For those of you judging streaming against a local broadcast TV station. Add 3.5 secs - its due to to digital processing in the building, digital transmission downriver, more processing in the transmitter. ANYTHING digital adds latency. A better judgement is made using the clock on your cell phone.

I ask, because watching an LSU game, I often follow Twitter live feeds as well and have noticed that Twitter can be faster than Dish Network and I don't like knowing what happens before I see the play (I know, don't follow Twitter --- and real problems).


Can you elaborate on this process a little. I ask because I hear people complain about this every now and then and I might be interested in trying my hand at creating a solution to this for the masses if possible using Twitter's API (waiting on API approval) as I am looking for a new project. I don't really use Twitter, but is what you are doing just monitoring a hashtag/specific users post in you feed or their live video? What's this look like for the user? Are you watching the game phone in hand and your feed auto updates new tweets? Are you watching someones video on Twitter commenting on the game? How would someone who uses Twitter while watching a live event like this to work? The way I'm picturing it is you set your tweet preferences (users and/or hashtags), your desired delay and a "live" (delayed) feed populates tweets.

re: Approximate YouTube TV delay vs. in-person sporting event?
Let me know if you'd like some help, my username at gmail.

You got me to searching for similar solutions, and I found the Sport Sync Radio for $70 that lets you add a delay of up to 60 seconds to your local radio broadcast of a game so that you can sync it to the TV feed. Are there any internet radio streams that allow pause/rewind?

Haven't found anything to delay a twitter feed yet. I can see a lot of people using something like that.

Yeah man, I looked around too and was surprised there is nothing out there for this other than someone talking about making something similar back in ~2012. I got my API keys so I'll probably start messing with it in Node.js after the weekend.

I've tried several streaming services over the years and there's always a delay with each of them. Usually less than 10 secs or so.

I also notice variation between delays if I'm watching a game on the ESPN app vs YouTubeTv app.

re: Approximate YouTube TV delay vs. in-person sporting event?
I have YouTube TV and am always the last of my friends to know what happens.

I'm on a large WhatsApp group with buddies and I have to not watch it during big plays.

Having said that YTTV is great
