Give the Red Zone Channel a try. At least on the "To Go" app on my phone, it is streaming the Fox pregame show.

On my PS3, the RZC is switching between NFLN, Fox and commercials. Somewhat disconcerting.
post #423 of 688
Mine too. Not to mention the picture looks standard definition. Is there an option to set it to HD somewhere I am missing? Sure would be nice if they played the pregames in HD so I could watch them instead of switching back and forth to cable. Just checked and the FOX HD feed on cable is running in standard def too so it may be a network problem.

Fox only produces their pregame in SD. Not a network problem per se.

If NFLN looks like standard Def, then there's an issue. Because they definitely produce all their stuff in HD.

LOL Fox its 2011 already! Time to upgrade.

Good Luck to everyone who took the Pioneer steps, and will tell us how this worked this weekend, plus in the future.

Please post your providers(cable/DSL/FIOS), speed, and connection(wired/wireless), you are using.

It will help sissy's like the rest of us who don't want to plunk down $340 for this(or don't need to) service, until we find out how it looks.

And if there are major problems, it is the apps fault, not your ISP. The app then is the culprit.

Good Luck.

I can confirm it's still only one stream at a time per account.

I tried logging into To-Go on the PS3 with my PC already logged in and I got a error message that said I had to log out of the other session.


DirecTV with ST + To-Go (PS3, PC & Android)

Not getting anything right now. Red Zone channel won't play, waiting for the games to start. As a frustrated user of the NHL PS3 app, I am a bit pessimistic, given what we have seen so far. I am expecting a lot of dropouts, etc. Though I am sure the teams at NFL/directv are working their butts off today, and likely their constraints aren't technical aptitude, but the amount of money the suits are willing to part with to make it happen.

If the massive pixelation during any scene movement on fox PGS is any indication, this thread is about to get really long.
post #431 of 688
I see nothing at all. It says the video is not available at this time.
post #432 of 688
I finally got the picture to come up and so far it doesn't look half bad on my 120" projection screen. I imagine things will get really screwed up at some point but a good start.
post #433 of 688
Is anybody else getting a bizarre mix of video right now? It's going from the 9/11 tribute back to pre-game show and commercials. I feel like I have Alzheimer's watching this feed right now. The quality of the feed seems to be pretty good but there is the occasional 2-3 second freeze.
post #434 of 688
The quality of the feed looks like **** to me compared to FIOS. Also it is stopping and pixellating randomly. Is there a setting to turn on High Def for this application? There's NO WAY this is 1080i.
post #435 of 688
The feed has just gone full retard. Quality is crap and its hopping all around. I think I am about 3 plays behind now, but not sure.
post #436 of 688
I have yet to see an HD feed anywhere for this application. VERY disappointed.
post #437 of 688
TRYING to watch the Bears-Falcons game. Stream is crap and it keeps cutting off every few minutes to "Frank's Picks" during the Fox pre-grame show. Verified 15mbp/s download speed here, it's not my internet provider. If it continues like this I wonder what the chances for a refund are. I'd rather listen to the game on Sirius at this rate.

So, how is the feed?
post #439 of 688
Awful. Just awful. I am going back to cable. I want my money back. Not once have I seen 1080i video and it is flipping in and out at will. I have 30mbps download to my PS3 so the bottleneck is certainly upstream from here.

I am getting the same thing. I am a frequent lurker but signed up for AVSforums specifically to find out if anyone else is having the same problem!

May end up issuing a chargeback if the 2nd week is this bad.

Edit: I have verizon fios at about 15mbps. Also, now the Houston/Indy game is just showing not available at this time.
post #441 of 688
I picture some Cisco guy adding several DS3's to this connection right now or this is going to be a MASSIVE FAIL.

Stream is crap on the PS3. However, the stream on my iPad is just as bad today. Must be problems with ST to go service in general.
post #443 of 688
I think the satellite side is having problems also. I was at a sports bar and the feed froze. I called another bar and they said ST is down. My brother in another city said the bar he was at had the same problem.
post #444 of 688
Yes my FIOS cable service is having issues as well (though not as many). It may be an internet bandwidth or feed issue. Football generally looks like crap everywhere right now.

Satellite here and am having ZERO issues on Redzone channel, or 3 of the other games I'm constantly switching back and forth to.

I imagine Sony is just feeding through the feed it gets from DTV. Last year this exact same thing happened with ST to go, yet DTV never once offered any sort of compensation. They can't go out of business fast enough for my liking.
post #447 of 688
Unfortunately this sounds exactly how Direct TVs Sunday Ticket to go offering started out last season as well.

They did get their act together after a month or so but i know thats little consolation to you guys trying watch today. Hopefully if enough people let them know how bad this is working they will do something about it.
post #448 of 688
Just spoke with DirecTV, the rep confirmed they are having widespread issues with the PS3 feed and the website was well (greyed out streaming button). She said they are working on it, but it's widespread.

Same here...zero issues on DirecTV (satellite, not on-line).
