I've been trying to watch live streaming TV on:
http://www.veetle.com/

But it doesn't seem to work during shaping hours on bigtime.
At 6.00am in the morning it streams fine but the aussie open isn't on then :-)

Could someone try it during peak time that isn't on bigtime to see if its the shaping stopping it please..
Its not a movie or torrent d/l so it shouldn't be shaped ?

I am sure Veetle will use a p2p system, how else would they be able to provide HD content thats streaming live.
So Telecoms elves will be shaping it.

ALL TRAFFIC is managed on Big Time. They say so on their Big Time product page more than one time.

Veetle uses a lot of hd content i have seen it as high as 1500KB streaming so you do need a fast connection so big time is not a good choice




Common sense is not as common as you think.

i have managed to watch veetle streaming at 800kb but it broke up now and again , to watch real HD streaming in NZ , the average person wont have much luck with any plan or isp provider.
