Delay in streaming of live shows

Programs transmitted via Zattoo have about 20 seconds delay in comparison to the normal tv transmissions - this in case of watching Zattoo on PC/Mac. Exact delay times may differ on other apps.

This delay is caused by the conversion of the signal from the satellite or cable to the IPTV standard. The signal must be compressed for digital television first, then converted and buffered.

For this reason, there is always a delay when you compare digital television with the analogue signal.

We strive to keep the delay as short as possible.
