@ThePope27 SkyQ is around 10 seconds delay, the low latency test on Ch 922 has improved  25 seconds delay somewhat.

Still won't be quicker than sat

 

Where do you think they get the feeds for Stream from ?

@ThePope27 I never said it was quicker, remember it's likely won't be satellite after 2028 so working on low latency streams is important SkyQ tick tock

@Floydianslip 

EOL on the Astra sats at 28.2 is 2028, SES will just move another sat to 28.2 in 2028, satellite is going nowhere soon.

@ThePope27 satellite will be around for years to come but Sky/Comcast are moving towards IP delivery because it's a lot cheaper and more flexible. Sky Q is being phased out.

Potentially as few as four years: the current Sky contract with SES ends in December 2028, and past then the expected remaining lifespan of the Astra 28.2E cluster is distinctly limited.

Re: My Sky Sports 25 seconds behind live game ?

Welcome to the rubbish world of streaming. Never watch a sport live again. Always knowing that what you watch is quite a bit behind what has actually happened. 
Why this is being championed over a dish I have no idea and one reason I cancelled my sky subacriptions. Q got got too expensive. Stream too unappealing.

@rabbit+head Sky and Openreach are testing low latency streams at the moment and they'll be officially available on Main Event from the start of the new season. The delay should be inline with a Multicast delivery as used by BT TV with the difference being it's not locked to their platform. 

It'll be rolling out to the other main Sky Sports channels over the following months.

@rabbit+head  Have you tried channels 921 (Sky Sprts ME HD Low Latency test)  & 922 Sky Sports ME UHD Low Latency Test)?

@ThePope27 well its not from the satellite downlink so I dont see the relevance of your post.

 

In practice the Sky sports feeds all are managed by their main control centre at Osterley Park in West London where the programme material is assembled and almost certainly fed simultaenously to the satellite uplink facility and to the streaming  platform. There is latency in both systems, Sky have reduced the latency of the streaming platform by 20 to 25 seconds which is a great improvement but I have seen nothing to say that is all they can achieve. Theoretically given the extra 70,000kms or so the satellite signal has to travel to and back from the satellite streaming could be faster.

 

Alternatively they could simply delay the satellite feed by a few seconds if they chose. 😈

@Chrisee 

And you know do you,


You can categorically say that they don't use the sat downlink for stream

 

Your post is irrelevant also

@ThePope27  With respect you seem to keep peddling the myth that stream is fed via satellite without any evidence also.  Do you have this?

 

And yes there is clear evidence channels on stream are fed directly from a source prior to satellite, otherwise how do you explain the fact that all BBC regions were in HD on Stream/Glass but not on Satellite?

Because the era of television broadcasting from satellite is drawing to a close: it's a decades old technology and a very expensive way to shift bits when compared to terrestrial optical cabling.

 

If investors in the satellite provider (SES) don't make a decision to commission, build and launch replacement orbiting platforms to replace the trio of satellites which Sky currently uses, all the existing dishes will be pointing at empty space.
