Good PR move from Amazon, that only leaves BT to show anything for free (but not obliged to do so either).

I thought ISPs throttled internet connections during the pandemic if thsts the case those matches will be jittery and pixelated.

The EU asked streaming services to cut their bandwidth by 25%, but UK ISPs said there were no problems with load.

They used Amazon's streaming of the Premier League as an example of peak load on UK networks however (levels we've not seen during the pandemic).

There isn't much ISP throttling going on, some providers including Netflix and YouTube had limited auto playback to lower resolutions but I think those have been lifted now. Some areas are obviously going to have slower connections due to limited bandwidth but it's not a massive nationwide problem.

I've just checked. Netflix 4k stuff is still at 7.62 Mb/s for me, before the C-virus it would run at 15 Mb/s.

Just done an internet speed test, 71 Mb/s, 8ms ping, so nothing wrong there

Yes - Netflix at least is still throttled in the UK.

As it happens, working from home affects daytime capacity, whereas the peaks in the UK have tended to be evenings and weekends, so the main ISPs have said there has been no problem. Hopefully Amazon is back to its fastest when their games are on.

In France, MyCanal was capped to 720p/50fps, but since Macron loosened the restrictions, most channels are now back to normal using 1080p/50fps.

Grabs the Sky remote and set's up a reminder for that one... Rolling Eyes

In the same way that every team has to be on a certain number of times in a live Sky/BT game before a certain point in the season, I wonder if efforts will be made to feature every team at least once in the Amazon/BBC/Pick tv FTA games?

Are all the fixtures on the last day of the season still kicking off at the same time? If so I'm hoping that the BBC will get a live match on the last day, Or will all these fixtures all be on SKY and BT.

I already suggested a list of channels that could have games that day.
JAS84 posted:
They can easily show games on ten channels at once. I'm thinking BT Sport 1 and 2, BBC One, Sky Sports Premier League, Football, Action, and Arena, Pick, Challenge, and Sky One.


Though I forgot to account for Amazon Prime in that.
