    Having lost most of my free sport on the skybox I've been starting to play around with kodi on my Windows 10 PC. It's up and running and I've managed to get Skysports with the Pegasus add on. Unfortunately though it's very jerky and not really watchable. My broadband is giving me around 6 Megabit/sec so I'm wondering if that's the reason. It is always enough to give on demand viewing with my smart tv though.
    The problem with Pegasus is there doesn't seem to be any way to reduce the resolution so that it doesn't need as good a data speed.
    If anyone can offer any advice/tips/suggestions then I'd be very grateful.

    Disclaimer: don't know Pegasus.

    6mb should be ok to watch with. Just.
    Any free live channels will glitch and freeze in my opinion that's why so many people get subscriptions.

    Thanks for the reply.
    So when you talk about subscription do you mean IPTV?
    Presumably it would then make more sense to get a decent box to use it through?

    I have a old pc in the living room to watch stuff on. It works great. Can't handle HEVC like my crappy little android box but is great for streaming.

    Suggest you try a few tests and see if it makes a difference coming from a proper source.

    I've still to get a box but will probably get a Mag.
    I'm not asking for prices on a subscription yet but as a general rule what should I be paying for a reliable service?

    You could try out mobdro using an android emulator on your pc. Not going to cost anything to test out. The problem you may find is when the channels are in demand i.e 3pm Saturday you'll find that channels can be hit and miss.

    Paradox is a good build ive got it on my windows 10 pc with their paid iptv for £9 a month the thing with the builds with kodi depends how many are streaming at the same time and most addons work with that build but you need to create an account to use it
