Default What's the best streaming IPTV technology out there??

I'm looking for a streaming IPTV website that doesn't make you download any software and can deliver full-screen video in High Definition.

Most of the video players out there have to buffer forever or the quality is blurry/choppy, or they don't do full-screen or all of the above.

Anyone have any suggestions about a company that can do this?

Please don't post links to sites with lame video players that can't perform.
Remember:
- fullscreen
- HD
- No downloading

Can anyone help??

Hey, I found an IPTV site that can do the full screen and the High Def video without downloading any software and it's true streaming too, not progressive download!

They are called _blast IPTV.com

It's the only site that I have been able to find that can do this.

Apparently they only need 100kbps to stream this kind of quality too!
The other sites that make you download software say they need at least 10 to 30 times that much bandwidth.

These guys are friggin amazing! Check out their demo site!

TVU Networks is ok but again the picture & sound quality is poor.

Ya, TVU is really bad quality. and you have to download their player, which always sucks.

But hey, if you're desperate to see the next UFC PPV for free and you don't care if the picture is choppy and fuzzy and the sound is always out of sinc....then by all means

I have just had a look at the blast IPTV demo and whilst it is better than the normal streamed tv, it is supposed to be 720p but the quality is poorer than an sd copy DVD that I have.

the only channel on TVU Networks that has an ok (ish) picture is CBS, however its been cropped & has black lines around the picture.

If you're talking about the 300 movie demo on the Blastiptv.com demo page, I think that must have been one of the earlier movies they used cause I've seen a bunch on their Blastip.tv demo site that are totally HD.
