There's hope for FireTV I'd think, given that that the French version is already available there (ICI TOU.TV). Given how much more stable Roku seems to be than Amazon Fire, I'd hope that appears too.

I tried signing up for the GEM streaming service, but can't get it to play. Little wheel keeps turning and eventually get a message "not available in your area". I sent CBC an email will see what they say. Not much luck here with most streaming services here in southern MB, guess we're still in the dark ages here. I do get netflix to work but the picture quality is badly pixelated and just... bad.

I've noticed some streaming service won't play at all with low bandwidth. Personally, I get about 5 Mb/s using ADSL, and Netflix normally looks okay in HD, and all the service play - and that's a really low bandwidth. Though the picture certainly starts to degrade if others in the house are also streaming stuff.

What's your speed? I suspect it's too low, if you are seeing pixelating on Netflix.

Glad to hear that the Amazon Fire TV stick is working as announced. The CBC Gem app is also supported on Fire TV enabled Toshiba televisions, however Android TV says coming soon, so it must have been delayed.

Wish they'd fix audio streaming to Airplay-enabled speakers.

Downloaded the Gem on Firestick. Works well. Quality is excellent. A lot of short commercials that pay the costs of the service unless you upgrade to paid premium service.
