Hopefully playon is has gotten better then it was back in 2013 when I had it. 480p streams if the links worked at all. Found it totally unreliable. Much like Kodi which I tried last year and sucked!

I get around 4.2-4 Mbps via the advanced dev tool on my firetv devices. On my PS3 it states 5.2Mbps but looks softer then the Firetv. Directv Now ranges from 6.2-6.4Mbps on my Firetv.
