When I tried it to watch the cricket wc it was crap, lagging and freezing every 5 mins. Others had no prob with it apparently, maybe it's better now they've sorted their servers out. Kayo is a superior platform for similar $ imo, never had a prob with it.
Ahhh sheeiitt, I don't want a bar of that.. Are you in Aussie or do you use a VPN to use Kayo?

By all accounts the Spark streaming service is much better than Sky's two streaming offerings (SkyGo and Sky Sport Now) - I guess the issue for a many is paying two subscriptions.
This is where the people who constantly bag Sky aren't seeing the bigger picture. Yes Sky should of improved their offering and looked at their pricing model. But it has been a central location for all sport. To steal a business term for outsourcing or centralising suppliers it's one throat to choke if something goes wrong.

At the moment it's not as bad with two players in the market. Still it is another service to add subscriptions to along with Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime, Neon.

Life is more convenient now with more entertainment or sport available to us but it is also more expensive.

The only problem I have with sky is the 1 screen per game. That sucks. I could easily split the bill with a mate but would hate to get kicked off if we both watch nrl

I really like Spark Sport and am glad there is some competition now.

Before Spark Sport came along Sky Go was dooooog shit. Quality dropped all the time, frozen all the time, it sucked.

Having Spark Sport doing good live streaming of sport made Sky pull their thumbs out.

I would also rather have one good service that was affordable. But without competition you get 1 service that isnt good or affordable.

I will buy the spark sport package for RLWC. Would love to see how it rates against Sky go. Can multiple screens watch the same game?

See this is an immediate turn off. Man Kayo is so much better. You can have multiple screens/devices watch the same game. I don’t get what the nz sports streaming services are on.
Oh agreed. I sent them that feedback previosuly.

International ones are starting to clamp downa bit with Netflix looking at new tiers ot be fair. But yeah my assesment of it being good was in comparrison to Sky being shit haha.
