Re: SkyStream

My advice is DON'T DO IT!

 

Sky stream is absolutley Sh-rubbish-it!!!

 

If you watch sports, you either have to watch live or watch at specific replay times for the first week or so.  When you get past that, if it's there to watch (& it isn't always) & with any other replay, you have a massive issue with replay, in that if you want to fast forward or backwards, it jumps back to the start and you have to watch 5 minutes of adverts - I don't mind the adverts but every time you touch FF or Reverse...it's back to the first set of adverts!

 

If you watch a replay and eventually get back to the bit you want to watch...just before you get to the end, the program just stops a lot of the time - you then have to start watching all over again and FF through to the last 10 or 15 mins - along with the 15 to 30 minutes of adverts (& no, I am not paying monthly to get rid of the adverts because I'm certain I'll be even more disapointed).

 

I could go on & on & on about how rubbish Stream is but there's not enough room but please, believe me - do not change to Stream!  I am going to speak to Sky in the store in town and try to change to being able to record what I want to watch...even if I have to pay more.

Well, obviously if you don't pay for ad skipping you can't skip the ads. 

 

But in general I agree. I wouldn't touch Stream either.

Re: SkyStream

Like I said, I don't mind the adverts but I'm certain that Sky have put in place software that skips you right back to the start of the program, every time you want to Fast Forward or Reverse while watching playback!

I will be trying to get a change, to a system where I can record the programs I want to watch.

Re: SkyStream

@Kenneth10 have tried to order online?

 

Will your BB service deliver a sufficient connection speed?

 

Do you intend to use WiFi or an Ethernet cable to connect to your router?

Re: SkyStream

Mine works perfectly, skip through adverts (free advert skipping until August) then £5 a month, don't mind that, if you don't like it stick with Q, it all depends on your broadband speed & bandwidth, I'm on Virgin 1gig so no issues.

 

I don't watch sport so can answer that, just the main channels bbc, itv, ch4 , ch5 & Quest

Re: SkyStream

Just give it a go, you have a cooling off period, if you don't like it just s3nd it back to Sky you get plenty of time to test it, 31 days, it's just totally different from Q, I don't mind that there's no hard drive to record programs

So would I notice a difference if I subscribed to Sport & added it to the Playlist?

I've playlisted lots of various different sports form TNT Sports, Eurospots and Sky Sports over the past 6 months and have rarely had an issue. The only issue has been when the playlist hasn't updated with the latest event for events on the TNT/Eurosport platform, but thats not a massive issue as can just open the Discovery + app and watch the replay.
