F1 on Channel 4

Ignoring the fact that we are not supposed to be watching it, did anybody else watch the qualifying on Saturday and the highlights of the race yesterday ?
If so, did the stream keep on looping (repeating) ?
Correct me if I'm wrong but surely this can't be due to the internet or my graphics card ?

If I agree with you, then
we would both be wrong

I watched both the qualifying and the race live on sky via tunnel bear VPN and had no lagging or problems whatsoever.
Maybe your download speed was a bit slow

Probably ok on Sky.  My speed was ok and it wasn't buffering.  It was repeating.  I suspect it's the CH4 servers.

When I used tunnelbear, I never had speed fluctuations. But it offers only 500mb per month for free, so I decided to change a VPN service. Now I run another VPN and regret choosing it. Connection speed is horrible, it appoints blacklisted IPs. Anyway, if you want to stream on a decent speed, choose a VPN provider carefully. This guide will be useful.

I'm using the paid version of Tunnelbear.  I think the problem is with the CH4 servers.

Watched live today (not catchup) and still looping very badly.  Some repeats were nearly a minute in length.

Hello. I watched the race live on channel 4 via sky. No problems tho occaisionally the signal faded and caused the screen to pixelate ( probably spelt wrong). I wonder if you are watching via the internet via Mobdro ? I have experienced your problems before.  Now I watch via sky when the sat signal is good or via paid Filmon

I was watching live on All4.  I don't subscribe to Sky.  The pixelation came from the broadcast source and they apologised for it.
