Hockey Night In Canada

Hey all

I was just wondering if anyone else is having problems with watching hockey from CBC on there Playbook.

Last year i watched lots of games and i tried a few times this year and its so jumpy its just not watchable.

Has anyone else experienced this?

You are not missing much. Toronto fans are waving signs that say, "Please..... In my Lifetime". And Sid the Kid has a broken jaw. That's it! Can't help with the jumping screen.

Re: Hockey Night In Canada

I just checked on the afternoon game, Philadelphia against I don't know whom, You are correct, jerky picture. However all the commercials were crystal clear. I suspect CBC is using some cheap, crappy data compression program to stream the hockey. I will check the Toronto game tonight to see if the fans are still sitting there with paper bags over their heads. Are these bags standard issue when you buy a Leaf's ticket or do you bring your own?

I just went to the CBC Website regarding the choppy streaming. Check out the link here.
