That was a mistake. I wanted to post a short vid of a channel playing from USTV 247, but the file kind is not allowed.
Anyway here is what I am experiencing at present. I booted up USTV 247 and clicked on AMC and everything played perfectly. Then I went to a known channel (A&E) where they prompt you to use a VPN. So I totally backed out of USTV 247 and booted up my Proton to a USA server. Then I went back into USTV 247 and clicked on A&E. It came on instantly and played normally for about 15 seconds. Then the buffering started, and its been buffering on and of on that channel for quite awhile. Could be it is Friday with a lot of extra traffic going on. It could be that Proton dropped my speed down to 32Mbps. Closing Proton my speed is 924Mbps. Proton drops my speed HUGELY!
Bottom line, USTV 247 works perfectly if I don’t use Proton. It will work randomly with using Proton on some channels. I would like to test it out with a more quality VPN service to compare results more.
Without Proton the channels that play will play as good as if it were a Concrap feed!
Btw, the other night I played the same channels that required a VPN and they all played very well , with little no buffering. Today they load up but buffer quite a bit, but without Proton the channels that load all played well. I will test it out later on tonight and see if the traffic has slowed down any.
This app is a head scratcher because there is no rhyme nor reason why some channels require a vpn but most don’t. Espn won’t play without a vpn, but ESPN2 will. HBO won’t play without a vpn, but Cimemax will. Fox Sports won’t, Fox Sport 2 will. I would say there are over 100 channels and about 85% will play without a vpn.
I still think this is a keeper. Maybe when I get a better vpn like Nord (which happens to be the one they sell) or Express. Then I will test more thoroughly by tweaking servers and settings within the vpn. The free Proton one I am very limited as to what I can do. To be honest this Proton only gives you 3 countries (US, Japan, Netherlands) and only 9 servers in the USA to choose from, and they don’t even tell you where they are located! LOL
