You guys need to move out of Australia. The international version is excellent.
Is that WatchAFL?

I'd cancel AFL live and get that instead... except apparently telstra dont do refunds.... asshats

Resolution was fine earlier in the preseason but its dogs bollocks now. Half the time i can barely make out the ball

They've massively turned down the bit rate this year, it's a joke. Used to be OK to stream onto my TV, now I can barely watch it on my phone.

This is the biggest heap of horseshit that I have ever seen, unacceptable vision from a so-called communications specialists. Thank goodness those Telstra donkeys only signed me up for a weekly plan rather that the annual subscription that I asked for, I can bail any time. Do you have to pay for an international subscription?

Complain and you'll get try rest your internet, force stop app, Uninstall and reinstall app, restart phone, get closer to router

None of which will work
Yeah me too. Almost unwatchable. I can stream HD netflix no worries, but not on this BS app. It used to be half decent last year. WTF has happened??

Just noticed when Live Pass is streaming a channel 7 game with commercial breaks the friggen ads are crystal clear and then when play resumes it reverts to pixelated footage.

Unacceptable. Will be cancelling tonight and i urge everyone else to do the same. Its the only way these pricks will sit up and take notice.

I signed up for a week on an apple subscription then cancelled. But for the last two weeks when I’ve opened the app it says ‘we cannot find your subscription- have a free 24 hour pass’

Hope that continues all season.

I tried mirroring from my iPhone to my Mac via an app I downloaded but when I try i get an error message saying ‘recording not allowed.’ Any way round this?

I watched a full game in Denver on WatchAFL and it was awesome.

Anyone attempted to use a USB-C to HDMI adaptor to get AFL Live Pass from android phone to TV?

Does it work or does the app prevent it?

Need to get it on a bigger screen!!!!

I can get mine to play through one of my TVs. It's a very specific set of circumstances though that not that many will have. Bit reluctant to post it on a forum or they might block this method too! Or is that paranoid?

Ive done the USB to HDMI trick in the past without too many issues on my S5...Havnt got the updated cable for my S10 yet.

Screen Mirroring doesnt work at all, sadly.

Not paranoid at all. I would be certain that Telstra monitor this place. You would be surprised how far reaching this place is. Last year I innocently posted some trade news in the trade thread on the dogs forum that was mentioned to my brother from a club great. Lo and behold 2 days later I get a call from my brother demanding I take it down. Said club great not happy. Clearly people lurk around here.

Its almost like the internet is an open source, widely accessible resource!

I have the Live pass app as a Telstra customer. It’s fine for the phone or iPad. I can confirm the WatchAFL service is pretty cool. Overseas rellos have it, you can watch every game live, with pause and rewind, or watch them on demand, and all Fox footy shows live or on demand (360, Open Mike, On the Couch etc.). I think it’s $189 a year. I’ve never had Fox but it seems like it’s the Fox footy channel with all games. Does rely on having good internet speed to watch in good quality.

I don’t know all of the various AFL subscription models in Aus, but WatchAFL seems like a reasonably priced streamlined footy-only package, and perhaps something the AFL should consider doing in Aus in some form or another rather than having people finding their own creative ways to avoid paying for what seem like crap services here. Or services that are good, but are bundled with other stuff that we don’t want.

Perhaps I’m being naive, but if you price something reasonably, make it reliable and easy to use, remove unnecessary content or packaging with other sports/content that is seemingly there to justify higher prices, more people would subscribe to it legally.

Even the option of club-only packages - Geelong games only for example for cheaper.

Kayo is $25 per month and doesn't have a contract.

You pay for 7 months of the footy season and you're paying less than $189 a year.

I tried signing up for Kayo but if you live in NZ you have to have an Australian number and...Yeah, I cant be arsed dealing with setting one up when the AFL Live pass is $5 a week and working well enough.
