^ ditto. I got into the weeds. If you use a fire stick and install facebook it should work just fine unless you have poor internet.

Each person could have x device, y, connection, x.2 firmware. You could be using a iPad, Iphone, Android, Mac, Windows 7 desktop, Roku, etc. You could have a user with no space left on their device and not quite enough memory so it's jittery at best. You could have another program running eating up memory causing the stream to read/write to the hard drive for swap space and causing a bad experience. That's where TV was better. It just worked. We'll be shunning a decent size of the population that still wants that, or better yet needs that, as they don't have the know how or drive to figure it all out.

Case in point: I tried to watch the Middle Tennessee game on the Facebook video app on my Samsung TV. Unwatchable. On my cell phone it was choppy, and on my laptop it was almost flawless. It's difficult to cast from an Apple device without Apple TV — there is an app, Video Cast I think it's called, that lets you cast if it can pick up the stream, but that's hit or miss.

Might break down and cut the cord to get Direct TV Now, since it apparently comes with a free current-gen Apple TV.


I use chrome cast with my iPhone all the time. Picture quality is unbelievable

Chromecast is on the money.

Agree, but some feeds cannot be cast. For instance, Stadium's website feed cannot be cast. When they run it on FB, that video can be cast, but the regular site cannot.

If you are using Chrome you should be able to cast it no matter what. You can also cast from your phone (worst case scenario) by casting your entire screen if the site/app does not offer Chromecast integration. It can be a bit annoying because you can't use your phone for anything else when you do that, but it does work.

They dont have the same standards for a viewer as Neilsen. They should not be compared.

Yeah, the viewer counter at the top never read more than 2K as far as I saw, the LT was more like 1.4K for a high. Unless I'm understanding it wrong and it was in hundreds of thousands then the number in this article seem hard to believe.

It would be nice if Harry would back up his words with real data. Maybe there is a measurable way to compare both. Seems like he should do that research before making this news - makes him seem sensationalized and buzzfeedish. Not something we want HM to be associated with.
