They were slapped w/a cease/desist a bit ago, and things were trending downhill. It's back w/an update that's been working well past few days. When it's working, it's easily the best streaming app out there.

I sometimes have problems getting clean streams on Sports Devil.

We don't have time to watch much tv, cut cable off last summer (saving $138/mo) and went w/Player's Klub an IPTV (internet provider tv) for $5/mo. It's currently populating around 2000 HD channels and continues to impress.

As far as sports are concerned, it has ALL the US professional games (NFL ticket, NHL center ice, MLB, NBA, etc and pay-per-view). I've watched a bunch of NFL ticket games this year w/fantastic stream quality and zero buffering issues. I also watched the McGregor/Mayweather fight w/only a bit of buffering. It has all the ESPN channels, Pac-12 network, SEC network, Big-10 network, etc. If a game/sport is being broadcast somewhere, chances are you can find it on PK.

We also picked up a couple of over the air HD antennas for local news and games televised via major networks. The quality has been great too.

My only regret is that we didn't do it sooner!

Downloaded Neptune Rising a couple days ago and it seems to be pulling good streams so far.

Odd it'll scan and maybe come up with only a couple of streams but if I back out and do it again it finds 40+

Tried to install Neptune Rising last night but I kept getting the "failed to install a dependency" error. Resorted to Poseidon and it's working pretty great so far. Fewer sources but completely fixed my buffering issues. Thanks everyone. :pint:

Yea I've been having trouble with buffering and disconnects with Covenant but I'll give one of these other options a try. Thanks for the suggestions.

did you purchase a preinstalled firestick from ebay? I'm looking to get ome, any leads on where to start?
Just wondering why would you go for a pre-installed FireStick by paying almost double money :shock: . I have it and honestly, it doesn't take more than an hour to install Kodi as well as popular Addons.

Needle, s to say even if you buy one preinstalled, anything go wrong later, you would have to do the reinstallation yourself, so why not just buy unmodified firestick and do whatever you want :wink:

PS: It is just my opinion, many may not agree.
