I was watching the cricket on sky go today and the bit rate appears to have massively increased and is now 60fps. Is this a recent update? Or has it been like this for a while?

Hey yeah 😉

 

I ran skygo and sky sport now side by side and skygo its totally 60fps while SSN still looks very 30fps

 

shouldnt it be the other way around?

 

 

 

Actually. SKYGO looks way better than SSN now

Yea, i tried SSN and wasn’t overly impressed by the image quality....
Sky go on the other hand actually looks pretty impressive now. Its about time though, sky go image quality used to be total garbage imo

Yeah, I noticed a few weeks back it went from jerky 576p or so to 1080p decent FPS. Very pleased with it now.

You mean 50 FPS? We're a PAL country, not a NTSC country.

NTFS is in no way relevant to anything but over the air broadcast.

I had noticed this last week and to be honest, once they allow casting/AirPlay it'll be perfect! 

 

It's almost hyper-realistic, the framerate is so high. Fantastic for those of us that are banished to the front room to watch the Phoenix on the computer every week...

I assume you transposed NTSC - but no it's not relevant for streaming - except Sky's streaming platform takes content from the same sources as their OTA channels which is all 50Hz content for playout after the local post processing.

Except for the surfing which was so bad on SkyGo this morning I rebooted and tried several times then have gone to the WSL feed. It was unwatchable and blurry.

Wow, it's better then Sky on Demand (where download to decoder)

 

It won't air play to Apple TV, but works great on Chromecast.

 

Sky Go for the big screen now.
