Budweiser Goal Light Lag Test

I did a little experiment today after receiving my Budweiser goal light. The add says within 1 second but it's more like 10+ seconds.

Mods maybe you can embed for me don't know how thanks.

Just pause your tv for 10 seconds then press play your game will be behind 10 secs but who cares the light will be synced

Agreed a bit disappointed hopefully they are working out some kinks and it is going to get a bit faster! My wifi is full bars and I live in GTA don't know if that matters.

Assuming there's no lag, I think the budweiser goal light would be cool for like a couple weeks, then it'll just get annoying. But that's just me.

edit: wrong thread

But that is unfortunate about the goal light. Hopefully they can fix that up.

It's still pretty cool though

Well they probably have someone that watches the game and presses a button for them to light up, but they pay him in buds so he's a little slow at least he remembered

To be fair, the Official Leafs App on my phone takes ~5 minutes to send me goal updates, 10 seconds is pretty good considering everything that has to happen.

The pause thing is a good idea

I want a light, sucks how it has some lag but I kind of figured that would happen. Simple solution is to pause the tv for a bit to match it up better as has been mentioned. But then I would be afraid that the next time there is no lag and the goal gets spoiled for me

The pause thing is not a good idea at all, what if he pauses it for too long and the goal horn goes off before the Leafs even scored a goal

At least in my experiences, GCL is 30 seconds to 1 minute behind live TV as is.
