What are you using as your reference @alfiep212 ? i.e. how do you know that it's 40 seconds behind live?
Also, are you saying you'd rather not watch the match at all, than watch it slightly delayed?
One other comment I will make is that we're currently testing a new stream for the channels that will decrease the delay by almost 40% - from an average 40 seconds, to around 25. We estimate this to start being available across most platforms in the next 4-6 weeks - you've not mentioned which platform you're watching on.
@DarrenDev Jumping in on this...I am intrigued.
I currently watch BT 4K HDR via Chromecast Ultimate - the PQ is amazing, but the delay is killing me as I enjoy watching along with others who have BT on Sky. I notice the delay is approx 30 secs vs Sky on satellite. I know for some the 30s is minor, but for me, it can be quite a big deal!
Now I am technical enough to know that no IP delivery method is going to match Sky satellite, but is there any other option to keep the 4K HDR and reduce latency/delay? I don't want to have to switch to Sky and lose 4K HDR. I notice that Chromecast Ultra is actually 3-4 seconds behind the iOS app, going from iOSapp >Chromecast Ultra seems to add an additional delay which doesn't make sense to me.
P.s If there is any way to help beta test these new lower delay streams - I would bite your arm off. 🙂
These days you can't even set your clock by the radio. My radio-controlled clocks are usually at at least a minute ahead of Big Ben via DAB compared to FM. However, as time is relative...
@DarrenDev Interesting to note regarding the 10 sec chunks on Chromecast - it's not much, but it will help.
Thanks for the quick reply - much appreciated. Feature request - please get a native LG tvOS app out so I can ditch my CC ultra. 🙂
FlashScore, or any other sport results app.
Yes, I'd rather not watch it if it's delayed by 40+ seconds, for me that's more than slightly.#
My main issue is, I only signed up to BT online to watch the knockout phase of CL + EL, nothing else. So I feel like £20 is not a good value to watch just these matches with this kind of delay
