Liski, is there any chance UBI can increase the bitrate on the Setanta feed, the picture gets quite pixilated on fast moving scenes. Especially noticable on big screen tv's.

There was a widescreen rugby match this morning broadcast on setanta, and i think this UBI box does not support widescreen properly or they are not receiving the widescreen transmission.The setanta logo is half cut off because the pic cant extend any further. I have tried every option on the ubi box to make it wide broadcast but no luck.
Now im guessing the euro 2008 wont be in widescreen either while the SBS will have it in wide and decent quality.

My issues with paying for setanta:

- No widescreen on selected matches cropped to 4:3 with logo half cut off
- Picture gets very pixilated on fast moving action, the channel needs more bitrate pumped into it
- The UBI box only supports composite output which is a letdown if you are watching on a big screen tv since the signal is compressed so much. I think at least component outputs on UBI boxes would be a big improvement.

Check whether you can get Setanta direct? Also availble on D2. I think its also $14.95.

That isn't available either if your in an Austar area as per there website...

" OTHER SATELLITE customers

If you do not subscribe to Foxtel, you can subscribe to SETANTA SPORTS by purchasing your own satellite equipment and paying a monthly subscription. For more information call 1300 AAACOM (22 22 66). This service is available on the Optus B3 satellite.

Please note: this service is not available to customers in Austar areas. "

Lazer i am aware of all that as it has been posted how many times i can read!!, i am asking Liski as a UBI REP to forward this management, the people in austar areas such as my self will stilll have to fork out extra cash if its either opening an austar account or opening a setanta sports account, when it could come thru the UBI, plus sign up fees , sendout signal fees this that its just bullshit...

I understand your frustration but if Setanta themselves can't sell subscriptions in Austar areas what chance does UBI have....?

crazy_turk,

Your question has been answered and there is nothing else to say. The only way to get Setanta Sports in an Austar area is through Austar.

Is there a minimum time you have to subscribe to Setanta Sports, considering it is simply a sole channel?

For example, what if after the first month you're not impressed with the service? etc

There is another way to watch Just EURO 2008 instead of paying $14.95 for UBI. There is a Live stream on the net you can watch live matches with 365k per sec which will give you a reasnable picture infact similar to setanta as we already had some commints about the picture quality. I really agree with you that we should'nt pay 14.95 and we're already paying 60.00. Nothing beats TARBS!!! I remember TARBS added Disney channel for $5.95 I know this is nothing to do with UBI because this is how much setanta is offering but if you compare the price with the picture sorry im not paying 14.95 to get an internet tv quality.

Hi Liski
I have checked on Setanta's website and they are not broadcasting the Turkey vs Checkoslovakia match live, does this mean that ATV will be able to broadcast the match live? Can you please confirm this for all the Turkish soccer fans

Setanta hold the rights to the Euro2008

So even though they dont show it live doesn't mean someone else can doesn't work like that...
