Question for the techies


#1041

RTE has blocked Hola on the Player. No Irish pub near here (not a bad thing all told)

Give me another option to watch a stream of the hurling on Sunday?


#1042

GAA Go, it’s only a tenner to buy the match.


#1043

Mobdro if you have an android phone


#1044

Besides screening netflix on your tv is apple tv worth it?


#1045

I’d say no.

Have a look at the Amazon Firestick


#1046

#1047

Would one of those yokes be better than a firestick?


#1048

I believe so. Bit more grunt to run applications. I use mine for Kodi and other streaming applications

android is a lot more open as regards getting applications on it too


#1049

I just need to get one app on it.


#1050

overkill for that alright.


#1051

I need it to run right. That is all


#1052

yup


#1053

Is the amazon FireStick worth getting - 25 quid on amazon prime sale.


#1054

@The_Selfish_Giant is the man to advise on this.

At that price though I’d say it’s well worth it


#1055

Can I get IPTV on it


#1056

Yes yes and yes

Talk to @Copper_pipe and his man

Iptv ,movies and alexia


#1057

It would work out cheaper for you, if you bought the firestick yourself and then get on to the guy for IPTV @TheUlteriorMotive

He’ll give you the instructions to setup the IPTV then


#1058

But…

The firestick runs on WiFi where as the box can take a direct ethernet feed from the router.

If you have a strong WiFi signal then it’s a non issue but a wired feed would pose less connection issues down the road.


#1059

Bingo. Top bombing.

Firestick has decent WiFi and you can also buy an Ethernet adapter for about a 10er if you needed it.
