Oh.

 

Scroll down rather than clicking "watch now"

 

 

Scroll down to what exactly? I see a number of headings (highlights, from the vault etc.), none of which cater for live game scheduling.

 

 

 

At this screen (right after you select NBA from dropdown) you just scroll. Content is below.

And... You have to give a credit card for the free trial.
No, just no.

 

 

That's annoying.
I was hoping to be able to link it to my Spark account

 

😡

 

 

I wasn't that thrilled to see that either to be honest.

Hey there - currently, the information for each entry on the EPG is not viewable. This is something being worked on.

 

Cheers!

The EDGE and MUTV channels are buttery smooth on 4G, samsung Note4.

 

Well impressed with that





The little things make the biggest difference.

Cheers, clears that up. Definitely something that is needed, can only imagine if you had the likes of Super Rugby and a game showing at 7:30pm on a Friday night with no indication as to which game it was.

Just following on from the F1 thread re image judder. I am watching here via Linux, Chrome, i7 with 16G ram, not seeing judder that I would associate with poor coding, but possibly seeing 30Hz pull down related type of issues that are that are part of the source material ?? this was on the Brazilian coverage

 

Cyril

 

Edit: so no real complaint from me, what I am seeing looks fantastic.

Playing in a web browser I am seeing a weird effect that looks like microlag (was watching some fighting thing). Quality looks fine. I'll try some more and see if I can reproduce it.

its not the source material, its browser specific. the issue is not happening in Firefox,   it also seems like they are using the feed from F1TV instead of Sky UK which would be 25fps vs 50

 

for last years races is my guess as F1TV was not doing 50fps but will be doing it this year

 

 

 

either way that shouldn't be happening in Chrome.  Tried the same one in Edge and it just failed completely with "DRM_NO_KEY_SYSTEM")

 

 

 

Chrome Version 73.0.3683.75 (Official Build) (64-bit) on Windows 10 -- unwatchable sorry

 

Firefox on Windows 10 - fine

 

Edge on Windows 10 - error message unplayable

 

Android App - fine

 

Android casting to Chromecast - fine

Try Firefox, there seems to be an issue for some on Chrome. If that's what you tried, and latest version, something will be found, Talkiet has raised it

From their FAQ;

 

What devices can I watch Spark Sport on?  

 

Google Chromecast

 

A Google Chromecast plugs into the HDMI port of your TV and uses your home WiFi to stream sports from your device onto your TV. When watching something on the Spark Sport app, just click the Chromecast icon, at the top right hand side of the screen, to cast the sport to your TV.

 

Apple TV

 

Spark Sport is not currently available on Apple TV. We are working to introduce this functionality over the next 6 months. Check back here for more details soon.

 

In the meantime, if you have an Apple TV and an Apple device, you can AirPlay from your device to a big screen.

 

Laptop and Desktop

 

You can also catch the action from the Spark Sport website, either on your laptop or desktop computer. Spark Sport is available on Windows 7, 8 and 10 and MacOS X on the following browsers: Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

 

Mobile Devices

 

If you’re out and about, sometimes you’ll want to watch the action from your smartphone. To do this head to the App Store or Google Play Store and download the app. The Spark Sport app works on iOS 10 and above and Android 5.0 and above. 

 

Spark Sport will use your mobile data for streaming, if you are not connected to WiFi. See here for more info on Spark Sport data usage.

 

Smart TVs

 

Spark Sport is not currently available to watch using an app on Smart TVs. Over the coming months we are working to introduce this functionality onto a number of different TV makes and models. Check back here for more details soon.

 

In the meantime, you can use Chromecast or AirPlay to cast Spark Sport to your TV from your phone, tablet or laptop.
