Different delivery methods, different encoding of the stream.

Re: optus sport live

As @Paddylee said. Its also possible the Fetch is indeed buffering a small amount so brief interuptions in the signal don't immeadiately black out the sport for a few seconds (that's a good thing Smiley Happy). 

 

Funny story, back in the day ABC News radio used to start the news on the hour with 3 beeps to precisely note the hour. With the advent of digital radio they discovered different devices took a different amount of time to decode the digital signal back to analogue and play it. So the three beeps became useless and are now just a relic of history.

Ok thanks for the fast reply.

My son is watching it down stairs and is cheering and it takes 20 sec before I know what he is going on about 😀

At least its cheering.. Unless you go for different teams. 

Very little cheering when I watch Huddersfield ;(

How about that, technology suggesting you should watch it together 🙂
