Two weeks in a row worked flawlessly. This is classic. The app is fine. All difficulties are user error

☹️ I can’t possibly be challenged?

Worked great. Used it on my bedroom TV tonight and I thought the picture was even better on my cheaper tv

Was flawless until the 450 main??

The director sucks, when the leader has a 3 second lead we dont need to watch him for 2 laps. And so much for 450 podium speeches.

Worked great last week...not so much this week.👎🏾

Worked fine for me for the second time. Sorry to hear that.

Had issues on both my Apple TV’s right before the 450 main. Had to watch on my phone 🙄.

It would work about 5 seconds, then restart to the beginning of the broadcast.

2 weeks in a row worked fine for me, I do wish the search worked better though. If I search for supercross, it gives me the 2020 season. I had to go to browse, sports, and find it there.

I work to provide for my family, I ride to keep my sanity.

No problems here. They cut about 15 seconds off of Eli's interview. Other than that, no issues.

What sucks most is that you can't pause, rewind, or fast forward out of the box, BUT, I found a work around; if I start the android app on the phone app and then Comcast to my Google TV dongle, I suddenly have the option to pause, rewind, and fast forward....

I like the frequent split screens though and the commentary seems to pay better attention on what's going on....

The app is kinda shitty to navigate, I feel like it’s luck when I stumble upon the SX link but both broadcasts have been fine so far.

Two major complaints from me though

1: not being able to rewind live broadcast.
2: not being able to listen to audio only on the mobile app. Can’t listen to race day live now since it kills my phone battery halfway through since I have to keep my screen on. RDL on the gold app allowed audio only streaming when the phone was locked, I miss that dearly.

I have an Apple TV too. There was a random / autoplay to the 2020 season in today's practice. If I didn't cancel, it would start the 2020 episode. It happened again for tonight's races. I was ready and cancelled. Sounds similar to what you ran into.

Only complaint is that you can't pause, rewind, or fast forward

I had the same exact issue. Quit the app, rebooted the Apple TV, rebooted the router. Did not fix the issue. Had to finish watching using the phone.

Same here. I noticed it during practice and was ready for it. The producer has to be the same as last year. He still sucks. On another note, the picture quality has taken a step back and it’s at mavtv level.

How much user error is involved in streaming in a browser or an app? It either works or it doesn't. This ain't 1988 where we're compiling our own code for DOS.

I have Peacock, just got it for SX. H1 race the races seemed blurry. I had two incidents of buffering during H1. H2 the races were clear, no buffering, but some pixelation.

I watched a movie on Peacock last night, it was perfect, not a single incident, but sure, user error.

Worked A+ for me once again.

Worked perfectly for me on Apple TV, nice and clear. halfway through I switched the feed to the iPad and went out to the garage, still crisp and clear and no issues.

I have 400 mbps down from my ISP.

Worked great last week too.

If others are having trouble, I don't think its on Peacock's end, because it looked sharper and clearer to me than anything I get over my Directv channels.

I have to say the peacock app is poorly designed and hard to navigate though. They need to get a new layout for sure.

Yes, I have Apple TV as well.
Last week, very clear picture, no issues.
This week, very clear picture, when it worked. Stopped working after the 250 Main.

Restarted the app, didn't help.
Powered down Apple TV, rebooted, it worked for a while.

Watched the 450 Main on my phone.

Worked perfect for me. Forward, backwards, pause whenever I wanted to. NBCSN.

I don't like that I can't rewatch shit. It's a basic function for all streaming platforms. Feels weird not being able to.

Worked flawless for me.

Hey it’s $20 for the season ffs!

Keep buffering on my android tv. Had to exit the program and reopen it and it would run fine a while. Have a 12mbs connection so don't think it was my connection.

Worked great on my PS4 and Roku tv.

That’s what happened to me.
