There have been people talking about wanting to cut the cord and I used a Firestick to stream today's game to my TV with the ESPN App via Direct TV Now.
It was horrible.
(1) I missed over half a dozen plays due to the stream freezing. I have 70MBS so it is unlikely that my internet is too slow.
(2) When the game camera was zoomed out to show a large portion of the field the picture quality was very blurry to the point where I often couldn't tell where the ball was in air on passes and field goal attempts. Continually throughout the game the picture quality was changing and even pulsating, which was an eye sore. Only had HD quality when the game camera was zoomed in for some reason.
(3) Twice seemed to lose service.
(4) The ESPN app played the same commercials over and over again. I saw the "Alabama-FSU Taylor Swift" commercial at least 30 times.........I am traumatized, even teeny boppers can't take that much TS.
I am going to probably go to Dish as I can't take the constant poor quality of streaming with the ESPN app. Just thought I would share my experience as many have talked about this as a possibility.
