The nerds on whirlpool were generally more positive about the resolution than that of Now. Being a beta it can only get better. I’ll wait till it’s out of beta. YouTube and a VPN provides HAL at 720 for now.Excellent news, thanks for the heads up gents.
About a month ago, I subscribed to Foxtel Now. I intended to watch it via Chrome web browser. I have a computer attached to my TV which enables this. I can also watch on my computer in the study to keep the girlfriend happy.
I was not impressed by the video quality, especially for football. The resolution is rather good (HD), but the frame rate was not. The video was a bit jerky. Rather irritating for watching football.
I invested in a Chromecast Ultra, much better result. Smoother playback. This requires running the Foxtel Now app on my phone and casting the match to the Chromecast. No big deal.
Until such time as the Kayo smart phone apps are released, I suspect the video playback for Kayo on Chrome will be the same as Foxtel Now.
It's certainly going to be better than a dodgy stream, but that's free and Kayo isn't.
14 day trial and a away game this weekend, what is there to lose?
