@Talkiet

 

Neil, is there now an average time it takes to go from the end of the livestream to the OD being up in the app, that you are aware?

Interesting, first time my wife has watched Spark Sport with me on the Apple TV 4k and her first comment was "is it me or is it jittery".

 

Just changed to the Shield to cast to it

I'm getting the buffering aswell on fibre in Auckland, I had to change from my kodi fixed 1080p spark stream to the spark sport app on my Sony TV. The Spark app would then set the quality to variable but though the quality is variable it buffers. This ain't good at all..

Have had maybe half a dozen moments of buffering. Probably 2-4 seconds each. Quickly recovers and jumps back up to higher bit rate. Really want this to go well for spark.

I agree seems like a lot what it to fail but if they can sort it out it adds a new dimension to watching sport

Had a few resolution drops on ATV... seems to be struggling a little... checked the Panasonic TV app and that’s the same so I’m going to assume Spark is having a few issues. Internal network is fine.

Getting quite a few resolution drops on Chromecast. It wasn't like that last night, so I presume it's the extra people watching the ABs. On Spark Fibre 100mbps.

Welp, Spark Sport have managed to piss off the missus and we don't even have a subscription... the movie she was watching on Duke has just been replaced by live rugby!

Yep, looks like they are stuggling to cope with the demand......

 

All was good until the ABs are underway.  I also hope Spark can sort things out.  Sick of the Spark bashing but they are going to have to make some changes for sure.
