    Watching Sports etc at Home in Thailand and anywhere !

    Well I have 365Sports.tv and am pretty happy with it, buffers nicely on Windows, doesn't buffer on Android,
    10 channels, 4-5 HD, the other SD including the Golf matches so you cant see the ball !

    But not much Rugby of the Friendly Internationals, UFC comes on some times a day or two later.

    I've tried my Brother's Sky Go account over a VPN but due to 1.4Mb bandwidth resolution was pants....

    I've tried wiziwig and CrickTV on Android, didn't like the Malware (I think) it wanted to install on Windows ......but still prefer to pay for 365Sports

    Are there any better alternatives, what I'd like is some Sky Sports available here at good resolution.
    I think there are paid alternatives to 365Sports with servers in BKK that show loads of content but dont know how to get hold of 'em !

    Regards
    SL

    Ps I'll start looking again myself actually !

    I had a tinker with acestream recently and it was crystal clear..

    Its a case of you install the player, then need to find a stream before the event.. Searching acestream and ufc or acestream motogp has found them for me when I was tinkering (in fact it was the other way round, I found the stream link then tested the player).. If your sport has a stream is the question but I would think it may.

    I watch rugby live on wiziwig here on Samui...no problem with the streams...I even have simultaneous streams happening and switch between matches when two games are on at once...like the past few weeks

    it'll do me...

    I've tinkered too with ACEstream in the past will give it another shot !

    ThaiExpat is the sister company of 365Sports but mainly has the UK Terestrials channels eg BBC, ITV etc but not sports....

    ilikehd.com 350/mo, but supposedly only works in TH. I've seen plenty of rugby and cricket when going through the sports channels. Sports channels include Astro, True, BT sports, US NBC and US Fox, Setanta and more. Usually doesn't buffer as stream comes out of BKK.

    You're better with Zenmate plug in for Chrome and now also on Firefox. Works for all UK terrestrial catch ups and Netflix too. If you have Amazon Prime it wont work you need a good VPN for that

    I scramble by on a combination at the moment

    Zenmate
    VPN
    ThaiExpat TV

    I'm going to switch over to the IPTV Service my m8 has; I've seen enough of his streaming and full content

    One of the things I like about ThaiExpat and 365Sport is you login anywhere to watch it, not tied to one box/one TV ....
    But yes agreed maybe nice to have your mates Box in the Living Room ! Now thats maybe an Xmas present to me !

    Same no problem for me, I watch it all the time with Zenmate

    Note sure which browser Sleez used but I use Chrome with Zenmate. The Firefox Zenmate plugin is just a recent introduction

    UFC anyone !

    Just FYI ....

    Watch UFC 181: Early Prelims free online live video stream
    But ....Low resolution


    Acestream had Hi Res streams but in Russian !
    I tried watching one, listening to the other but 30 second difference in broadcasting, guess there maybe a delay option somewhere ...
    I used ACEplayer to watch ...where as VLC had issues although I believe they might be the same code ?!!!?

    PS Just don't believe the ads that say you need to install any media players or Java upgrades etc, cos just Malware ...
