Was watching crusaders last weekend and there were a couple of times the image just stopped and about 3-5 sec's later everything went back fine. Am using apple TV 4k (wired) and on 200/20 speed connection. Have had this happen on a couple of other games i have watched. Watching warriors now and everything is fine. Have also noticed sometimes the image is just bad, like watching a 320p youtube video. Doesnt last long maybe 1-2mins.

Similar experience for me. Occasional judder/skipped frames, but otherwise a decent picture. $30 is acceptable with those issues, I wouldn't be that impressed paying the full price for it.

Can you access on unlimited devices (obviously only one will play at one time, but technically you can change devices willy nilly?

No limit to how many devices you can use the app on.

Senecio:

I'm a Spark customer and think it would be great value but I'd be lost without the pop up channels. 



I have to agree. Pass.

You can enroll, but 48 hours to set up. I just did it earlier today.

Had a couple of issues around 9:10 last night watching rugby. image stopped and had to jump channels and back again to get working. Also noticed around that time image quality started going down, looked like i was watching 340p video for about 2-3 minutes.

corksta: Fully aware it doesn’t include the pop up channels, all I want is the usual sports (rugby, netball, cricket, etc) that play on their normal channels like it has always done through their satellite service, not interested in the pop ups.

 

I am currently subscribed to Fanpass (joined in January on a six month plan). I won't be renewing, and the main reason is the lack of pop up channels. I've enjoyed watching the IPL (Indian Premier League Twenty20 cricket). Most games were on the main channels, great. The final was put on a pop up channel, and a full match replay wasn't put on the main channel until 30 hours after the event. If Sky do put major events on a pop up channel, they need to put a replay on a main channel as soon as practically possible. Darts (not a major but I do watch it from time to time) also seems to be on a pop up channel, and no replays on the main channels.

 

Not really sure of the reason they don't offer pop up channels. It won't cost Sky anymore, since they've already acquired the broadcast rights for Sky (STB) customers.
