    Note: the new providers Hulu USA and HBOmax will, during the beta phase, be available to all existing licenses and trials.
    With the final release, an AnyStream Pro license will be required for these and future provider additions.


    When are the redfox team going to tell us how much more a pro version will cost. I really would like to know, because i want to continue using HBOMAX.

    Cheers guys :)

    Please read this thread. Somewhere in it they explained about the upgrade and new customer purchase costs.
    It was something about 60 and 50€ I think.

    Edit: This is the link to the right comment.

    "Pro will cost 50 EUR on top (no matter if 1y or lifetime), upgrade will be 60 EUR (for sure with a nice discount in introductory phase)."

    basically for me some extre fees are fine but only for two features:
    a) netflix should be possible in HD also for new films again <-- kind of quality thing
    b) parallel download of multiple audio (e.g. German and English) <-- this saves time when there are no additional steps needed after download

    but this is only my personal priority...other ppl will have other priorities.
    just my two cents.

    For the lower quality Netflix movies there is nothing Anystream can do about it. It's already grabbing the highest quality available (minus 4K but that's because it's stuck behind LQ 1).

    a. How many Netflix movies are actually in 540p? I got all of the Fear Street movies, for instance, in 1080p. Besides, unless noted otherwise, any changes to the first 3 providers won't be pushed into Pro. Only new providers. I suppose this could change, but we've been told so far, that the original program will continue getting updates and features. The only change is Pro has extra providers.

    b. This is simply not going to happen. While I'm sure that these streaming services are aware of people like us, they will most certainly be aware of us, and more importantly, you as an individual, if you start accessing two audio streams at once, which is simply impossible when streaming normally.

    Since we have 4K in HBO Max, it's fair to assume they've cracked L1, it's simply a matter of getting all other providers routed through a method that allows 4K streaming, which will take time.

    HBO Max with AS delivers 4k?
     
  7. wright96d

    wright96d Well-Known Member

    Yes. 4K HDR10 and Dolby Vision. Right now it's a crapshoot which you'll get. The devs will have to work out a way for us to choose between the two.

    i think for HBO MAX 4K, they are using L3 not L1
     
  9. wright96d

    wright96d Well-Known Member

    That's highly doubtful, unless you know something I don't. As far as I know, 4K is only accessible using L1, no matter the service.

    we can access HBO MAX 4k streams from our browsers ( Chrome, Firefox etc). this is why i was telling its L3.

    go to HBOMax.com and go to Tom and Jerry (2021) film and you will see it says 4K, HDR etc under the title!!

    But do you have any proof that it actually plays at that resolution within your browser

    Without any proof, I'm going to assume the people who actually provide the service are correct in their assessment of what devices support 4K. The HMAX back-end in AS is clearly being handled by the android app. It's not rocket science. (Okay, I mean, I know it's not easy, but the AS devs wouldn't be the first people to have done it.)
    I'm not sure what that's supposed to prove, as I've already illustrated I'm well aware AS is capable of downloading 4K HDR. The question is whether or not it's using the browser for it's back-end. Which, with the long drawn out argument I've created, I'm not really sure I care to know the answer anymore.

    well ur wrong for a start, becuase HBOMax uses L3 NOT L1, and not the first devs to do it clearly do your research, if u have hbomax account login and check for yourself, if 4K was L1 on hbomax then 4k would be added for disneyplus, amazon, netflix and hulu but it hasnt so its clearly L3!!

    Okay, HBO Max uses L3, sure. But what exactly would you like me to check? That some logos appear next to movie titles? You really think that means they play like that in a web browser? Am I being punk'd?

    Edit: I may be wrong.
