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.

Membership Pricing
« on: September 02, 2017, 12:14:52 AM »
Being as this site is focused on sports, the names to include "Pass" versus the terms of Trial, Subscription, etcetera.

PAC-12 Streams will always remain free; though as a member, you will have the option to watch without ads. The TV Addons Passes and other options are found under your account profile as Paid Subscriptions

BYUtv seems to have made some adjustments to their site, and I can't keep a working feed directly from them, so that's why it's been down for the past few months from this site. However, it may be available through BestBuy IPTV (BBIPTV) whom I will be using for re-streaming the TV Addons feeds, which is where the next cost increase comes from, being implemented by end of May 2018.

The previous source, though I worked around their issues, wasn't too reliable anyway. With using BBIPTV, their streams have a higher reliability and will work 24/7, whereas one of the caveats of the old source was getting to refresh the source more often than I wanted to, taking away from trying to improve this site.

So from this, there will be 2 payment options for the TV Addons Pass:

  • $7.50/mo - ALL feeds provided through this website
  • $10.00/mo - All feeds plus your own IPTV account of the sources provided here, basically your own M3U8/TS listing

Either option, your ID will be like that of your account here for continuity. By default, a randomly generated password unless you message otherwise of one you want to use. For attempted protection, there will be a separate login to watch the TV Addons Pass feeds. Reason being: located on a separate web server that this site.

If you are already under a subscription through May 2018, message me if you would like to have the IPTV access and I will bring you in to a "grandfathered" option and I will respond there with the account details.

As to the reason for the increased costs: The investment to bring the quality feeds.

With the SPAM bots seemingly under control, I can properly take the time again to make the streaming pages more user friendly and not the need to login each time you close your browser session.

If you should choose to supply a financial donation, I will adjust accordingly if you let me know by message if that's your desire for one of the options above.

Basically, I want to make it fair to most everyone, by not out pricing someone who may be on a more limited budget, while at the same time, anticipating the ability to keep this service alive with all the costs involved.


Old info

As we are continuing to fine tune this site and implement more channels from what I couldn't do, primarily staying with PAC-12 and BYUtv, "Membership" has been placed on a number of the feeds to help improve the quality of service. At discretion, one of the channels could be opened for a day.

Being as this site is focused on sports, the names to include "Pass" versus the terms of Trial, Subscription, etcetera.


The 2 Week Pass went from free to $3.00, though anyone who registered prior to 9/6/17 12:40am PT when I changed it, will still have access at no charge during that period of time.


Current pricing via the registration at Global Gizmo Watch Party: http://i4atv.info/members/register

  • 1 Day Pass - Free acces
  • 1 Week Pass - Free access
  • Auto Renewal option available for these Passes:
    • $        3.00 for 2 Weeks
    • $        5.00 for 1 Month
    • $      13.00 for 3 Months
    • $      25.00 for 6 Months
    • $      43.00 for 9 Months
    • $      55.00 1 year Open Pass (FREE)
    • $ 1,000.00 for 16 years - My discretion if you want to donate a different amount than the pre-paid options, or you have a service or support you can offer to help assist this site along. It also became a catch all for spam accounts.

Sadly, I let some trouble brew at PayPal, my payment backend in the past few weeks, and now my account of 17 years is in serious jeopardy. :(

So while that is being resolved, I have upgraded everyone that had recently paid Passes and those that were currently active with the 1 week trial pass, to 2 years. :D

I did this, because I decided to open up membership to a 1 Year "Open" Pass, i.e. F-R-E-E to give me time to get this resolved and get another merchant account set up and placed. I also removed the 1 day trial, and kept the others listed for reference.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation for the "enjoyment" of this service.

While I wait restoring my original account, I have gone ahead and setup a second PayPal account, as "Personal" vs "Business" so those that choose to support financially, can do so through the donate button, as it's been corrected to point to https://paypal.me/ggwpl.

Registration has been set to allow a 1 Year Open Pass by default, and then those of you who choose to, can do as your heart desires in helping to keep this service alive for your enjoyment of your favorite, and not-so favorite teams and players.

Thus far, only a handful have taken up the current offer, which allows you access to some enhanced broadcast qualities.

Again, thank you for your understanding and cooperation. ;D

I have updated the Main Post to reflect the next move for the membership pricing (TV Addons Passes more precisely).

 

* Random Feed


BTN for Womens Gymnastics

* 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
