Default How do you watch Gamepass?

I`m in the market for a new TV, so I was wondering who has had experience watching GP on an internet TV and is it worth the extra cost, or do you hook your laptop/PC up to an HD TV, and if so is the picture sharp and clear and not suffer from any decrease in quality?

Well, I connect my laptop to my 720P TV via HDMI and it looks okay. I wouldn't call it great, as it's obvious that the material is <720P and the bitrate isn't very high.

Please bear in mind that the image quality will degrade if you watch it on a 1080i/p television, but in the end the experience will be better compared to watching it on your PC.

I use my iPad to AirPlay GamePass to My Apple TVs. I have one in the lounge, study and bedroom.

My Panasonic SmartViera GT50 50" Plasma doesn't work with GamePass and I think other TV web browsers will have the same problem with Flash video.

Interestingly, my TV has an MLB app built-in but the picture from the Apple TV app is still better. I hope the NFL do an Apple TV app this season.

I have a PC connected to a 43inch TV via hdmi. Picture quality is superb, can hardly tell the difference between gamepass & watching on Sky.

Please consider your Internet connection before making any expensive purchases as this will probably have the greatest impact on the picture quality. I've run it on 20mb and it was fine (although I now have 50mb, but there's no real difference TBH). I'd suggest anything from 10mb and above if your after a reliable HD quality picture.

I'd do some research before buying an Internet TV, I VERY MUCH doubt it could access gamepass. Most of the content on those devices are accessed using apps developed specifically for it.

I can't leave a Gamepass thread go without mentioning that you get 10% cash back for purchasing via Quidco - for the sake of an extra click you'd be mad not to...

The stream has a resolution of 960 x 540 (if I recall correctly) and a mediocre bitrate, there is plenty of improvements that can be made in this area.

My gamepass picture whether NFL Network or a live game has always been in full HD on 720p laptop and 1080p tv. The stream quality depends a lot on your connection speed, what programs you're running and computer processor.

No it's not.. it's always 960 x 540, pressing 'full screen' only stretches it so it covers the entire screen. And no, that has nothing to do with my internet (Dutch -> 120Mbit).

Always. Some devices may try to upscale it, but it will never be proper HD.
