OK you lot. Mrs C is a bit of a footy fan. The club shall not be named, but the deal is that, as a season ticket holder, she gets free access to live, streamed home matches.

As an experiment I bought a cheap Airplay stick to allow her to put it on the big screen. And she can. Problems are
  1. Motion is not smooth. This was the same issue when we watched the Suzanne Vega concert the other week.
  2. Colour is a bit **** as well.
So would spending more help this? If so, recommendations?

NB the wifi is fine, happily running at 60M download and 20M upload. The internet line is 200M, again, with no issues. The colour and motion on the laptop screen is just fine.
TIA

I watched the Mersey Derby today on it and Bolton Oldham (don't start) and was spot on.

40 quid for a year, Apple TV, not perfect but Sky can fook right off......

The broadcast steam is rubbish. Doesn’t matter how your internet connection works, or will always be ****.

Not really helpful on the grounds that the stream isn't (AFAIK) available on Apple TV.....
