    I've got a 4k telle, just no 4k content.

    Oh shit, my mistake. I read it as you cant tell the difference between HD and 4k, not 4k and 8k. I have no experience with 8k so can't comment.

    Fox footy has no ads siren to siren, I expect Kayo to be the same. Fox advertise their cricket as no ads during play. I see no reason why they wouldn't honor that, as they have with the footy for years.

    So far so good in Kayos first big test. No dropouts or extended buffering issues for me today.

    I can only conclude that it's twice as good

    You would think these super high resolutions are only useful for very large screens.

    I've got day 2 of the test on for dad using the original Chromecast and it may as well be an illegal stream on a sketchy site. Buffering and blurry. Horrible.

    Absolutely no way is it out of beta. Stream completely stalled and had to be restarted no less than half a dozen times in an hour yesterday on a 100/40 connection

    Yep same as what I'm experiencing, contacted support & got usual it's likely your internet connection, except my phone was using mobile data & my PC the NBN, so yeah it's not me.

    You're not wrong. Like you said, my Netflix and NBA league pass is seamless this afternoon but Kayo is struggling.

    4x actually. Twice the width and twice the height.

    4k = 3840x2160
    8k = 7680x4320

    7680x4320 / 3840x2160 = 4

    Had buffering issues yesterday when briefly tried out Foxtel Cricket channel live. Not convinced now whether I subscribe when trial period up. I have enjoyed lots of non-live content though.

    Finally it is getting a real test. More people have been made aware of the service in the last few weeks and this first test has probably increased the traffic by a fair margin.
    Like anything new there will be plenty of bugs to to sort out. Hopefully by AFL 2019 it is fixed as that will really test it.

    It annoyed me watching the stanley cup finals knowing the stream was 30-60 seconds behind the actual game.

    Is a foxtel now box worth getting if you are not a foxtel subscriber?

    If you're getting buffering does it help to pause it for a few minutes and then watch it slightly delayed?

    It looks to me to be a bit like YouTube is now. It buffers just a bit but not all the way like YouTube used to be, in the good old days. In other words, I don't think it makes much difference.

    I have a 55” uhd with a good upscaling engine

    It does nothing to sd - sd is shiite and should be outlawed

    It makes 720 look a little better - similar to watching 1080p on my old 1080p

    It makes 1080p look almost as good as 4k

    4k is lovely - but with the upscaling 1080p is good enough except when it goes funny sometimes and you get graininess.

    Sport is where higher resolutions really hold their own

    Possibly. Comes with a remote, has Chromecast built in, runs Android apps I think. It was discounted for Black Friday sales.

    It's working really well for me so far. Only downside is that you can't download netflix from it's Playstore and Kayo reckons their app won't be released on it either.
