Live Streaming 36ers vs Crocs

Does anyone know anything about the live streaming?

I registered for what I thought was tonight's game only to find I have paid for the game against Townsville game on 30 Jan 2010.
Is there a typo with regard to the date?
Is tonight's game being live streamed?
Only an answering m/c when I rang the Dome.
Someone, please enlighten me.

Thanks

Try dropping the club an email and maybe give them another buzz, perhaps you selected the wrong event when purchasing not sure?

Going by the schedule looks like all Townsville home games will be web streamed as well and 1 Tigers (vs Crocs) home game.

Hopefully it takes off across the league and some sort of Full League pass and your Team (all game and just away game) passes could be setup.

RivusTV is the provider, so try contacting them. The club gave me the wrong game code to put up which has now been fixed. Hopefully Rivus can transfer your purchase to tonight's game.

Sounds like this streaming thing might not be too bad!
I just checked with them and apparently the PS3 will be able to stream this which is great news coz instead of watching on a 23" computer monitor i'll be able to watch it in the home thearte on the big screen!
Better go and get some beers and throw them in the fridge!!!!!!!!!!

moose, good to hear. Thought I was going to have to track you down and give you $5 to cover for the error! Glad to hear a few people are going to give it a shot. Boti's plugged the live stream in the newspaper and DJ Rod says it got a mention in the Townsville Bulletin too.

Keep an ear out for commentator Adam who has posted on Hoops for a few years now.

Hey I'm guessing the answer is probably 'no' but for those who have used this service, is there any chance they replay it after the live game has finished? (Like NBA League Pass does?)

I'd like to pay my $5 and tune in tonight, but there isn't much point if I can only watch it live, because I don't get home until after 9pm!

Heya Beantown, mentioned in another thread.
No replay at this stage only live. But Isaac hinted at a possible inclusion in the future.

Considering the game starts 5pm Perth time, us fans in the West sure would like the ability to have a 24 hour window to watch the game online.

Looking forward to a free viewing of the next game and perhaps an apology from whoever set it up - get it working before you publicise it as the best thing since sliced bread. Grrrrrrr. I'm with Jay-Jay Manners - had people over to watch this as well.

ROFL TR.

Saw the last minute of the first quarter and all of the qtr time break was smooth but the start of second qtr - jacob? inbounding was just a freeze frame than black ever since as the sixers rattled off a 14-2 start to the 2nd qtr...

Hopefully they can get it working a lot better before they put up the next game.

Yet to get my $5 worth so the Sixers better win by 7+ so that bet covers the cost ;)

Have been in touch with the guys in Adelaide, they are having trouble with their Internet connection - even the live stats is freezing sometimes.

We will refund all payments from tonight or transfer to another game. Please contact us.

Tomorrow night from Melbourne v Townsville.

We streamed the final of the Eastern Football League in Melbourne two weeks ago using a wireless card with 735 people watching, no problems at all.

We use the Akamai network of servers who handle about 25% of the worlds internet traffic which has handled over 2 million viewers at one event so there will never be a problem there.

I will speak to the club later tonight and find out what they have done different to last week as the filming and commentary are great. Whole system relies on stable dedicated broadband line for best results, I suspect they have numerous people on the same connection.

I can really see the potential in all this and think it will assist in basketball continuing in the right direction.

Just some teething problems, and they are probably overwhelmed by the people wanting to view the stream.

I enjoyed my dump this morning as it was the only quite time I got all morning, except for the chic in the female toilet farting like a elephant, so keep my fiver.

i know it depends on individuals broadband connections but if it was working properly would it still be as stop and go as it is with the constant freezing????

plus upscaling it through a PS3 on a 50" plasma at full screen will the picture improve on what it is now (not very good) when it is working correctly??

It is not effected by the number of people watching, only one signal is sent up to the servers then distributed. The connection to the internet is vital at the broadcast end.

They have obviously lowered the quality of the stream to guarantee it continues, I will know more in an hour or so.

Great finish by the way!

Just hearing Gilchrist's game winner via audio was worth the $5....

Thanks for the time and input John.
Hopefully things get fixed up where-ever the problem lies.

As it is a truly welcome idea.

Whilst I am dissapointed I barely got to see any BBall for my $5 I am looking forward to improvements and hopefully as you say some hassle free viewing in the future.

By the stats the 3rd quarter was terrible, lucky to scrape out the win. But a wins a win. PHEW!

"In the NBL one man shouldn't destroy a team of 5 like Homicide did."

It was painful wasn't it - the sad thing is, up until half time we were going OK with defending him.

After half time, he just exploded and got into the lane at will - and was able to get a look most of the time, and the Sixers seemed to just be shellshocked.

Homicide is all class when he gets going. Was putting up some amazing shots, and everything was dropping. Couldn't really do much more to stop him except stop him getting opportunities in transition by getting the ball to drop at the other end.

A few teething problems early and stream a little stagnant in stages however it's definitely an idea for the sixers to persist with, got real potential. Commentators were great, brought real excitement to the call down the stretch.

Hey I'm all for the Live Stream idea - even the $5 doesn't faze me at all... disappointed and frustrating tonight, YES, but i got more than i would have without it.

Hopefully I can cash in my refund for tomorrow nite in Melb.

If that isn't possible, I say we replay the game on another date when the stream is working properly - nil all! I'm going to have nightmares or Lisch & Gilchrist for a while :(

Paul, I agree the transition d was far from good, but the best way to prevent it is to make them get it out of the bottom of the net at the other end.

I am not sure that picking up Williams earlier was part of the gameplan. He will just blow by you and you will get burnt. He is ONLY dangerous whilst in the lane, which is I am sure why the focus was on his inside game. Clearly, it didn't work. After the game Ninnis seemed to still be scratching his head as to what could be done that would work.

I was at the game so didn't use it, but I for away games sounds like a good idea, so who is doing the camera work ?, I was so focused on the game I didn't see any cameras there, what was the camera work like ?, did it look unprofessional or was it good ?

Rivus have been quick to respond to the problem and have offered free access to tonights tigers vs crocs stream. I'm happy with that and I'm sure all the crocs fans that paid last night will be happy to. But can imagine there would be some sixers fans not overly impressed.

Hopefully last nights hiccups are resolved and we can enjoy some NBL streamed online. Thanks again to all working in the background to get this up and running, is very much appreciated by the interstate fans.
