    I was told about sportsmania last year and signed up for it, streams perfect for me, nvidia shield tv & hardwired, and ppv is brilliant.
    You can install an app called matrix tv browser, select sportsmaia.eu as the server and watch it on the go.
    Just a heads up ;)
    Detailed instructions on how to install Sportsmania - not used the repo myself

    It's a good service but not perfect of course. Good value so far although I find the IOS app is less reliable for watching footy on than running on Kodi, which is a pity.

    Really hoped this would be better than the usual stuff out there.
    I bought a 6 monther for 26 and cant get it to work mostly on my android phone.
    it either reports an error or does nothing,pity.
    I installed kodi on my sly box to watch therebut theres no sound and the picture is in slow motion.
    Ill keep with it for now as its already paid but have to say im not very impressed at all

    My first post of "well impressed" was a bit premature as it didnt take long to give me problems....ah well.
    Its a small world,but i wouldnt want to paint it!....Chic Murray

    I'm surprised that it isn't working, gruntfuttock. By 'slybox' do you mean 'Skybox'? I have found that I get the best results overall from an Android TV box - it may be worth the investment. This one for example is only 34.14 (delivered) and it has good reviews:

    Frankly, these kind of things only work well on a decent dedicated Android box (2gb ram + 16gb storage) with a decent processor and if possible a wired ethernet connection. The web browser works ok on a PC or Mac in my experience. I pay for SKY and BT here but the online streams are far better than BT & Sky's own streams on some Sportsmania & Ultimatemania channels. And of course I can watch footy on Saturday at 3pm.

    But ... there is some buffering occasionally and not all the channels work all the time although these guys provide plenty (tens) of alternative feeds so you will not miss a match. My advice is abandon IOS, Android phones etc and invest in a 'Kodi' TV box with a keyboard. I find I can watch Netflix, BBC iplayer, Amazon etc on it as well as these Repos and I think something interesting will emerge out of this as Kodi becomes mainstream. I fear for Sky in particular though as 80 per month is insanely expensive. I choose to pay because I want to support content creators but Kodi will soon lead to the evolution of a Netflix for live sport - or else trouble is looming, just like it did when Napster killed the record shops.

    Anyway - buy a dedicated Android TV box!

    Just my 2 pence worth but McKtv sports plus offers a similar service for 3 a month, join the Facebook group of the same name and voila! He has an Android app similar to Perfect Player so you dont even need Kodi.

    I have a raspberry Pi 3, Apple Ipad2, Minix Mini Pc and a desktop. It works on all of them perfectly with no buffer. In the 4 weeks I have had it, it has buffered once. I just changed links. I only grabbed a month but I'm going to grab a year. On the ipad app, it has never stuttered or buffered once. What's you internet speed? Have you tried the HQ or SD feeds?

    I used my android phone connected to my fibre broadband speed of 23mb.
    I tried both sd and hd.
    It was good for a day then the buffering and error messages appeared.
    I tried it on my slybox but it was worse.
    Mind you,i cast my phone to my tv to try and watch it,ill have to look into it more as that might be the cause.

    By slybox i meant an enigma2 type box.

    Please try clearing your cache as well, I get streaming issues on my android phone if I don't regularly clear my cache after using the app for a few hours. Rarely get buffering or quality issues if I stream via my android tv box.

    Did that,ive notice now on my phone it takes about 1 to 2 minuits for a station to appear,although when it does its a good picture.
    The thing is,it only connects for a short time then goes back to the previous screen.
    Thanks to all for your advice ,always appreciated.

    What application are you using to view on your phone? Have you read the FAQ on their website? - you need mx player or the matrix tv browser for mobile viewing. Have you logged in on a PC, all the streams are instant on and in perfect HD, I check via a pc if my kodi addon gives me an error which it has once. I just cleared the cache. Also, join the mania facebook page for instant support, if you log on with an issue and the board is quiet, you know it's you or your isp. Buffering is never down to them by the way.

    Make sure you keep on top of the updates and stuff otherwise it will soon stop working altogether. If you keep everything up to date it will keep working a treat.
