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

I thought the BBC, maybe, had developed a way of there being no lag in the live streaming of sport?

Yes, they give you a ticket for the match, only way for sport to be truly 'live'. Ultra ultra HD too when we're allowed back.

Massive stadium for that level too, the oldest international football ground in the world. Every chance of social distancing at the away end these days!

Certainly a bargain compared with the amount Sky customers are charged.

A problem even worse in flats.
But if it's only on streamers then everyone is the same distance behind - don't see your problem

That was an absolutely notional deduction offered to people who claimed it, based on perceived value.
Sorry to agree with richard but as I recall my bill went down by about 9 pounds when l called and told them that I didn't want free bt . That was a few years ago

Yes. I'm not disputing that (I did the same).

Richard is extrapolating this to imply Virgin pay BT £9.25 per Maxit TV subscriber. This isn't the case.

If streaming operated at a fixed "lag" yes.

If you stream the same event across different devices and different internet providers you get different outcomes on the length of delay depending on how long it takes to build a buffer before proceeding to play.

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

Not on 100 here - but is free on Sky. Also seen a comment that it was not made free on BTtv.

Already release said free to all platforms - https://www.bt.com/sport/football/fe...ch-on-bt-sport

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

Just watched the match on BT,a good match. They said before the match it was free to watch accross all platforms so one would assume it included BT TV platform too.
