Bloomberg streaming problem


[link to this post]
 
Anyone else having issues watching the live stream on Bloomberg TV? Getting constant buffering on both Sky Broadband and Three 3G connection.

Cheers.

They seem to have three sites. Which one? I just looked at the US one, and looking at a downstream monitor it was dreadful. I didn't get to the point of it showing anything in the video window.

Thanks for the reply. I usually run the US stream as Europe seems to have a laggy picture for me, though it does actually work.

Guess they're having issues.

Tried again. Took about 3 minutes to get to the 10-second advert. Followed bt a static picture of a presenter and speech only.

Now shoing three stock prices and a message saying "Your program will resume momentarily". Hmmmm. I wonder if they mean "In a short while". I'd rather it returned long-term smile. Still showing that - a long moment.

Now showing a po-faced stock analyst, and a speech-only interview with him.

Been away. Just tried it. Almost instantly into the advert, then a few seconds of video of a chap talking, then it froze with message Bufferingand I got bored.

Download monitor was showing initial 5Mbps or so, (I'm on full speed FTTC), dropping rapidly to 2Mbps then effectively zilch.

Same here (and same as Bob, 80/20 FTTC)

On the MacBook it managed about 30 seconds of video, on the iMac less than 5, both using Opera.

If I connect to a US vpn and select the European stream, it's fine smile

Asia stream works that way too
