FAQ
- Does this work outside of the UK?
- Yes, this is a streaming website that works anywhere

- Why do we recommend you install the repo instead of manual install?
- By installing the repo, any new releases will automatically be picked up and pushed to XBMC and ask you to update the add-on!
- This will cut out the hassle coming to the thread for updates and manually uninstalling/installing the plugin!

- Why choose this over myp2p.eu and other football streaming sites?
- Its all down to preference, although this site is very stable, cheap, and not in high demand as the free websites are, thus better playback

- What is the price of this?
- The plugin is absolutely free (as always!), however, FlashSportStreams requires a minimum payment of £5.99 for 1 month, or £39.99 for 1 year!

- Why is the plugin playing streams at 4:3?
- XBMC by default does this, at the moment we cannot force 16:9, streams are in 16:9 so to fix this do the following:
- Settings -> Video -> Display 4:3 videos as Stretch 16:9

Bugs/feature requests
Please use the development thread to report bugs or to request features and to give ideas, located HERE.

When reporting a bug make sure that you turn on debugging in the script and in XBMC and include:

- A debug log
- A description of how to reproduce the bug
- XBMC revision
- Platform (XBOX/Linux/Windows/Mac)

Known Issues
none

Special Thanks
To mortstar for adding this plugin to his repo, without his repo it would be a pain for users updating the plugin as new releases come along! cheers mate!

Changelog
Version 1.0.0
- Site login and authentication.
- Basic playback of Channel 1 - 8.
- Automatic Scraping of RTMP Feeds.

Woohoo.
I have been patiently waiting for this for what seems like an age - following the progress on the development thread.
Thanks for all your work, both of you - on this and liveonline footy! Big Grin

Got to say I love LOF but am intrigued as to how these compare. Looks as though they have more content - is that correct? Are the streams comparable in quality to LOF? Thanks in advance.

The biggest difference is that all of the Sky Sports channels are on 22 - 24 hours a day. The stream quality is good. Also, their schedule is much more detailed (that will come in subsequent build).

I guess a subscription for the site is required before using this addon?

Yes mate, subscription required to access. worth it though, once the plug in is completed with all 30-odd channels it will be amazing. Big Grin
