Some people were holding hope for the channels to be made available again, but at the end of the day they never recovered the HD channels when they went so was always looking the same for the latest ones that have been going.

I am going for IPTV, but going to hold off for a month or too to see how stable it is with a lot of people going to go to it now in big numbers.

I've noticed channels gradually disappearing alright. Not good but then it was never probably going to last for ever and the level of evasion is now probably starting to affect the bottom line for Sky, BT and what the rights holders are able to extort.

Ultimatemania, sportsmania and sportsnation had major issues.
The football games could only be watched by using a VPN.
When the football was on the rest of their stations were down.
Seems to have been a court case that is forcing the major broadband companies to take action.
After the football was over all stations were fully working again .
The mods of the mania stations say they have a work around which will be in place for next season.
The VPN is a pain but they still work.

Long term I would say if you want to watch via IPTV then you will have to have a good VPN.
Wanted.  Forwards to take frees.
Not fussy.  Any sort of ability will be considered

It seems all IPTV are under attack at the minute from DDOS attacks and the likes definitely has to be Sky etc fighting back, a lot of IPTV providers are actually resellers so if the source is getting affected then all the different reseller products will be as well. More talk of with my subscription of them moving to new servers and improving this and that but at the end of the day Sky just needs to know where the new source is and attack it instead of the old one.

Also looks like they are attacking the Payment Engines. Trying to lobby things like Paypal to not take subscriptions for IPTV.

It's harder to nail down the IPTV providers because of the nature of what they are doing, and the flexibility that the internet provides. Easier to scramble your own signals.

Apparently it's grand with the Kodi add-on through the firestick if you avoid the Sky channels, which I tend to do anyway.
Phosporescent!
