Default Rate Bangladeshlive.net Webcast

BDLive bro, this is by no means intend to offend you. What you are doing is GREAT. but this poll is about "how" are you doing at this great project you took. it should give you some honest feedback of your work. that way you will know where you wanted to be and where you are.

please vote on a scale of 1-10 (one being the worst and 10 being the best) of Bangladeshlive.net's game time performance. if you want, explain why you vote for that.

I haven't seen a Bangladesh Live Stream but 140Kbps seems too lower quality to bother with to be honest.

If you are that desperate to watch cricket on the net, you use Willow TV

I think its great, I have cable internet and the buffering happens very infrequently and the picture quality is great and very clear. I even connected my laptop to my television via s-video cable and watched the match on tv and it was as clear. THANK YOU BANGLADESHIIVE you have provided me and my friends who watch the matches with me a lot of fun and entertainment.

Agent a better question would have been whehter the streaming buffers a lot or not.

Your rating is totally subjective.... what will you know from that?? If I give let's say 5 - what does that mean. Is it ok or is it not ok.

Come on man...what's wrong with you?

Hence I decided not to vote in this poll

I think he is right. WHy will we rate BDlive. They are doing a great job by providing us free broadcast and we should appreciate it. Therefore I Gave 10 rating.

I think Willow TV charges you a lot of money for each game.

I just love bangladeshlive.net.

I am in USA, and I guess we use bangladeshlive.net the most. My brother is also a cricket fan & he played briefly in BD league in the late 80s. I sent him the link last time and he was really impressed by the quality.

However, I think the bufferring can be improved though, sometimes it gets stuck. All in all, I will give A++++++++ to bangladeshlive.net.

May be next time around the quality would be hard to beat!

I stayed up late at night during last game and to see Aftab batting live was priceless!!!!

It doesnt matter how fast the speed is. cause he is providing the stream live and free. which is a great job. No one did that before. and in the past ppl tried to make money of providing low quality webcam cast. but this dude is doing a great job.

Keep it up Bangladeshlive bro..

Agent bro, I think its not fair to rate this guy. He is above all these rating crap. Cause he is doing it for free and live and he putting his time, money and effort for livecast. We all should appreciate this. and if you still want a rating .. i will give A+++ , or 100 or whatever the best is...

Is it legal?

I am sure BDLive would have to do an agreement with the main broadcaster (for this case Sky and Channel 4) to show the footage.

I am not sure an expensive service like Sky would be too happy with their footage going out for free, that being if it available to people in the UK which I believe it is.

No, I think people have every right to know whether a service is legal or not, which this one clearly is not.

I pay 40 a month for the Sky service.

For my post to have an affect someone would have to come onto these forums, and if they did that they would see the BangladeshLive adverts anyway.

Technically, it should be illegal. But it doesn't matter really, since the targeted audience is not supposed to be Sky/Channel 4 audience and these guys aren't making any money from this service.

Yea but the fact is that people pay a lot of money to recieve Sky Sports, and Sky make a lot of money from broadcasting it to their customers.

I doubt finding out someone is broadcasting it free without there discretion will go down well.

If that is the case I think the sticky thread at the top of the forum advertising BangladeshLive should go don't you think?
