Bandwidth Connectivity Requirements
For best results a minimum 2mbps internet connection is suggested for SD while 4mbps + for HD, as always more is better.The system will work on slower lines but viewing experience may be affected and high quality channels will not display correctly. Please note some ISP's apply shaping and other bandwidth management practices that can affect streaming quality and stability and is out of our control. Be sure to ask your ISP about this before signing up. 3/4G can also work but please be aware of the charges from your mobile operator and performance is subject to their network conditions at the location where you are connecting from.
PC, Mac Compatibility
PC and Mac supported. Chrome browser suggested for best performance. Press F11 on PC to make your browser full screen for the best viewing experience
System supports all the latest Android Versions from 4.4.2 upwards. Please ensure you have the Desktop View DISABLED however on some devices you may need to enable this settings if it does not work. This is due to differences in Android versions and browsers. In some devices the native browser may not respond correctly if so please run all phone updates and test, failing that download Chrome browser for android and try it, this has been seen to help in these situations. . For older Android versions that are Flash supported you will need to install Adobe Flash Player on your device by following this link from Adobe. Please note officially we only support Android KitKat versions and upwards due to the many software and hardware issues and lack of streaming support from Android.
Safari is supported however we do suggest using Chrome on your Ipad/Iphone. Ipad requires uses to click Play Now to start channels playing. All other devices will auto play.
System has been tested on LG Smart TV with OS 04.25.02 and 04.22.25 via the native browser. There is one known issue that has been picked up which sees the video rolling on wrongly shaped on the display. By either making the browser full screen or browser view again and back to full screen this resets the built in browser. This bug has been reported to LG and we are awaiting their feedback. Testing on Samsung Smart TV's so far has shown the inability to make the browser full screen. This is a Samsung browser issue. Once we have more information on this this support page will be updated.
