It's not in HDR is it? I thought it was vanilla UHD.

It was HDR.

On your network and with your equipment. On many others a near flawless experience was obtained.

Are there any reports from users of Amazon's own proprietary kit?

It’s going between 25fps and 50fps I just don’t think iptv is cut out just yet.


If it's flipping between two different qualities like that it suggests that the player at your end is trying to maximise the quality against your bandwidth. It's not going to be happening at the source.

There is an argument to be had about the automatic quality selection being a bit aggressive on many of the streaming platforms, often I'd rather have a lower quality stream that will play without issues than a nicer quality feed for 50% of the time and it flapping between the two like a pub sign in a hurricane. But then I chose to watch stuff when I'm interested in the content rather than the pixels (get enough of that at work thank you very much).

Amazes me the quality being generated on AppleTV4K (even an HD stream MUN-TOT).

EDIT Kiss of Death ... now moved to BTTV4K YV,

Didn’t even work for people I work with probably works for you with your fancy fibre connection down south!

I watched part of the Burnley match on Tuesday on an Amazon Fire stick in HD and it was rock solid.

I am on an obscenely fast Virgin Media fibre connection though.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Watched Wolves v West Ham with no issues on a Fire Stick, on Sky's standard broadband.

For the first time, I've had no issues watching on the Shield. Solid 1080/50 stream watching Spurs v Brighton.

IMHO, the PQ isn't as good as Now TV at 1080/50, but a vast improvement on earlier this month.

Which feed are you on, the unique match one or the EGEG one?
