Default Dilma TV rocks

I have seen first day of the second test, without problem and today so far no issue. We have gave them some flakes in the one days and first test , but I think they have fixed all the issues now. So credit should be given when due. Nice one dilmatv.com, lot cheaper than willow.

ibnul bhai, have you seen the one day series? have you u seen the beginning of the first test? After such horrible performance, if they do good for a day or two there is nothing to get excited about. I wonder why you are so happy with them?

Only reason its probably working properly now is because not too many people watching this test. They have enough bandwidth to feed the current load. If everyone comes in and starts to watch, it will be dead again

Dilma most robably uses Shared Bandwidth for source stream. Whenever the B/W is shared .... quality will flactuate dramatically.

Along with that, I guess thier per-user allocated B/W is also below par.

So far, the quality is great for second test...... my question is, don't they know how many people they can provide the stream with? If they do, then how can bandwidth be a issue? Unless they are selling it to more people than they suppose to.....

I think they can't broadcast with full 350kbs or less speed while there are so many people watching ! Sometimes it's working fine.

I am afraid this may be the case. The second test, 2nd day, first two sessions were alright. Didn't watch the 3rd session, but I have had enough of Dilma TV. The ODIs were horrible.

During the ODIs it was not their bandwith that was a problem. It was the feed they were getting from star sports, that was bad. They probably have addressed that problem and at the same time that problem can come back again anytime without their intention to bring it back. Willow TV suffered the same problem.

I thought willowtv had same problem during ODI and initially in 1st test. When Willow became good, Dilma became good too. So, was it a problem of overselling or was it a problem with the streaming source?

my case exactly. i reported it to them, and they said they detected concurrent login form my account. i didnt share my account with anyone. to make sure that nobody hacked into my account, i changed my password 4 times. and yes, you guessed it. its still doing it.

never again. my 'nera matha' has suffered enough. no more 'bel tola' with dilmatv. EVER. even if they offer it for free.

3rd day first session, dilmatv is back to buffering problems. It is very hard for these guys to provide quality service for a while.

Dilma Rocks! (yes, in a sarcastic way)

Dilma was cheap, and they provided cheap service. I wasn't able to watch any of the one day matches, and I don't think anybody was. For test matches, I had either a slide show, or I had to be tired of pressing "Click Here" every other minute.

I would never ever shop there!

i haven't had a problem with dilmatv for the entire 2nd test and haven't had any buffering at all. credit where credits due. and a mate of mine had willow.tv and he had same problems as we experienced on dilmatv, so please people get your facts right prior to criticising dilmatv. yes, it has been crappy at times, but that's the source star sports issue, not dilmatv or will.tv.

Comparison between Dilma and Willow [I bought both when there was problem in 1st ODI]

Money issue :
Dilma - $18; Willow - $49

Problem period :
Dilma/Willow both - Problem untill 1st half of 3rd ODI & 1st hour of 1st Test

Communicating while problem :
Dilma - "We are aware of it. We are working on it with our source. If we can't solve, we'll return your money."
Willow - "There's no problem from our end. We provide quality service and never refund"

Refreshing needed in 2nd/3rd test :
Dilma - You need to click start again and again every 15 minute to avoid buffering. You need to close the browser and start over in every hour.
Willow - Runs smoothly without any need to refresh

Its you to decide, which way to go.

Good post faridpur Chicago!!!!


Their pricing for some recent series.
England vs India (3 test and 7 ODI) - $20
PAK vs Srilanka (2 test and 3 ODI) - $15.50
whereas they charged $18.99 for the BD -Sl series (2 test and 3 ODI).

This biased pricing really pissed me off.
