Prime is showing All Blacks game live. Im sure they wouldn't dare show adverts during the game. If they do Fanpass will be promptly turned on

Prime is of course only SD and stereo sound, on both UHF/terrestrial/freeview HD and freeview satellite platforms.

Fanpass at 720p is potentially better quality.

I had some tweets with Prime earlier. They are putting adverts in the games, but I got the impression that you wouldn't miss any of the game but you'd fall further and further behind "live".

Prime is FTA, and is RWC free? No. Someone has to pay, Sky could just make it Fanpass or Sky Sport only. Be thankful it is FTA.

I'm watching the womans rugby live on Chromecast. Quality seems to be a bit better than last time I tried it out.
The live games though may be a different story.

Interesting. I searched geekzone in the searchbar for that code before posting. It came back with no results, so I assumed it had not yet been posted. 
Searching again now still shows no results. Apologies for duplicate post.

Mine was pretty good, during the last 10 it paused and became pixelated every so often. Changing the Fan pass channel seemed to help.

Does anyone know if Prime put ads in their coverage as expected?
