Have Lightbox changed their CDN recently as I'm seeing a lot more video artefacts in the last couple of days.

 

I've just started Season 3 of Mr Robot and the darker scenes aren't as clear as the previous seasons. I wanted to make sure it was just a season 3 issue.

 

My setup is version 1.0.1 of the Android TV apk on a FireTV Stick and typically the video will hold at a sustained throughput of 9Mbit during playback.

 

I know Lightbox are supposed to be switching over to Brightcove later this month and I'm hoping we don't see any drop in video quality as some of the existing TVNZ On Demand streams aren't very good via the Brightcove service.

Nope, no CDN changes. Does it do it consistently with that content, or all content?

At the moment we're only watching Season 3 of Mr Robot and it has affected all episodes we've watched.

 

I'll keep an eye on this and see how other shows look as we've bookmarked "The High Road" for a watch.

Great quality for the High Road last night, but the show isn't as dark as Mr Robot (in a lot of ways).

 

Loving the show by the way, very pleased to see Lightbox pick it up.
