i dont know, if you dont have a problem playing hd videos on youtube then you shouldnt have a problem with the hq stream. tryout the "preview" on their website to see how your comp will perform.

Is it safe to give this site your cc info?? This doesn't look like a big company. Anyone did this for years and nothing ever happened???

They've been doing the NHL like this for 6 years. I gave them my info 2 weeks ago. No issues.

Just use Paypal if you're nervous.

No problem, the stream quality is better than when I was staying up late to watch games in HD on TV.

I've bought a one day stream, just to test it out. Quality looks even better than I expected. Watching Inside the NBA on demand as we speak. I'll probably get the full year deal in the new few days, this is sick.

What are your guys' internet speed?

I got 14 MBPS download speed on speedtest.net, but when I watch high quality games on ballstream.com then I get the occasional pause and load, which irritates the crap out of me, so I end up watching it in low quality so that I don't have any pausing or loading going on

How much speed am I going to need for high quality viewing? Do I need to upgrade to 30 MBPS?

Just in case this helps anyone

I was previously signed up for 15 MBPS, which is really 14 MBPS via my router when I am using the WIFI for my connection

I just upgraded to 30 MBPS, which now translates to about 26 MBPS via my router and I can now stream videos in high quality with no pauses at all - in fact, if I fast forward 30 mins etc, it loads instantly, and everything works perfectly

So 14 MBPS not quite enough for high quality without pauses, and 26 MBPS is enough if not too much

As for the site so far, the video quality is good and the games have been available so far - I can't vouch for how quickly they upload condensed games or highlights yet, however, and I do not think you can watch multiple games at once, so that is a bummer - but its cheap and the quality is great, and seems to be reliable
