Is Eurosport Player worth getting?



  • Todays Paris-Nice has tipped it for me, I must get British Eurosport, however I live out in the sticks in Wales with a poor broadband (approx 0.5 Mb/s) what's my best alternative? sign up to Sky proper and get a dish? any help much appreciated.

    Having lived for many years in an area when we had to bounce a rebro signal off another rebro and then lead it to the house in a Heath Robinson fashion (AND pay for a TV licence for the pleasure) and had an internet connection that was dire, I would opt for the actual dish.

    I too am after a method of watching some of the tours, and also the track championship in the winter months, and avidly do not want to subscribe to Sky.

    If you are in an area than can get it why not go for Virgin Media? I upgraded to a Tivo box before Christmas and am pleased with it. I can record 2 channels at the same time - which I was hoping to do for P-N and T-A but they seem to be following this year!!

    I've gone for the monthly sub and it's playing out good so far.
    Quality via hdmi to the TV is pretty good and altho not on super fast broadband, its coping well.
    I got slightly fed up with the freeebie casts with their iffy quality and pop up ads.
    The only slight minus is that Silverlight not ready for Android... and I have my doubts that Microsoft are going to bother with a version, seeing as Google is getting to be quite a competitor.... any techhead with an inside track?
