NBL.TV exposed

Struggling with NBL.TV with constant buffering etc like others.

Now been watching NBA League Pass since season opener in HD quality with no buffering, perfect quality (same internet connection). NBL isn't even HD yet chokes. What a POS!!!

And $$$ behind NBA vs NBL!

Still to date I haven't had a issue with NBL.TV and have tuned in to a good 80%+ of games.

I dont know how many threads we need about this. Seriously, some people have trouble, some dont. If you have trouble ring the supplier and tell them, putting it here when so many dont have trouble is pointless and just continues the 15 other threads.

Comparing the two is insane. One is in its infancy.

lads it's frustrating when it don't work, i get that.
here is the tip - download the latest version of your web browser.
i was using an old version of safari on my mac and that shit was black screening me all over the place. i downloaded google chrome and now my whole life is sunshine.

Funny how the company is named Perform when it is non-performing. I have NBA League Pass open and NBL.TV open at the same time watching live games to test. NBA League Pass streams perfectly in HD with no buffering and NBL.TV is auto-calibrating to a lower resolution and/or buffering. So my connection can handle it and has enough bandwidth it is something on the Perform side of things. They seem to be a two-bit UK company compared to Neulion who do the NBA, NFL, NHL etc. which I never have any bad viewing experiences with.

Also the system isn't new as Perform already provided the same platform for Euroleague and other competitions last season. The existing infrastructure is there yet they are obviously doing something wrong.

People without a problem probably have higher connections but those with mid level speeds are suffering even though if you launch HD from any other source with such a speed it is fine like NBA as mentioned above. This is non-HD yet buffers. WTF! Very disappointing.

Also to those people without a problem just because you don't have one doesn't mean a problem doesn't exist.

At the moment it works for me but only at crappy 0.28mbps... oh wait at 0.28 it just buffered again. Horrible. This is in Firefox/IE/Chrome.

The wonders of the internet hey! It's all different on different computers.

Performs system is new this year, they used a different system in previous years. Seems NBA is having issues as well so its hard to put the finger on this one. FWIW NBL runs fine for me.
