Having native Chromecast makes it interesting. The only sports I’d really want it for is Formula 1 & watching Sydney FC & Middlesbrough in the football & if Boro go up I wouldn’t be able to see them on Foxtel anyway. The A-league I can stream for free anyway because I’m with Telstra & I can subscribe to Boro games fairly cheaply through them. That leaves only F1 who already have there own streaming app, we’re mostly locked out of it in Australia due to existing contracts but it sounds like we won’t be when it comes up for renegotiation
I have a Kayo-related update that I thought I’d report back about.
I’ve had a Gen 1 Chromecast for years (the stick version, before they became hockey pucks) and as much as I’ve liked the existence of Kayo, its streaming performance while on chromecast has been pretty poor. The game stutters and buffers reasonably often - more than enough to be frustrating, and on the way to unwatchable.
Today I decided to buy myself a(nother) Christmas present, and upgraded to the latest (non-Ultra) Chromecast. I’ve watched the first half of the F3 derby without it buffering once, which is a first for me for a live Kayo stream.
Fingers crossed, I think I’ve solved my streaming issues.
Recently moved house and have much faster wifi than before. So Kayo works heaps better than at the old place, proper HD picture quality the whole time which is great, but the sound & vision are always 0.5 to 1 second out of sync.
Doesn’t bother too much during games, but it’s annoying as hell during interviews or panel discussion when words are out of time with peoples mouths moving. Any ideas? Does this happen to everyone else as well?
FWIW: fast NBN wifi, 5G frequency, casting Kayo direct from iPhone to a Sony smart TV.
