Video quality is one of the strengths with this service and shares the Australasian top-spot with SBS, offering near standard quality streams of 1500kbps.
Throughout the show, the host provides the men and women with additional insights by providing personality profiles showing which contestants are their best matches and also allowing them to view items the others have brought to the house, such as items of clothing or luggage.
Other episodes include sketch artists drawing contestants' impressions of each other.
A separate infrared camera films the person on the dark side's reaction; the two images are combined in post-production.
This is done, in part, by using video editing software to fade the infrared image of the person being revealed to black before they are illuminated, then seamlessly showing the color image of the person being revealed as it is faded in and out.
Don’t get too excited here, unlike a great deal of catch-up and on-demand services from other countries outside of Australia and New Zealand, you won’t find anything remotely with this service.
