    I was expecting the quality to be drastically different but from the little bit of the football I watched, it wasn't really impressive. I assume it's still being tested.

    Thanks, I found it. On the web portal it is labelled "915" instead of "R&D"

    Like you, I see no difference but @DeanoBlado did specifically say the semi-final's and final, so I will wait for those to see if anything changes.

    I got a blank screen with audio only on Chrome and IE. I assume it's a codec issue. Got it to work intermittently on Edge - the few minutes that I saw was amazing. Much better than the satellite broadcast by far. May invest in a media box to test again.

    Watching the replay now. So pretty!

    I'm borrowing my uncle's login. If he's watching the match tonight, I should be able to watch it as well, yes?

    Don't know about how it was on the Android App's but the stream DSTV Now stream buckled under the pressure last night

    R&D/Channel 915 showed a black screen with audio only for me just like @Sybawoods experienced. Windows 10/7, Chrome/Firefox/Edge/Dolphin didn't matter. Can't be a codec bandwidth issue because I tried my superfast LTE connection as well and that had the same issue, also can't be a codec issue because the two PC's I used play everything 4k, HEVC, 10-bit HDR etc

    Might get a Mi Box again to test it in the future but for now DSTV Now while sometimes providing a better picture doesn't have the reliability of the satellite broadcasts so I will watch the WC Final the old fashioned way.

    I have a Mi Box and the R&D stream also showed black (and no audio) and popped me back into the menu structure. This happened again, and then on the third attempt I saw the picture. It was fine for a little bit and then stopped and went back to the menu structure again. I ended up watching it on the standard channel, which obviously looked bad in comparison R&D stream.
