    Default HD channels for live sports

    hello,

    does anyone offer a service that has HD channels which offer live sports that are delivered in quality similar to that of IKS? i don't even know if that's possible, because for any iptv services i've seen the streams are not too great for live sports

    I have only been testing for a few days - but SETvnow has the best HD picture that I have seen for the IPTV channels that I watch.

    IMO I think IPGuys highly compresses their streams so that guys with a mediocre speed can still watch - so the picture quality isn't that good - same with NFPS/IKS66.
    IPTVExpress was one of the first to give us decent HD streams - then OK2 and EpicStream improved on it a little bit. CrownTV had pretty decent picture quality but that and their stability has been slipping over the past few months.

    I watched a couple of channels last night on SETvnow while I was flipping back and forth with my DreamLink T5 on the same channel and it was pretty hard to tell the difference. I was just watching on a 42" - so it may be more noticeable on a larger screen.

    EpicStream is very good picture quality - it and OK2 have been my go to streams recently - both have good picture quality and are pretty stable. I also was watching SETvnow for a while but there pricing seems to be out of whack.

    You guys make it too hard to decide LOL.............

    I'm going to have to set aside some time and do a head to head comparison and see who comes out the winner :-)

    Just bumping my original thread from a little while back. I tested ok2 on a mag254 yesterday because that was the consensus best server for live HD sports, and the quality is nowhere near fta/iks. I figured it would be a bit off, but not that much. I mean, Netflix uses streaming and the quality is quite good. Perhaps its a live vs non-live issue? I know I had my video settings at the highest on the box (1080p, 60fps) so I don't think that was a problem.

    Is there anything (server, box, etc..) that comes close to fta/iks in terms of pic quality on iptv?
