I took a trial of him last week, was really impressed with the app he's got. 

Only slight drawback in that it's only available on new generation firestock or Android box

I tried it out last Saturday using the Mayo-Ros game on Eir as the guinea pig.
The app was a nice idea actually.
I found it froze/buffered quite a bit during the game.
My internet isnít brilliant by any stretch - anything up to about 20 mb/s.
So my own internet could well be (and probably is) the culprit.
Unfortunately I donít think any IPTV will work as smoothly as Netflix does for me.

Eir froze for me last weekend with a different provider and one of the lads travelling to the match Sunday mentioned his coverage was sketchy and he has a Sky box  ;D so I'd not use that match as a reference point.

I'm working on about 25-30Mb for the last couple years with little problems, most problems tend to have come at various providers end.

Looking to put Kodi on either a Smart TV, Fire stick or Apple TV - haven't used it in a couple of years - whats the best option?

Ideally would like to stream downloads from a NAS using Kodi and get some add-ons to stream movies and sports etc

Any suggestions welcome..cheers

Anyone use ontarget? All online presence seems to have disappeared - Twitter, website etc. Service still working fine though.

Is there any value in a Sky + box?

Changed over and just checking whether just to dump it?

I've said it on here before, if you are using a supplier that is openly online (facebook/twitter etc) then you are going to have your service cut at some point. You need to go with people who you get to by word of mouth. The rest will be hunted down eventually and you will end up being out of pocket as they will go off mid subscription.

I'll not be out of pocket as I paid £25 for a years subscription 8 months ago. Paid for itself in about 2 weeks vs sky

I kept mine and stuck it in the spare room for freeview.
