Hi all,
Wasn't sure which category to post this on......

I have Sky freesat.

I am an avid NBA baketball fan and want to catch more than the one game a week being offered by Channel 5, i was looking at live streamed games from the U.S and saw a pc package call Satellite TV for PC and PPtv.us (plus millions of others) does anyone know if these are worth the money/any good/work?

Thanks for any help.
Andy

Most of these streams can be found without paying anything, just takes a bit of searching, but as already said, the quality leaves something to be desired.

For one thing - DO NOT PAY FOR NET STREAMS, they are freely avaliable and any attempt to make you pay is a scam. As others have said, the quality if lower (sometimes terrible) compared to tv, but for infrequent viewing (and considering its free), it ok generally. Looking for 'SopCast' should lead you in the right direction.

If you the ability to invest in proper equipment, live NBA coverage is widely avaliable on many pay tv service with English commentary included. Any know a good package for NBA? I'd suspect NOVA Greece, Digital+ Spain and Premiere Germany are good (due to high quality domestic competition in those countries) , but I really have no concrete idea on that.
