Watching Live Content with Show Stream

What quality is the video

We use a variety of different stream types and bitrates delivering up to HD quality.

The streams are usually 1080p in HD and at a bitrate of up to 6mbps depending on your device.

We use adaptive streaming technology so the stream may take a short while to adjust to maximum quality. Please be patient while this takes place.

Even on a fast connection, you may initially see a blurry image. The stream may take a little while to reach its highest quality. This is because we use adaptive streaming. The quality of the stream will adapt to the quality of your connection. Please be patient as the stream optimises for your specific connection.

If you are on a fast connection, the stream will continually improve until it reaches its optimum resolution. This can take up to 60 seconds.

Higher quality video uses more bandwidth than lower quality video. We recommend streaming via WiFi to reduce your mobile data usage.

Why is the stream quality poor

To watch Show Stream smoothly and without interruption, you’ll need a good internet connection.

If you are on a poor quality connection, you will receive a lower quality stream. Streams accessed via a 3G connection may be blocky or pixelated, may stop or break up.

If other devices are sharing the same internet connection, try disconnecting them, or just turn them off to see if that makes a difference.

If you’re connecting via Wi-Fi, move closer to the router or even try a wired connection to help rule out interference from another Wi-Fi network.

If the stream does not improve, refresh the web page and start again. If the problem persists, try another browser or run a speed check on your broadband connection.
