never used Xcode before…

Of the many frustrations with this app, the only one I’ve been able to solve without completely re-writing it (365SportTV people: I’d be happy to give you a kind price…;) ) is moving the position of the window. That’s good because it is particularly annoying if you’re watching it on a large external monitor and the image is stuck where it doesn’t make best use of your screen.

To move the window, launch the AppleScript Editor (just type Apples in Spotlight or Launchpad) and paste in the following code:

tell application "System Events"
tell application process "365SportTV"
set position of front window to {100, 50}
end tell
end tell

Fire up 365SportTV app, get your match going and then switch back to AS and click the green ‘Run’ button.

You can play with those two numbers near the end to suit your own screen. The first number is the number of pixels from the left, the second number is the number of pixels from the top.

Hope this helps.🙂

  1. I don’t think that makes sense. The 365SportTV app covers (almost) the full screen. I wouldn’t know where to move it to, and wouldn’t want to move it anyway.

    • If you have no need of the tip, then of course, the tip won’t apply to you.😉

      I would just point out though that its basic functionality of any app that you can click on the window and move it around or re-size it. In fact, I can’t think of any app except this one that doesn’t allow you to do that. For people like me, using multiple monitors with large screens, we want to be able to position and size the window where it suits us best.

      Unfortunately, although this bit of scripting will allow you to position the window where you want, it’s not possible to resize the window as the programmers haven’t put in the appropriate controls to allow that.
