All I see are a handful of posts, which is a tiny fraction of the millions of people with V6 boxes.
The problem that VM have acknowledged isn't just an issue for V6 boxes, it happens to BT boxes as well, and only effects certain sports replays I understand. So sounds more like an Amazon issue than a VM or BT issue.
it looks like Virgin have not allocated enough capacity at CDN to handle the demand for Amazon video . ( and same issue at BT )
that will get worse as more folks try to stream amazon to their V6 boxes
typical cheapskate penny pinching from virgin
no sense debating stats as we cant see the whole picture.
there are a LOT of complaints here but arguably its only the complainers who bother to post
what would help with pinpointing the cause is if those who see a problem on V6 try to replicate it in PC browsers, or other android tv devices, linked to same Virgin broadband, and testing with same content
i second that but beware.,the new fire 4k stick is very fussy and must be connected directly to an HDMi port, the 3rd gen 4k square dongle ones will work via a HDMi extender, but not the new sticks. Took me over an hour to diagnose why my new stick would not work when swapped into the same set up as the previous gen one. and amazon were clueless - I got to realize it was a problem with the extender via stubborn trial and error.. yet another lets fight piracy by making life hell for honest paying customers stupidity HDCP issue
also because the latest fire TV are wifi only you need good wifi for 4k streaming
one advantage of the v6, once they get the bugs fixed, is that you can have it wired to your hub and use as much of the full wired package speed as you need
Nvidia Shield TV is a great, but expensive alternative, supports 4k netflix, prime.... and it has ethernet and dual band wifi
