Re: AFL Live

Hello @Archie23,

 

Thanks for your inquiry.

 

We do our best to ensure there are no delays, but there is a short delay as the vision

is converted into digital form for delivery onto a mobile phone.

This can take up to 60 seconds and can also depend on your location as well as network connectivity.

 

This is a technical limitation experienced by all Digital broadcasts, not just the AFL App.

Hello @Archie23,

 

The time will vary depending on factors like network provider, internet connection, device performance, weather etc.

Generally though the delay would be no longer than 60 seconds.
