If you want to stay as up-to-date as possible, then you may be surprised to hear radio will offer you the quickest updates.
However, you’ll need to tune into analogue radio instead of digital.
Analogue TV and radio offers virtually no delay when watching live action, but the UK’s analogue TV signals were turned off in 2012.
While that means you no longer need to worry about fiddling with annoying tracking knobs, and you get crystal clear HD visuals, these types of broadcasts have a slight delay when it comes to live broadcasts.
That’s due to the huge amount of data that is sent to your TV for a digital broadcast, and the amount of time it takes to decode the signal.
However, this is nothing compared to the lag you can experience when streaming on your tablet, phone or laptop.
These type of broadcasts can have a lag of between 10 and 45 seconds.
