bbunnys: Unblock US is not working for me this year on V8 Supercars site. 

Last year streamed fine with Unblock US and signed up with my NZ Post Youshop address. 

Just paid the $14 AU now thinking would be same as last year. But stream keeps saying cant stream as im in NZ/Aussie. 

Might have to try the Getfix 14 day trial just so I can watch this year.


EDIT: Yep works fine on Getfix. Think ill swap permanity from Unblock US if it no longer supports the V8's


What's the quality of the stream like? Is it HD?

Cheers - N

Well... That was simple. VPN + $14.95 AUD and the second Credit Card I tried. 

Got a good stream and nothing else to do tomorrow :-)

I thought it a ironic on Prime news last nite where they were showing high lights with a CH 7 bug saying "Live and Free"  when Sky their parent locks it down to pay sport  only.

I have to say the official V8SC feed (bouncing through a VPN in the US) is exceptional. It's not 720p but the quality is very, very good. There hasn't been a single glitch since the start of the pre-show broadcast. Motion is fluid, sound is well synced (There was a whole segment before the race that was OOS, but that was the broadcast not the streaming).

$15 well spent.

It's also great hearing the commentators throwing to ads every 20 minutes or so for 3-4 minutes - but the feed I have isn't interrupted and there's still commentary during the ads time as well... Then out of nowhere there's a "AND WELCOME BACK" :-)

Cheers - N

Had the same issue on Sky, The "Intro" before the '1hour before the race' the audio was way off, Had me restarting my Reciever & Skybox trying to find what part is causing it!

Don't see that often. But that patch of track is a ruddy mess.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.
