Q: How do I view a LiveArena event?

Q: Do I need to login to be able to watch an event in LiveArena?
A: No, as a viewer in LiveArena, you don´t need to be logged in.
Q: What kind of Internet connection do I need to view a live event in LiveArena?
A: We recommend viewing LiveArena from a wired connection with a downstream bandwidth of at least 1000Kbps (1Mbps). However you may require higher speeds if the publisher is encoding at a higher bitrate. To test your speed, go to www.speedtest.net. Bandwidth fluctuates constantly (especially if you are using wireless or mobile internet), so running multiple tests is recommended. As a general rule your downstream bandwidth must be greater than the bitrate of the event you’re trying to view. You can find bitrate information in the Silverlight player window (down left hand corner).
