BlakJak: And why shouldn't they blink? Now is not the time to experiment. Now is the time to ensure their customers get the experience they pay for.. or it'll be a disaster for them. Credit for going as far as they have, but why overlook a perfectly valid method of media distribution due to a technical challenge they're not sure they've solved yet?
"Blinked" here is in the sense that they could have been conservative and sold the service as Chromecast plus DishTV A2 plus smartphones only. Smart TVs are a gamble because the vast majority are underpowered. And some are not even Android TV OS so you can count they won't be as well supported.
Yes. But then, why cant I watch it thats not fair. Maybe NZ is not ready for live streaming, lets stick to Sky, then we have Sky bagging threads that tell us to get with the times.
