Re: PICTURE BREAK UP ON SKY SPORTS CHANNELS NOW TV???

I haven't used the sports service for just over a week but I did finally get the picture breakup fault a couple of times during the Newcastle-Chelsea game the Sunday before last.

 

Watching the Cup final and other events on BT Sports this past weekend I realised its going to be quite embarrassing for Sky/Now TV when BT comes to Now TV next year.

Leave aside the almost constant errors from the almost year long picture freeze to the now picture breakup faults, on BT Sports I was watching an exceptionally good 1080P picture running at 50 fps rather than Now's 720P 25 fps and BT only costs £5 a month!

The app Isnt available to non bt broadband subscribers so it’s not really an issue, it will probably cost the same as via sky which is £34.49 for hd which is way overpriced for what they offer

You have kind of missed the point, BT Sports online for a fiver a month is stupidly better than Sky Sports via Now TV for £34 a month.

Until the BT Sports app appears on Now TV devices none of us know how much the pricing will be for non BT, EE or Sky subscribers (the app is available to all 3 not just BT broaband customers) but I doubt it will be anywhere near the figure you quoted.

Re: PICTURE BREAK UP ON SKY SPORTS CHANNELS NOW TV???

Currently experiencing seriously poor picture quality on Sky Sports News channel on Now Tv, through the Roku. It is that bad I cannot even read what the ticker tape currently says at the bottom of the screen. Usually it is fine our end but definitely not this afternoon. Same currently for Sky Cinema Live channels. Just tried Dunkirk on demand and that in the other hand is fine. Me thinks the playoff Championship final is taking its toll on the Live servers.

Paid £7.99 sky sports pass to watch first game of the 18/19 season and can’t watch, constant video blocking. Does anyone at NowTV care?

Really poor service, like it’s a very low bitrate for the video. Should be refunded. Unwatchable!

I know it doesn't help you but on a Roku Streaming Stick+ and the NowTV Smart Box it was faultless throughout.
