With Internet Streaming of sports, There is roughly around a 30 second delay

 

Which to most might not be a bother, but when you are running live stats updates and getting twitter alerts, it can be annoying.

 

Sky is roughly 8 seconds which is manageable.

 

So you think there the 30 second delay to get broadcasts down to PC/Devices will come down in time?

There's too many factors to consider. So doubtful unless the source is already raw and just relayed.

 

The source - is it already a network stream that broadcast is using being re-processed, is it processed from a TV stream (like spark sport rwc?) then sent on for a stream

 

Where it's sent - IE rwc, believe spark sport is received in NZ (TVNZ raw), tweaked, sent to the US, processed by streaming service, sent back, distributed by akamai. If there is a side-by-side tv play from that source there is obviously going to be a difference

 

Struck the same with bathurst, around 20-30 seconds after seeing the live timing change it was on the stream. And unfortunately no way to delay the live-live timing so had to turn it off for the conclusion to not spoiler alert. I see it as just the way it is, wide bandwidth satelite feed point to point, vs a digital medium that needs format shifting to get it down an internet pipe (with lots more hops between). The time to put a phone down and take it in is upon us.

 

We either all need to get the same source worldwide, or there's the chance someone will see it sooner.

Is it a 30s delay for all providers? 

 

Whats the delay for SkySportNow and SkyGo? 

 

Whats the delay for TVNZ sport (do they have sport streaming anymore?

 

Whats the delay for KayoSports?  

 

 

 

Spark have a 30 second delay but is it because they dogleg the feed from Japan to NZ to the US and back to NZ?  Farcical having the encoding in the US but worse in sending it to NZ and then the US rather than straight from Japan to the US - how much time would that save?

 

RedBee showed it can drive latency to 3.5seconds for live OTT.  Thats less than traditional broadcast.  https://advanced-television.com/2019/04/11/red-bee-achieves-3-5s-latency-for-live-ott/

Bathurst was the main reason why I dropped VodafoneTV and went back to Sky Digital
