Watched Leeds game on Prime Via V6. Got a goal alert before it was on screen. Checked at halftime And Firestick was 85 seconds ahead of Prime video on V6 and the TV Prime app. Do they prioritise their own product?

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

With most streaming services it is hit and miss on the delay you get. You could get a few seconds or even up to a couple of minutes.

There was questions raised in the BT forums as to why their live stream can be minutes behind the set-top-box channel.

They explained it all and basically the streams have to be staggered - but you may find you reduce the delay by stopping and restarted. But you could also extend the delay by doing this.

Re: Streaming services news, offers and general chit chat

I often view my freesat off my Mut@nt HD1 over my network using M3U and VLC player and there is a delay on that over my own network. Imagine on the much larger scale the source needs transcoding so it is compatible with all devices then streaming on the fly, it will never be instant

Sony have launched their own premium streaming service called "Bravia core" only available on some Sony tv models for now. https://www.cordbusters.co.uk/sony-l...-service-core/

That’s a shame (my Bravia is about 5 years old).

Hopefully it'll come to more models in time too.
