kipkip:
JarrodM: the app is being reviewed by apple at the moment, shouldn't be too much longer.


Apple always taking ages to review the app, unless you have good connections within Apple...and literally forces you to have a testing environment opened up so that they can play the apps.


Yep - absolutely - that's why Apple have fewer apps with bugs or lazy code cos they take the time to curate everything. Android will allow pretty much anything.

@KopKiwi: Point of order.

What I said was very true. Just because it didn't work for you doesn't make me a liar.

Bah, now you don't have the option of checking a demo!

I'd like to see it running on my Nexus 7 just to see the quality but I'm not paying $24 for a day pass to test it

God these guys are hard work

Dororke: Android app seems to only play at a maximum of 1600Kbps


I had been wondering about that. I sent them an email a couple of days ago asking about what bit rate the apps would be capable of streaming at. I got the stock response about their release, telling me that no date had been set for the release of the apps... Didn't fill me with confidence that they had actually read my question!
Also did anyone else notice that the premier league footage on TV3 news had the PLP watermark on it but somehow had none of the motion 'jutter' problems their regular customers are having to put up with! It seems where there's a will, there's a way.

@Nonprayingmanits

It was also a higher quality video, didn't look anything like the 3mpbs stream I watched on my TV at the weekend!

I wouldn't say useless.  I watch Netflix at 1600kbps on a big screen quite often.  It's not HD, but it's still watchable

Only if PLP's video quality were as good as Netflix's.

Still do not understand the logic behind capping the bitrate though. Surely they would have known that people would want  to hook up their Android devices to watch on TV. Unless they're really that clueless.

I wonder if they'll cap the Apple app. Was kind of banking on air play at 3K to the big screen.
