I used to run it off the app on my phone and through a chromecast to the TV, worked really well. Slight delay is all, maybe a minute

For the RWC, all on eir plus...

States 11 sky sports channels. No mention of BT.

Probably another subscription.

For all the banging on theyre doing about piracy and illegal streaming theyre hardly going to attract many customers with a paltry 720p / 25 FPS stream for top dollar prices when there are alternatives of 1080p 60 FPS steams right up to 4K HDR available for nothing.

Besides, NOW TV isnt meant to be a competitor to their Satellite / Subscription service, its an alternative to reach a wider market of those that cant install a dish in apartment blocks, those that travel around and can watch on the go and the likes.

This is a good deal for €70, but the regular price of €39 p/m is a rip off.

I was tempted to get this. It is great value if you are a Premier League fan. Otherwise there is very little on it. The rugby world cup will dominate the next few months and all the gaa is finished for the summer on sky, rte have the rest.

The picture quality is very good. Better than eir sports hd streaming for me.
