So far streaming the Wizards/Bulls game seemlessly at 3200kbps.

I seemingly had to add an IP exception for the IP was using. Otherwise you just get a constantly loading circle on the flash player. There's a decent help section to help with flash problems as well.

So far seems worth it. I paid for a week, so for anyone thinking of it of getting it, watch this thread and I'll post my results daily.

So far the the quality you can pick...

Auto
800kbps (SD)
3200kbps (HD)

...also there's a Game Chat right there on the screen too, but that is not working right now.

To you give you an idea of the smoothness, the player functions very similar to 1080p on the YouTube players. The Bulls game is coming from Comcast Sportsnet, which I think is a local Chicago maybe? Stacy King was on the commentary panel at half time.

The Bulls game is super-wierd because they're playing in Rio, but the American commentators are in Chicago calling the game.

So far watching the first half of the game? Yes. But I would wait at least 1 day to see how the other games stream.

Okay, cool. I'm probably going to buy the 6 month package then.

its good for me. as long as you have a descent computer it should be for you aswell. i dont know about buying a long term deal with them untill they give you a good enough reason that they wont get taken down by the nba. then again the other free sites that switched to .eu havent been taken down.

I wonder how they're able to do this or how they set it up? All these HD streams and such.

Well, on their return policy it states that if they were taken down they'd give full refunds. Not sure if it's true or not, but they do state that on the website itself. Also if you buy anything longer than 1 day you can get a full refund minus a 5-10% fee within 48 hours.

Does that return policy really hold any merit though?

FYI when you stream live there's a button above the video that says "Flash Live" next to it is "Flash DVR" and you can literally click on that and watch the game from the beginning. It's basically real-time archive.

No, but at least they state something on their site.

Much better than someone on ISH just taking people's money and cutting the service off totally.
