   I need fast as possible pictures on live sport for betting purposes. Does anyone know which system provides them fastest?  Im noticing that since ky went digital most live sports broadcasts are in fact about four or five seconds behind real live , can anyone tell me if clear quicker or if there is a way to speed things up

How can you speed up live yes sure there is a delay of a few seconds but think of what that image has to go thru to get to the screen you are watching it on.

If you want it any faster go watch the sports event live at the place its been held

(checks if its a full moon tonight)

i say sky is the fastest. telstraclear gets sky and relay it, when they relay it. it adds more delay. so sky tv is the way to go on the one.

Thanks for that

As for speeding it up , i know of several professional gamblers in the UK who have gained access to "raw feeds" whatever they are and have gained a significant time advantage

You would need to speak to the broadcaster about accessing the raw feeds. They will no doubt want thousands of dollars a month for you to gain access.

I think the live broadcast of sport on Sky could be delayed about a minute or 2

I have the Hurricanes on facebook and was watching a game a few weeks back, ref had just ruled a penalty and there was going to be a kick at goal, at the same time I saw an update on facebook with an updated score even before we saw the kicker line up the Ball on the tv broadcast.
TelstraClear just relays the sky signal down the cable so wouldn't be any gain there.

even if you would get raw feeds if you're thinking a sport happening overseas you will be disadvantaged. worst case is the satellite feed in nz has gone few times back and forth between the earth and orbit.

your best choice in such case could be dedicated IP link from europe. costly, but no more than half a second delayed from the real thing. cant get much faster unless you use a wormhole.

the radio?

uplinks are a little faster, but not much. Sky mostly use fibre and microwave as far as I know, and any sat stuff is encrypted.
