1hrs increase in Latency and Packet loss?


[link to this post]
 
Seems odd 1 hr only 7-8pm

Never seen anything like this before - was watching Forces TV at the time & young son was playing Unturned on the PC - could Sky be streaming some channels, rather than them coming through the dish?

Sorry if daft question, new user to both Sky Fibre (ex plusnet) & Sky TV

If watching live then Sky TV is over the satellite dish, but if using a catch-up option (and not previously recorded on the HDD) then it would be streamed across the Internet.

It may have been an update for the game perhaps side loading at a guess
