    Noticed this and been watching it. Picture quality ok but watching the match least night kept buffering every few minutes which spoilt the viewing. I have 55mb connection coming in so either my ISP throttling or there was an issue with sky. Any one had

    Had the same thing, was wondering if was due to still being on copper for broadband however guess as you have about 3 x my connection and still seeing it as well then wasn't my broadband connection.

    60meg virgin line here and it was buffering a LOT while watching it

    Nice to have the content but has definitely put me off ever spending £9.99 to watch it for 24hrs

    Have been using now t.v. since the beta trial

    The Liverpool game was buffering for a few sec every few mins

    30Meg VM broadband.....I thought it was the Apple t.v. trying to 'push' through a live sat broadcast.....didnt have that problem with earlier games via macbook

    Glad I saw this. Been considering Now TV but only have 5 Meg download.
    You can get the Box plus any five days of Sports subscription for 34.99 but sounds like they have problems.

    I'm on the same broadband and started watching the Leeds v Leicester game on my Apple TV on Saturday but gave up because of the buffering issues. The picture quality was also quite poor.

    I've got one of the Now TV boxes and I've not had any buffering problems at all watching Sky Movies. I think it must be a problem with the Apple TV app.
