from your previous posts if exchange was upgraded to 21CN you would notice little difference if any due to your distance from the exchange
Hello, I have recently heard that BT Sport has the rights for MotoGP in 2014.
Brilliant, I have BT Broadband, it will be free for me.
Oh wait, the required speed is 400kbps, and my BT provided Broadband is less than half of that speed!
I assume, BT will be upgrading the equipment in my area to enable me to have the required speed to view this?
I can dream... Seriously angry about this.
That's a big assumption. I can't imagine BT or Openreach spending lots of money just so that you can watch the MotoGP.
400k is pretty slow these days - it it just because you are on a very long line, or is there an underlying problem?
Well folks, I managed to find my way into BT Sport because I'm in the same boat as Tourn46, I want to carry on watching MotoGP in 2014 (but I won't pay subscription fees to anyone).
Just checked my connection speed - excellent - 8MB.
Just watched some tennis on BT Sport 2 - YouTube quality at best. BT Sport 1 even poorer and ESPN, wouldn't connect.
Hohum. No more watching those incerdible machines being wrestled around at 200mph in HD/slow motion. I think I'll probably not bother to watch. I see I could maybe get HD by paying for an Infinit package - oops, I won't pay any more so that's out. I see the BT channels come up on my Samsung SmartTV on FreeView, but I'd need a subscription box to get those- oops, I won't pay any more so that's out too.
If you are getting 8MB (is that a speedtester test) then the PC stream can provide very good quality pictures if your PC and video card are good enough. I haven't noticed any difference in quality across the BT Sport or ESPN channels other than when the source broadcast has cleary been recorded in a lower definition.
What screen resolution are you using ?
Samsung Netbook on whatever resolution it pumps out. Not intending to buy new computer either... and all I got when I tried all 3 channels just now was the rotating wait thingy... connected up to the telly yesterday using a HDMI cable but got youtube quality tennisa and football interviews. As said by poster above MotoGP benefits from the highest resoution that can be got. And I suspect an awful lot of the audience will be same as myself, old enough not to be used to paying through the nose for telly and immune to the advertising that goes with it. At the same time, the era of The Doctor (not that one) is coming to a close so there's less motiavtion to watch. Exit stage left...
