    This is so good.

    Swiss open may not be the most prestigious tournament, but it gets my vote for the most technologically advanced by any standard.

    I am going to pay the cost for watching over the weekend. This is fantastic.


    Other organisers, please take note.!!!

    Same here, that's what I'm getting this morning..Last night i actually stayed up and watch the 1st or so hour of the Qualifications(from before 3 am and watched the XD and MS only) and the connection was smooth as you can get. I got bored though as these are still the Qualifications...
    Paying for the QF, SF, and Final days is not a bad idea, esp. to us fans here in the U.S. who lacks any connection to these tourneys.

    On that note, hope next month's Japan Open won't be outdone. Heck, they're arguably one of the most technologically advanced country in the world and they can't even make something similar to this effort??...

    i went into work and tried it again. it was going at full speed (331k/s).

    Japan Open historically has been behind the times when it comes to web coverage. last year was the first year where they have live scoring. years before, some guy (BF member) was doing an unofficial site updating the scores for the web audience.

    the Danes was the ones who are most ahead of times. i remember way back in the 1999 WC/SC, they were already doing live scoring via the web. i vividly remember sitting at the computer lab at school watching the numbers going up and up, jumping up at various occasions. others in the lab must think i am yet another computer nerd turned mad.

    I'm getting 331k/s, and a crisp image of a guy sweeping the floor.
    Apart from him the arena is deserted.

    The live streaming is very clear, but I get a lot of bufferings, playing for a few seconds and then froze.

    Will the paid streaming be smooth? I do not wish to have freezes every few seconds.

    My internet is 512kps.

    Default They've already stopped streaming for the day..

    and of course stopped playing(it's currently almost 2 AM in Swiss right now). If you want to catch it, it'll continue again later tonight/early morning(Canada time). Check the tournament playing time, I believe Thursday they'll start at 10 AM(Swiss Time).
    Good luck-

    How good is the reliability of the paid version?
    Any one tested yet?
    Well, I guess with the paid service, you won't get, rtm version
    of 'server has reached stream limit'
