IPTV


Christmas Tree

Recommended Posts

Can someone point me to an idiots guide to this IPTV thing? I remember faffing around with Kodi a few years back on my firestick but just giving up as it was too much hassle. Is this different, is it here to stay? I'm not that arsed really as I can do things while listening to the match on the radio if I'm not there in person, so if this is more than 3/10 in the complexity stakes, forget it. But then again if CT can use it......

I'll PM you cos the lads at this place don't like people chatting about specifics on forums etc.

Well. On this point. I said no to the smut, but I've since discovered that the backup service includes it anyway. :lol:

My mate (yes, not me) watches porn on a virtua reality 3D headset wit a flesh light. I can imagine that being embarassing if your kids come home from school early.

Isn't it more to protect the clubs lower down the pyramid? So if Newcastle is on a televised 3pm kick off then the theory is that the Fish will be sitting watching it in his string vest and undercrackers rather than take his lad to watch Harchester Rovers vs Fulchester Fannies.

I'm not sure it has any impact, the games most likely to draw a big tv audience are the games least likely to be on at 3pm. few people are binning off an afternoon with Wimbledon v Grimsby, just to stay in and watch Bournemouth v Forest.

Fair enough. Only Virgin offer high speed (1 gig) where I am, next closest is BT with 34mb.

 

Must say that the few times I have contacted them (via their forum), the response and service has been brilliant.

 

Never rang them though.

I think I've said before - if you get through to India, you're fucked but if you get the ex-telewest staff in Wigan or wherever it is near there you're sorted.

Indeed. Always make a support call in UK office hours. Anything evenings or weekends and you're talking to a bloke in Chennai who's working his way through a script that's in a continuous feedback loop.

Same here, fed up of watching stop \ start links and the quest to find one that works at 3.05pm. Any advice appreciated.

The Apex Sports "add-on" for Kodi has covered me for 90% of the stuff I don't get through Sky or BT. 

 

I've heard it's even more reliable for all the Sky and BT stuff, but wouldn't know. The 10% it's failed me has been for fairly obscure shit like Ross County v Celtic and Stirling Albion v Aberdeen.

I should probably add that almost everyone I know disagrees and swears IPTV is better and more reliable, from my brother in law right down to some *cough* pub landlords I know. And they're probably right.

 

The dodgy pub streams are almost always more seamless than mines tbf, but what do I know.

I was the same mate. For years I used a paid Kodi service for sport and free addons for movies and TV, and my IPTV mates were constantly on at me to switch, but I didn't need to and I didn't like the idea of being reliant on a dodgy bloke for things to work. 

 

Anyway, just before the season started this year the sports service that I had used without issue for about 10 years finally got shut down. So I switched to the IPTV that everyone on here uses and it's a canny bit better than my old setup. 

 

It's not like the Kodi thing was hard, but having everything in one place and all the live TV on hand with IPTV is class. Having said that, if my old sports thing was still going, I'd never have bothered switching, which I guess is where you're at.

Aye I'll probably make the jump if or when I end up having to pay for any of my current options. Hilariously Sky haven't noticed I stopped working for them for years and never asked for their shit back, and Kodi is only my other goto since I've been familiar with it since it was XBMC back in the original Xbox days. 

 

Apex is literally the only thing I still use Kodi for. It's been a good while since i had to fuck about looking for new add-ons every few months when the popular ones were getting shut down. Had no real reason to look into IPTV but the time will inevitably come, probably when I try to book a home-move with Sky next year
