Amazon Prime Chargers Game has Issues

I don't know if its just me, but the game doesn't look high def, is jerky (tiny pauses) and is poorly lit. Ran a speed test and it came up as107 mbps so that's not the issue. Is anyone else having these problems?

The commercials look ok.

Okay, thanks. I don't know what the problem is. Prime video usually looks great. Watched The Rings of Power episodes and they were beautiful. YouTube TV live streams are crisp, as well. It's just this game. 😄

Game looked fine to me even when I had Prime Vision on. Game screen was still big enough to enjoy the game.

Went back later and tried it after the game was over and it looked fine with no problems. For some reason, I was having a problem with live streaming it. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Quality depends on your device- the app on my NVidia Shield looks as good as live TV- proper frame rate, noticing some very slight glitches when the camera changes shots but not very obvious.

Using the Chromecast feature on the same unit gives you just half the frame rate, and I canít access any of this stuff through the Kodi app which is preferred whenever possible. Hopefully thatís being worked on, as it wonít play any of the free-with-ads movies either.

Also plays great using Airplay, which will keep their rating info and other crap from being overlayed. Oddly it passes 5.1 sound from the football game, while it only passes 2-channel (and 1080 video) from movies and shows. They must be using different servers for these hence why you canít get them on the Kodi app.

Go to the Thursday Night Football section under the Sports tab and there's a Watch Replay National Broadcast button.

Played great live on my Apple TV box, but I did read a LOT of complains about the audio being out of synch from others (I didn't have any issues).
