Amazon Prime Video have 50 or 60fps streaming for their live sport output. They switched very soon after they started doing Tennis.
Only on cerain platforms. It is 50/60fps when I watch it through the web browser (even on the lowest quality setting!), but I've used the Virgin, Roku/Now TV and Samsung Amazon Prime apps over the last few months, and they still only show it at 25/30p.
Plus their non-sport 50/60i streaming content is still only 25/30p through any platform.
I've said it before, but I don't see streaming as a suitable replacement for linear TV or DVDs/Blu-Rays until 50/60Hz streaming is standard. I can't really understand why it's not widely available, and many of those that do still only have it on limited content and certain platforms, it's not exactly hard to do a decent quality de-interlace to 50/60p these days (and any UHD content is made progressive anyway) and processing and bandwith limitations aren't really an issue any more (especially when it's SD content). If the BBC and ITV can manage it, the likes of Netflix, Amazon and Disney really should. They can give us UHD and all fancy kinds of audio configurations, but they can't give us a frame rate higher than 30p?
