aschteev: Watching HB vs MAN on SSN ATV 4K and stream keeps pausing every few minutes. Very frustrating. Tech support suggested uninstalling and reinstalling the app, but still experience the issue.
it’s happening for me too hasn’t stopped for about 15 minutes but very low quality
If I restart the stream it’s crystal clear but then freezes

Least you can watch it on a native app. It's not working on my Samsung TV, and cant get it to work at all, so having to resort to the unofficial kodi add-on.  Tech support couldn't help getting the TV app to work, so stuck with it for now (although it does work ok to be fair).

This was happening to me a couple of weeks ago. I hasn’t happened since I upgraded to the latest version of tvOS. Might be a coincidence but worth a go, try upgrading.

Or so I thought. The NRL final froze about 10 times tonight. Bloody annoying. Get it together Sky. Not good enough.

The NRL final was pretty good for me but earlier on saturday afternoon the mitre 10 cup games were pausing and freezing about 6-8 times per game. Closing and reopening the app works well.

 

I don't know whether to persevere with it now....

Not enough money in the coffers to employ some decent programmers eh.

First they need to sort the buffer health, id up it to 20 seconds.

Second they need to make it actually on demand. Not wait 8 hours for them to load the game if you are 5 mins late to a game.

3rd , ux is horrible.

4th, 4k 60hz should be a given in 2020,

Until they fix that, I'm pirating.

You can on demand for 24 hours. You can scrub to the beginning if you are 5 minutes late.

Who makes sport content @4k. Apart from the olympics, no one.

I think the key word is bundle, it wont affect the SSN that people are having issues with, it appears to be a billing change only.

Your 4k 60hz statement is nonsense for live sports broadcasts. It is, and will remain for sometime, a niche requirement. The rest of your post is reasonable.

EPL is filmed in 4K (obviously another platform)

 

NFL / NBA /  (some) MLS,  PGA, MLB world series   all filmed in 4K

 

and in AU:

 

RWC was 4K plus:

 

FOX SPORTS Ultra HD will make you feel like you’re in the grandstand. Foxtel, the only way to watch your favourite sports in 4K, including every day of the Domain Test series, every match of the Gillette ODI and T20INTL series, selected games of the 2020 Telstra NRL and 2020 Toyota AFL premierships, every race of the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship™ plus a whole lot more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But, I expect if someone is pirating now, there would be more rationalisations later if these improvements were made.

Last time I tried to watch a rugby game 20 mins after it it had finished, I could not find the game on the service for 8 hours.

I just roll back in the guide to the start of the game and click watch (android tv)
