I watch each match on iFollow with my mates over WhatsApp. I have a brand new ACER laptop with an Intel Core i7 processor and 8 gigs of RAM, so laptop performance and/or latency shouldn’t be an issue yet I am always 3 or 4 seconds behind them in the stream. I am on Sky Broadband with the newest router. 
 

Anyone know how I can reduce this lag?

I understood all of this up until the point you started typing.

 

But I make Stig of the Dump look like modern-man.

Please post simple language we can understand  

Can I join your what's app group?

You can't

You really need high internet speed  and a high ping rate.

 

Try shutting down any other items you ave connected to your wifi.

Think he’s saying his mates are also watching it too via ifollow and he’s 3 seconds behind them.. so must be an issue to do with his connection

A genuine idea...

 

Why don’t you and your mates stop it at the same point? Say, the instant the Ref blows the whistle or the instant the Owls team-sheet is taken off etc...?
 

You’d all be watching it with the same lag then, give or take a split second.

We’ve tried that. But it doesn’t restart instantly and consistently so it still ends up out of sync. Thank you anyway bud.

Think you need another ISP - 75 years is some lag

 

To be fair, I'd stick with the 75 year lag stream - next 25 years would be much more entertaining that what we've probably got in store. Just reboot when it gets to 1970.
