All I can say is that now I really regret going for annual subscription. Out of 4 European soccer leagues, 2 are gone...not good at all. I am not saying DAZN is to blame, all I am saying is that I...

Very true! That alone makes DAZN, especially on annual subscription, a pretty good value. Just wish there was a way of controlling beIN live stream in the same manner as for the rest of DAZN.

I can do it too (pause, rewind...) for anything on DAZN, on any platform I use (Fire Stick, Chromecast, or a Web Browser). Live or replay, it doesn't matter. The problem is with beIN Sports feed,...

You can watch Premier League on demand in their entirety for 7 days. Highlights (3 -5 min) are available even longer, I believe. You can pause, stop, rewind and fast forward these games. The same...

Oh, I see. So, DAZN may have the rights to broadcast beIN Sports live feed, but not the individual games, with all the highlights and other features. I hope they renegotiate it the way it used to be,...

That is the main reason I got a Fire Stick. I was tired of using my iPad all the time. So much easier to navigate, and of course I'm not talking about DAZN only.

Oh yeah...I completely forgot that my Hauppauge HD-PVR does not support 1080p resolution. 1080i or 720p is fine. Fire Stick settings won't let me go to 1080i, but when I switched it to 720p, it's all...

I rebooted by unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in after 10-15 sec. That is how I always do it, without ever having any issues. So, it definitely was not an accidental factory reset.
