I requested a trial, but the URL is timing out, whether I use the SmartIPTV app on my TV or VLC on my laptop.

I've emailed them for support, let's see.

nevermind, looks like stupid Afrihost has blocked their IP. #wtf

So I used my cellphone to download the M3U list via MTN, and loaded it on my TV manually, and now the channels are loading

F1 in HD is looking good, no lag or buffering so far

Good service, but:

- only one set of F1 channels (UK), so no fall-back in case of issues with Sky Sports UK
- quite a bit of buffering during the F1 qualifying

Got a trial account today -
No issues seen on F1 Qualifying, Man U vs SH, and Ireland vs Wales seems good. Noted some freezing on BBC Food channel, but it lasted about 10 secs, and never saw it again. Not enough time to fully test I suppose, but for R170.00 I guess I can take a shot for September and see how we end up.

This is what I see when I search for sky sports f1
Yes, that's my point - only UK channels for F1.

What if Sky UK goes down in the middle of the race?

With some other providers, they also have Sky Italy, Spain, etc., so multiple fallback options.

But that is alot of backup channels for UK, so if the main one goes down they is a HD one that will work, but the streams are highly reliable I watched the F1 on Sunday with no issues etc.

I will speak to him about that as that is a very good option. Will tell him to add the Italy country to he's package.
