Been watching games all day without a major issue. Now buffering all the time watching the all blacks.

Completely unacceptable and they have failed. They have to give this up and make it free to air.

I'm not wanting Spark Sport to fail (My sons best friend dad works for them) and I dont actually care about the Rugby but the load is causing issues with my precious F1 :-(

 

 

 

 

lol I get it, a suggestion, why don't you F1 dudes switch off for another hour and we rugby nuts will leave you to it ;)

 

 

 

 

better deal, lets just all play nicely and watch at 720p/60 🤣

kharris: 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.


At the streaming end it isn’t really ‘spark’ but more Endeveor (Neilson) I think. Potentially under provisioned but I doubt that so not sure what it could be.

I had a few bufferings but nothing in the other games. I’m on 2 Degrees 4K Apple TV.

F1 FP3 stream is still up and down in terms of resolution... 60 fps appears to be holding but meh, disappointed with Spark Sport at the moment.... Thank goodness this wasn't the race at the same time as the Rugby!

Free to air live... nice... but I paid to see this live... so I’m not really getting value for money now am I?

Yeps buffering now and then, and there and takes a few seconds to recover full res. Was going to plug in the ethernet cable but I know I've got plenty of wifi bandwidth so guessed the buffering was SS and not my end. Previous 3 games have not buffered a single time. Overall I'm still happy..still..

I gave up when it got this bad.

Yup, I'm on 800/500 fibre, but most of this game has been in such low resolution, it's almost unwatchable.  Sorry Spark, this is a fail.

 

Earlier games were fine, so I guess it's down to the load on AB games.  Not acceptable.

I am assuming the press release on this one might not be so flash. Either that or a lot of spin,

Guessing some Akamai endpoints are struggling ?

The amount of people demanding refunds when spark have a working backup plan in place..
