I'm having the same issues, but the website has just started responding again.

Took me 30 min, but managed finaly to get on, just in time to see the first try. Website very sluggish, but streaming is 100% fine.

Tested via both Maxnet and Slingshot and yeah both www.skytv.co.nz and www.isky.co.nz is dead in the water.

Guess I have to watch the replay at 9pm on Freeview TV :(

Anyone know the link to where the stream is?

Yeah it eventually started to work mid way through the first half.

The video quality is also pretty shocking, would like the option for a better stream or to be auto sensing like netflix etc. Certainly won't be needing a UFB style connection for iSKY.
