    Not sure about my internet speed but it's the second from the best they offer. Only the NFL on Fox was freezing. Been watching other programs for a few hours with no problems. Actually loving it so far

    I cut the cord almost three years ago and it's the best thing I ever did. Someone I know ;) says Usenet Newsgroups along with SABNZBD, and Sonar you'll never miss a show and the best thing is with a fast internet service or like my Gigabit ISP you can download a 3GB TV show in HD in less than 30 seconds

    I've also heard a lot of people still talking about how Kodi and IPTV but I find it to be garbage. It rarely works right, you constantly have to look for new servers, its more frustration that it's worth.

    Good to hear man like i said I have tried everything and this is the best. If Sony had any brains they would advertise more and make a killing.

    Did you try Hulu live? That's the only other thing I'm looking at. Also I have a one inch black space between the picture and the edge of the screen. Do you have this problem with PSvue?

    Do you personally use kodi yourself?
    I'm curious, do you personally use Kodi with IPTV add ons for live channels right now? I started using Kodi/XBMC 3 years ago and initally it was a great option for live TV. Over the last couple years I've find it to be all but worthless (for TV). No matter what add on my experience is most the channels don't work, and most you time is spent changing and trying to find new servers, and when you do you're lucky if they work well for a few days.

    I know there are some closed servers that require you to sign up and pay a monthly fee ranging in all different prices, which I've never attempted. But giving illegitament companies my credit card number for services I don't know if I'll ever receive wasn't a risk I decided to attempt.

    Kodi is a great media player, you're better of to use software like Sonar, and use a newsgroup to handle your downloads with SABNZBD.

    I don't know why anyone would worry about 10$ a month for Netflix. I love that site still. No complaints from me whatsoever.

    With IPTV you just get another app to use. They provide you with login credentials.

    Like USENET newsgroups? Welcome to 1991! Let me see if I can compile the newest version of the BSD threaded news reader on my SGI workstation.

    Do you always make off the cuff comments about things you've got no knowledge about? With Newsgroup/Usenet I can download any Movie or and TV show 15 minutes after it airs at 60 megabytes per second (and no I don't mean megabits). I download full HD 3 GB 1080i TV show in about 1 minutes and don't bother with a VPN. Why don't you take 10 minutes to look and read about something next time so you don't look like an ass next time!

    Relax. i just make random comments sometimes. I didn't know USENET was still active. In fact i only found sherdog through alt.ufc --- which started out as an IT tech group but was taken over by 10 or 12 MMA fans.

    What is the group for streaming/downloads? The last i saw of USENET, google was keeping it alive through 'google groups'.
