    PIA. Haven't had any buffering issues with 2 concurrent 1080p streams.

    Ironic that it probably works better on our fibre internet than their NBN. Parallel importing live sport ftw :P

    Just remember you'll still need the use of an Aussie mobile to signup DarkCypher.

    This gave me a laugh:
    Sky TV says it paid "in excess of $200 million" to secure satellite capacity for the next 10 years through Optus.

    Under the deal, Optus will provide SKY with satellite capacity to 2031. The current contract expires in 2021.

    The satellite spend-up is guaranteed to draw snarks on social media at a time when more and more people are streaming video via the internet.

    But Sky chief financial officer Jason Hollingworth says only satellite coverage can guarantee content, "particularly live sport, can be reliably delivered to 100 per cent of New Zealand."

    Many will see that as a backhand dig at Spark, which will attempt to stream the 2019 Rugby World Cup and a raft of other sports events over the internet next year (though will also have free-to-air partner TVNZ as a backup).

    Sky emphasises that although it is splashing out to extend its satellite deal, it is also investing in new delivery technologies, and bandwidth-hungry features like 4K and HDR quality video.

    An Android-powered "puck" will be released in the New Year that will enable Sky subscribers to receive all live channels (as well as apps and on-demand content) via a broadband connection. Later in 2019, a fibre-friendly, app-only service is planned.

    "The hybrid delivery of SKY's content via the satellite and internet is a key competitive advantage, particularly for sport," Hollingworth says.

    Too little too late

    They can’t just make a deal like that, their investors and board would have approved that kind of transaction
    Which goes to show how ****ed they are, their shareholders continue to believe satellite tv is the future of entertainment

    Sky will disappear just like Cinemas and video rental stores

    Sky thinks offering 4K hdr on 5 channels in 2021 while charging you $20/month for the privilege will be enough
    Right... Netflix has done 4K for years, Japan is doing 8k 22.2 streams

    Sky is always behind the ball and continue to charge you an arm and leg for it

    Cinemas are still reasonably strong.

    They've unlocked most channels from Dec 24th until 6am on Monday.

    Why is Seifert standing so far back to 124k deliveries.

    That doesn't really make sense in the context of the presentation HELL KNIGHT quoted

    For all the flaws of Sky tv, I'm starting to wish they still had the rights to F1. It starts next month and Spark still don't have a service ready.

    I think I will have to find an alternative way to watch it.
    Even though they were just broadcasting the direct airing from Sky UK, it was fantastic coverage.

  22. Post
    I don't watch it anymore, but I wonder whether the online feed with be in 4k?

    Sky UK has a dedicated F1 channel and has it in 4k. This year they will be adding HDR too. Mind you they charge the equivalent of around 34 NZD for that channel, so I'd expect it to be decent.

    Whatever anybody does, do not get a Vodafone TV. It's rubbish.
