Welcome to Global Gizmo Watch Party Live

Feel free to chime in and ask questions if something is not cooperating, or just in general to "hang out". Othwerwise, we have to presume there are no issues at hand, and the feeds are working for you all. ;)

If you're here as a guest and would like to watch more than just PAC-12 Network and BYUtv, feel free to register for a FREE account via the "Registration and Login Guide" with the 1 Year Open Pass.

* IPTV Streaming

As of 04.01.18 12a UTC, ACE TV closed their digital doors to streaming.

As good a service as it was, we are now looking into other options. A few have been located in research by Pedro, but now us admins will need to check them out as well for their reliability.

Again, NO IPTV service will be 100% reliable, but what we are looking for is stability and quality support when and if needed to help get feeds restored when it comes to investing as a reseller, which we are looking at $150 - $200 each time credits are needed to be purchased to allow you all as our customer(s) for the possible services.


I am not going to continue being a reseller, as it's not been financially conducive. Here are sources you can check out for yourself that could work for you.
  • Gears IPTV
  • BestBuy IPTV
    • Based on initial testing, I will be working this source in as my main source for the TV Addons feeds.
    • At such time, the pricing will increase once fully changed over.
    • Those currently on auto-pay will be grandfathered in at the current rate.
Thank you, and enjoy.

General Operating Costs
« on: August 17, 2017, 10:34:26 PM »
Please note: I am not in this to make money and I won't ever force anyone to donate or pay, to help others like yourself reading this that enjoy the access to your favorite team(s), but being able to keep my head above the water is a bonus to provide this service.

As I remember them, as most are paid monthly, and some paid quarterly, this list will get updated to reflect the general operating costs of providing this service. Yes, from the various other sites this service has migrated from, there are ads as well, but as long as my father is my accountant, those funds are going "untouched" and will just accumulate.

Thank you for skimming through, and I hope you continue to enjoy this service provided to you.

Brian GizmoDuckOR

Monthly:
  • S.U.B. -- http://subutil.com -- no power, no streaming to Live 1, 2 or 3 from Dish ~$165
  • Dish -- https://mydish.com -- enhanced login access, no added season ticket packages -- $120 (on hold as I pay up to restore service)
  • Digital Ocean -- https://digitalocean.com -- web hosting (transitioning home server to the cloud) -- $240 --> servers at a size that should now handle the load after the last balk on the evening of Saturday, September 23, 2017
  • InterServer -- https://interserver.net -- external web hosting license (WHM/CPanel) for the cloud server -- $15

Quarterly:
  • xSplit -- https://xsplit.com -- the app used to stream to Live 1, 2 or 3 from home, or away $24.95 (Premium) / $14.95 (Personal) Should I choose to restart vs using Open Broadcast Studio -- https://obsproject.com
    • As noticed on 8/17/17 at 2219 PT, there is a mega sale price of $199 for a lifetime license

I also understand you have the right to go to different sites that provide various streaming, but one main thing that you won't find at most of them, is the customer service to help you gain the best viewing experience possible. If you speak up and pose a concern or a question if something doesn't happen to be working for you, please be sure it's more than it doesn't work as I or another moderator may not be right on it, but will as soon as we can. So more details about a problem, the easier it will be to give a proper response and guidance. As the 2017-2018 school year fast approaches, more folks will be on, that also could assist if enough details are provided on your issue at hand. You choose not to speak up, then it's ALWAYS presumed to be in good working order.

* Customer Service

  • For Guests, Trial accounts and Members NOT logged in, there is NO LONGER a main shoutbox on the forum and homepage you can use. Following the NCAA Mens March Madness loss by the Arizona Wildcats, one Guest ruined it by posting the same message re: the Cats and what's transpired over the past few months. Not tolerated by myself as the owner of this site. 3/16/18 1400 PDT -Brian
  • For Members that are logged in, you will find a Members Only shoutbox on the homepage, and all available TV broadcast pages you can use.
When requesting support of a downed channel through the shoutbox, for enhanced support to guide you in the right direction, we ask of the following details:

  • TV Broadcast(s) in question
  • What you're attempting to watch on:
    • Mobile Device: Smartphone / Tablet (iOS, Android, Windows, or Linux)
    • Laptop or Desktop: Windows, Apple (Mac), Linux
    • Internet Connection: 4G, WiFi, or hardwired to a router on a broadband connection
    • Preferred Internet Browser: Microsoft Edge (Internet Explorer), Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Dolphin, etc.
We also ask of your patience as it may be a few minutes, or longer, to answer as we are not available 24/7/365-1/4, especially during the Holidays. We will do our best, but it is a 2-way street in supplying the support to help you get the best viewing experience possible.

Thank you very much,

The Admins
