WOW, it's turning out be a real content battle.

 

SKY squaring up the rights for a while for ABs! :) - I don;t use the SKYSportNOW app does anyone use (eg Bathurst yesterday?) and compare v SKSPRT, surely SKY will have ironed out the network/streaming probs by the time the new super season starts? thoughts?

I guess time will tell. I don't think SSN is big TV friendly right now. I haven't used it (but looks good on smaller screens), but that's what being reported by a number of sources.

Slightly different, but could be merged without too much variation in discussion.

Really?    Credit where it's due....ran SSN all weekend for bathurst, on Apple TV to 46" panel.  During the race yesterday I had 1 drop out when I had to restart the stream, and 1 audio drop out for 30 seconds (if it was the RWC I'm sure it would have hit the papers.... </groan> ).

 

But quality was good, much better than the sky-go via browser I used last year.

Perhaps they fixed it, but I have a few friends and colleagues who tried it in the past month and all independantly said a similar thing. If it's working on big TV's now, that's excellent news.

 

Hopefully, they will give those of us with STB subscriptions a good rate so we can watch sport on the go!

That does sound really promising for SSN - Great news! Do they use a differnt platform to SparkSport (iStream planet) or different provider.

It works on big TV's, always has. It looks great, BUT the frame rate isn't smooth. Its a lot like when SS dropped to 30fps, motion was jerky, and its noticeable enough to be annoying. I have Sky, but I bought the Bathurst pass just to see is SSN has improved, and it hasnt. Fanpass was the same, that was 720p and thats fine but the smoothness was intermittent

I wouldn't say that jerky ala 30FPS fits within my defintion of works great, personally, I'd classfiy that as "service isn't suitable for big TV" judder in sport viewing is horrible.

I said it looks great not works great, I should have clarified the sharpness is great. Same as SS was. Bathurst is more forgiving than rugby, and it was ok. Often it looked great as there was no panning, as in they are coming at you down Conrod Straight. Sideways it was ok as the background judder is less noticeable as its cars moving at the same speed not players that arent. Not good enough for me but others seemed to be ok with it. Just as we are all ok with judder in action movies as they all have the same issue. Sport makes it 500% more obvious though

Yeah the moving sideways helicopter shots down conrod straight when the cars where under the trees were the most noticeable for judder....but hey, I didn't have to buy a decoder box and a 12 month plan to get access to it, so it didn't bother me.

I was hoping it would be better, so I can move off MySky. To be fair, for Bathurst it was more than ok most of the time, the judder was background so less noticeable. I'm liking Spark Sport, SSN needs to up the fps. But the other issue is replays. There are hardy any still.

I'd prefer if they added ondemand replays.....of course the sky model is to repeat the shiz out of everything.  But was surprised there was rewind....but I did find it a little unstable on apple tv.
