Streaming Services thread

Yeah, it's a pretty bad scenario. Disney is coming out with its own streaming service soon too. This is basically going to fragment the market again and push people to pirate content rather than pay for it.

Pretty much, yeah. Expecting people to pay 500 usd a year is just stupid.

I buy a subscription for a month after all the content I want to watch has accumulated. But yeah, I understand this might not work for everyone.
i will just keep using netflix and prime and ahem the sh*t out of everything else...

I am not able to stream most shows on hotstar properly on my LG TV app. The picture is too jerky and moves in frames.

 

Some shows like live cricket and masterchef australia are streaming fine while most others are not

 

Wrote to hotstar and they asked me to run a speedtest on a link. They are saying my Internet conenction is bsing routed through Denmark hence the playback issue. 

 

This seems wierd as some shows are running fine. Further those same shows are running fine using the same connection on my Laptop.

 

Yet Hotstar is insisting its an internet connection issue. 

 

As far as I can see lg webos only has hotstar 1.0 version app.

 

Any suggestions?

Hotstar has sh*t devs. I'm having issues with subtitles not playing for most shows, and they just said wait for an update. 

 

This was months ago. 😕

Nope. It sucks. Buy a Firestick if you want decent hotstar on LG TV. I've tried it too. Sucks big time. Literally downloaded a copy off the Internet of John wick after hotstar crashed on me

I have a VU smart TV. Initially I installed the smart TV version hotstar from TV store. It was not able to play any premium contents. Also it used to give a notification that a new version is available. So clicking on update, it took me to google play store, instead of TV store. From here, I updated the android mobile version of hotstar. Now its still not able to play premium version, but somehow its able to play VIP shows and matches too!!!

Being a premium user, I feel ripped off! I still have to use hotstar on my small mobile screen.

You have to login in the tv version and register your TV to view premium content

Trying to watch but for some reason it's not going over 480p. Checked speed in settings and I am getting full speeds but everything is playing at 480p only. Reloaded Netflix and even logged in again. 

Too many hits I guess, should have gone back to normal now.

Watched 2 episodes. They've definitely toned this down in terms of sex and violence. But the cast is phenomenal as always. 

I too watched 2 episodes and it definitely felt restrained... So far not impressed.. Even Nawaz felt meh.. lets see what happens.
