Has anyone managed to get the live streaming working? I can't.

They had problems with the internet connection in China, I don't expect Azerbaijan to be much better. I think the Live Streaming will be much better when it's in Europe.

Emm, correct me if I'm wrong, wasn't Azerbaijan a winner & held the proceeding round in the European song contest-)
Sure they are future prospective EU members, its amazing how the border of Europe has stretched!

Qualifiers today - stream only starts 5:30am UK time tomorrow. Sounds like there's not going to be any streaming of the qualifiers this year which is a shame for sports fans.

Thats a pretty bold statement Paul, what do you base it on.

Facts such as AZE not being in Europe, or Europe being the only place capable of producing a good stream - I refer you to Briancon 2013 and the problems at the recent CWIF 2014.

IMHO your statement about Azerbaijan is totally out of order, factually incorrect and based on pretty dodgy stereotypes.

FYI the upload today was showing at 156Mb which is off the scale, the wifi for the results tablets was the strongest and most reliable I have ever seen.

No offence intended Graeme, I just trying to stop people getting discouraged from watching the coverage of the World Cup. Plus I wasn't aware that Azerbaijan is in both Europe and Asia, my apologies.

That is a very impressive upload speed.

I am aware of the method you employed to get the streaming at the CWIF, good work!
