did anyone here watch last saturday night's football qualifiers via IPTV? got my subscription a couple of weeks ago and was OK up until that point with the odd freeze here and there but during the 2 games there was a lot of freezing and buffering. only took the sub out for a month so can change providers easily enough. just wondering did anyone else experience this?

I did a wee trial with showbox iptv there during the week.  I had it running through the smart iptv app on my LG TV.  I have to say it worked really well but then i was trying it during a period of time with little volume of traffic.  All HD channels seemed to play no problem with no buffering issues (i get lots of buffering on HD with sportsmania).  I am reluctant to fork out 70 bills though for a year when the whole thing could turn to turd once a big match is of for example.  Anyone else use it?

Also what other IPTV services are there and do any of them offer shorter term agreements?

I have one provider on a box at home and a different one at work, the one at home froze as you describe during those matches but the one at work (a cheaper sub) never missed a beat apparently. It's been pretty damn good other than that in fairness.

I've read that all the streams are coming from the same 2 or 3 guys anyway no matter who your provider is..

First game was fine - second game was terrible. Freezing all the time.
Couldnt imagine there was much difference in traffic between both games so dont know what the reason is.

Overall well worth the 70 quid which is what Sky were getting and more each month

With IPTV what is the minimum download speed that you would require for the box to work sufficiently?

The gaelic on saturday night and ITV Box Office for the Eubank fight were bad.

Am on a free IPTV trial on my Smart TV - is there an easy way to upload channel groupings?

I've got thousands of the shagging things - back in the Dreambox days you could upload 'Bouquets' to group the channels x category

Cheers..
