The BBC says it has worked out how to eliminate "streaming lag", which causes live TV to be delayed by several seconds when watched online.

The final latency improvement we have made comes from optimising and streamlining the various processes that our media goes through before it emerges as segments available on the Internet. By doing this, we can show what is possible in terms of low latency distribution, though it’s fair to say that some additional delay is likely to return here if we were to take our prototype and scale it up for full production use.
And as I also said in that thread, when you previously said "they’re working on it"...

OB, really? I didn’t know that...

(Except for the fact, as mentioned before, that one of my best friends is a Lead Technical Architect at the BBC, working specifically on the Telecomms area, who speaks at International conferences on the impact of 5G on broadcasting, and who is a member of a National 5G Working Group advising the UK Government, and my comments are informed by discussions with him - which highly experienced technical resource at the BBC are your comments informed by?).
btw, the original article was from September 2018 - doesn’t appear to have been much visible progress since then.

Ok, sorry, I misremembered. No need to rub it in.

Not really - it’s just that I think it’s relevant to point out you keep reposting the same misinformation in support of your proposition, even when it’s been previously debunked.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Premier League clubs set to agree new £5billion “rollover” TV deal.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/footb...ee-24094612?1=


Quote:
Clubs have agreed in principle to extend the existing terms of the current contract with Sky, BT Sport and Amazon to show live games.

But it is also likely to include an extra £100m for EFL clubs on top of the existing £140m in solidarity payments for teams in the Championship, League One and Two.

Premier League bosses and clubs have been left in limbo on the next TV contract because the pandemic has meant negotiations have been put on hold when normally the next deal would have been announced months ago.

Apologies I should have included an emoji with my previous post. I totally agree with you.

Others on the forum think there’s some benevolent capitalists out there ready to spend billions on the rights to “blow Sky/BT out the water” and sell it to everyone for a tenner a month.

The Financial Times are reporting clubs have voted and agreed to the proposed new deal which includes the EFL receiving more funds, a requirement set out by the government. Sorry this might be a paid link:

New TV deal could be announced as early as tomorrow!

Very true, not only that, streaming is abysmal, time-wise, as it can be up to a minute behind real-time.
