      Delay

      Hi there,

      I've just installed the sky go app for my htc desire, streaming quality is great but if I am watching something live like football and I am also watching it on tv there is a 1 minute delay with Sky Go, is this normal or do I have a problem.

      Thanks

      Irene

      I would guess it is because of the streaming etc - It's the same if you watch Sky News on their website, it's always slightly behind.

      It is because the pictures have to be encoded for transmission over the internet. I have found the BBC's live streaming to be much better and quicker as the pictures are about the same as they are shown via the channels on the sky box.
