BBC news Vs other news gatherers...

  Quickbeam 19:19 13 Mar 2019

I've noticed over the last few weeks that the news notifications from the BBC app tend to be about 10/15 minutes behind the Sky ones.

Is this simply because the BBC waits a little longer for final confirmation with Sky being more eager to be first for commercial reasons? Or is the BBC slipping...?

There is a delay because so called live reports are not live.

When gulf war broke out I saw raggi omar on bbc internet news that was definitely live BUT a few hours later the same report was on the bbc 6 0 clock news , despite the banner saying "live broadcast" , it was not because some of the bits I saw online were missing.

Not TV news, phone app news.

Gulf War 1 or 2?

I find the BBC phone app very good - it's always pretty current with its breaking news notifications.

They're getting beaten every time lately by Sky's news notifications.

The first vote tonight arrived within seconds on the Sky app of it being announced on the radio!

"They're getting beaten every time lately by Sky's news notifications."

Difficult to see how that can be the case, when I watched the result being announced live on the BBC app.

I mean when the apps notification pop up, pops up.

...but hey ho, it's not the end of the world, just an observation.
