NBL TV Live

Don't know if anyone has noticed since the NBL hasn't announced it but NBL TV is live and up, successfully signed up for free with the Telstra offer, 2015 app has been updated and looks a lot more improved and easily to use, started a classic game in only a couple of moments after picking one, haven't checked out website yet, but a telstra tv app launched on October 5 as seen on Telstra website, great news so far!

Kobe r u sure ur not the issue??

I had no problems with the abc stream, watched almost every game n nbl tv has worked perfectly for me. I have watched 3 full classic games with no issue over the past day.

I dont have any fancy internet connection or computer either.

Maybe the problem is ur set up not the nbl.

So maybe check that stuff before complaining n blaming the nbl for ur problems.

N if ur convinced its the nbl its simple unsubscribe n move on

It works just fine for everyone else so im gonna say it's not the nbls fault if it dont work for u

What is the website's address?

I won't be signing up until they officially launch it just in case it takes my money and doesn't fully register.

The ABC stream worked great for me despite having a shitty connection and the two times it did buffer or whatever knowing it was probably my connection just kept refreshing the page until it started working properly.

Is it just me or is the resolution for last season's grand final isn't crystal clear?

There's nothing available to members that isn't available to the general public, no.

Just sat through Calvin Talford's debut, and it was difficult to do at 12fps. Switched over to the Slingers-Wildcats game afterwards, and that doesn't look like it's much better.

I spoke too soon regarding the resolution. The classic I was viewing at the time was 1280x720, but others seem to max out at 960x540. Standard definition DVDs are 1050x576.

They'd have to completely re-encode the videos to improve the quality, it's an issue with the source not with the streaming. I have no idea what's behind the frame-rate issues but they seem more likely to occur during the digitisation process than during the encoding process, which means starting completely from scratch for those games.

In addition to that, everything from 2004-2008 or so is 16:9 footage squashed down to 4:3 then pillarboxed back to 16:9.

I'd rate it a solid D- thus far. Nowhere near the catalog we were promised and the digitisation process appears to have been done by someone who doesn't understand video. Portions of the 1979 grand final are interlaced.

I wouldn't be critical of the catalogue yet, but the quality of the videos won't improve because they've already been digitised and I suspect the NBL won't re-digitise them in a better way with someone more competent if Koberulz is accurate about the technical aspects

I haven't had a look yet, but from what kr says it sounds like the deinterlacing might have been done in the wrong order for some games, which shouldn't be a big deal to fix up.

Personally I think the NBL would have been better off releasing a good product than a completed library. We're not going to watch every game ever in the first month. Plus I think it would only help, rather than hinder, if the start of each week of this season saw the NBL unveil another batch of historical games for us to watch. It really shouldn't be up to users to discover that some games haven't been digitised correctly.

I don't think so. The Bullets-Devils game is missing at least every second frame, possible more. They're not in the wrong order, the information just isn't there. At all.

The Slingers-Wildcats game is similar, except it happens every few seconds instead of every frame. It'll pause, then skip ahead a bit.

The 1979 grand final consists of at least two sources, which have presumably been combined to cover serious defects in the main source. One was deinterlaced, one wasn't.

Add to that the countless games that have been squashed down to the wrong aspect ratio, the random resolutions and bitrates, the overwhelming amounts of compression on most of them...it's awful. I've been holding off on watching my DVDs on the assumption a lot of that footage would be on NBL TV in better quality, and it turns out my DVDs are actually better than what NBL TV is serving up, despite starting from inferior sources. And almost none of it is on NBL TV anyway, despite the claims of 'every grand final' and 'hundreds of games'.

There are currently 89 selections in the 'classics' section, not all of which are games at all. It was never specified whether it would be every game from every grand final or just the deciders, but operating on the more forgiving assumption, the following are missing:
1981
1983
1986
1990
1991
1994
1995
1996
1998

2008
2009
2010
2011
2012
2013
2014
2015
2016

1994, 2003 and 2009 have game one available and nothing else. The rest aren't available at all.

And sure, it hasn't been announced yet, but so what? It's available, you can sign up and sign in and watch games. You can't really say at this point that it hasn't launched.

You seem to be struggling with the fact that it hasn't been launched yet and it was always known they would add classic games in dribs and drabs.

If it isn't officially launched, it cannot yet be seen as a finished product. There are people working on the app and website service as we speak to make sure it works well.

If it matters so much to you, there is an email address given to you when sign up and you can ask these questions of them. Otherwise you're whining over something that isn't even finished yet.

How much more launched can it get than being available for people to subscribe to and having footage on it? It just hasn't been announced. It's been advertised, and promoted, and is available and there are countless people on Facebook trying to get help with signing up or signing in who are clearly under the impression it's good to go, as they should be.

Yes, it wasn't going to launch with the entire archive, but they said every grand final would be available and that it would launch with hundreds of games. Neither is the case.

There are people working on the app and website service as we speak to make sure it works well.
And they're going to fix what, exactly? There are still sign-in issues on iOS, from what I can tell, but other than that it all works in terms of the app and website. The problem is either the digitisation process, or the encoding process. Or possibly they were incompetent enough that those were both done in the same process.

Either way, the only way it's going to be fixed is to take down the problem videos (which is every single one I've watched thus far to one degree or another) and completely re-do them. That will take years.

but take into account the footage of some classic games is 20+ years old, so its not going to look as good as a 2016 hd game
Of course it's not. But these aren't analog issues, these are digital issues. The footage available on NBL TV is significantly lower in quality than the original tapes would have been.

I have a DVD collection of old NBL games that goes back to the 80s. All sourced from VHS. NBL TV would have had access to far better-quality 1-inch and BetaCam tapes, and digital originals for games from the mid-2000s onward. And yet my collection looks better.

My collection looks vastly worse, however, than archival footage from the NFL, NBA and WWE. Because they started with the higher-quality tapes and then digitised and encoded them competently.

No.

So it's officially launched now, and they've added game one of the 2012 grand final. Still missing the rest of what I listed, plus the Rob Rose game-winner that was used to advertise NBL TV.

It does, however, have the biggest winning margin in NZ Breakers history, which I'm sure interests precisely zero people.

Meanwhile, great games in NBL history that aren't present:
Game one, 1986 grand final
Game two, Cairns vs NZ grand finals
Quadruple overtime
Perth vs Sydney, November 2002 - Goorj said at the time it was the best NBL game he'd ever seen
The Bullets and Cats go to 4OT
Al Green scores 71
Reg Biddings scores 63 in a 40-minute game with no three-point line
Goulding scores 50 in a 40-minute game
Ian Davies drops 13 threes
John Dorge gets 14 blocks
Damon Lowery gets 3 free-throws
The Tigers and Titans go to OT as the Titans bleed everywhere in 1999/00
Andrew Vlahov kills Mark Dickel
Game two from the 2006 grand final
Bobby Locke gets 50 on debut
The 2008 grand final
Mark Davis screwing Darryl Pearce out of a 50-point game

And that's just the ones I can think of. Obviously there might be footage availability issues with some of those, but most should be on there.

I purchased it last night, not sure if how or when team members will get the free pass.

Watched a couple of 1990's classics. Worked great on browser and also from iPad onto TV via Airplay.

Didn't have any buffering issues.

Found a couple of little usability issues that could be ironed out you'd assume.

Current Season schedule is in reverse order, this weeks Rd 1 games are the last ones displayed.

Also when first searching for classic games i showed none. It wasn't until i selected teams did it show any. It'd be much better off showing everything, then allowing users to filter out.

I noticed the date was the date added to the system, not the date of the game.

Yeah, you can only browse the classics on the desktop site (although as mentioned previously, the Kings-Crocs game doesn't show up for some reason). You can only filter by season on the app.

The 2008 grand final has been resized for no apparent reason, meaning the scoreboard gets cut off by the bottom of the screen.

Kobe makes some valid points about the NBL TV product, I have to agree with his statements.

Really very few of us would accept this level of service from another provider.

Perhaps its because we've become so accustomed to the NBL'sbeing the NBL that we have come to accept this as the norm.

What's to say I haven't also contacted the NBL?

The service is still being developed. There are already 100 classic games on there with more to come.
There were 88 items in the classics section at launch, not all of which were games. They've added four since then.

And it really doesn't matter whether the service is still being developed. The games were digitised years ago. That's not an ongoing process. They are what they are at this point. And what they are in some cases is horrendously compressed, and missing scoreboard graphics. In the case of the 2008 grand final they've actually gone out of their way to ruin it.

There are plenty that are just from bad sources, too. Compare the 1994 grand final with the 1987 grand final. The former is an excellent-quality source ruined by compression, the latter is a poor-quality source being done no favours by compression.

Which is not to say it's automatically acceptable. If I had the tape they've used for the 1987 grand final I could come up with a much better result than they have. It takes time and effort, sure, but it's worth doing.

The price of the subscription is irrelevant. At least a large number of these games were digitised long before NBL TV - even the first version - came into existence. There's no 'premium' option that includes things like DVD-resolution footage and score overlays. And more care should have been taken during the digitisation process. This is the league's history, it deserves far better treatment.

I'm pretty IT literate, and last night the site and App had me going around in circles for about 45 minutes before I eventually gave up. Credentials not being accepted, password resets not working, interstitial popups from Cleeng, then finally the Telstra code I believe hidden behind an ad, meaning I couldn't get to see the redemption code to claim it. A total balls-up.

All communication thus far is being ignored.

Excellent. I make the rash assumption that it'll be the same for all clubs. Nothing like a last minute mail-out!

It's a neat ploy, really. Anyone super keen for the archival stuff or wanting to make sure they're sorted for game one has to pay the five bucks, but they still get the uptake provided by the free passes for members.

No new content in the past few days, which is a little disappointing. The fact that neither game quality nor video quality seems to have factored into their decision-making thus far also makes it impossible to guess whether or not certain games will make an appearance in the future, which is frustrating.

...The 1979 Hawks vs Bullets game has a random TV show recorded over part of the tape.

When I go to the Wildcats vs Bullets game, I get "Content Unavailable." "Sorry you aren't entitled to view this video." I thought you get all games for one club (in my case the Wildcats) for free? Or is it just not working because it's still a while before the game starts?

Yeah, I get that a lot.

Seems like a strange error message though, because it tries to get me to sign up for a subscription (implying that I don't have access rather than I'm just too early).

100% useless. Can't get it to work on Smart TV, Phone or PC. Live scores etc work, but nothing live.

NBL TV is working pretty well for me. I've got a poor connection so the game fluctuates between crystal clear and slightly blurry and other than a few seconds of buffering halfway through the 2nd quarter it's very good.

Definitely looks more like an NBA production in terms of type of camera, the angles, graphics. Just something about it looks like a game from the U.S. when you see it from full court angles.

Need to see more stats for a player right after scoring, rebounding, blocking, etc. if they can fit it in just above the score.

Just need to fix the test talking from the commentators and get better during breaks.

The 2001 Kings vs Crocs game and the 1993 grand final look great. That's the sort of quality I was expecting all - or at least most - games to be.

At least some Season ticket holders got their pass codes! Still nothing from the 36ers.

I did get a response to my inquiry yesterday afternoon though. "We have received information from the NBL this morning and we are currently in the process of putting together the details including the code and will be emailing all our members as soon as possible."
They also admitted the flow of communication on their behalf was not up to scratch, but of course they still didn't tweet or email out the status to their members in response. Just telling me was clearly enough.

I guess they're still suffering from a severe lack of administrative staff down at HQ if they can't organise a mail merge over the course of a day.

Jut received my pass from the 36ers and logged in successfully.

Currently watching the ABC replay of the game against Melbourne using Edge as browser and casting to my TV over Ethernet. The picture is brilliant!! Excellent definition.

Can't watch tonight's Hawks game live so looking forward to the replay tomorrow.

So where do you get support for NBLTV to solve the inability to get it to work?

When I asked Guy Neville on Twitter if they'd be using VHS sources, because AFAIK the original broadcast tapes no longer existed, he replied that he looked forward to me being pleasantly surprised.

The 1991 grand final is the same horrible blurry mess that's been floating around between various collectors for years, although thankfully they've used the version from the Six Championships DVD that combines it with better-quality footage for large parts of the game.

The 2008 grand final is still stretched vertically so the scoreboard gets cut off by the bottom of the screen. How does that even happen?

Add game two of the 2014 grand final to the list of squashed-and-pillarboxed games.

That and the 2013 grand final also have the One HD logo in the corner, so they're clearly just someone's home recordings.
