A great day for football lovers!

This was the first time I attempted to watch something in Ultra High Definition via the BBC iPlayer.
While the picture was out of the world it did freeze from time to time so in the end I switched back to watch it on regular HD on BBC.
This technology is clearly not there 100 per cent yet.

The game wasn't terrific but Uruguay deserved their win.

What internet speeds do you get?

I find Netflix on UHD is superb, only uses about 8mbs.

Ive got fast internet, speed checker is giving its speed at 108 mbs at this moment in time. I think there might be an issue at the BBC end, they did say they would have to throttle the number of users who could watch the football concurrently in UHDTV and I suspect that there might have been more people watching it then their hardware can accommodate properly. Thought that is my laymans guess. I will try it again for some other games they broadcast in UHDTV, I think they said that all the games the BBC were broadcasting would be in UHDTV on the iPlayer.

Im pretty still new to this UHDTV stuff, I only got the new telly last weekend !!

Agree there Inn, Egypt tried to park the bus, in the last 8-9 mins.

Rarely a good idea.
