Problem is, they gave me 30fps 3000kbps. 60fps hockey is the gold standard. ESPN and NHL GC also had terrible encoding, with blocky frames and bad colors. How is hockeystreams in terms of quality? Does it give 60fps on all games, or just some? Is the 3500kbps also for all games, or again just some.
From their site:
up to 60 FPS
up to 720p HD (60 FPS)
I'm not as clear on the technical aspects, but the games look almost as good as they did in HD on MSG last season. I upgraded from a 40" to a 60" over the summer, and that may be why the visuals aren't as crisp -- that kind of screen estate really needs 1080p.
