Radio Play by Play AT the Bell Center

Is it possible to listen to the radio or tv play by play on your smart phone while watching games at the bell center without the huge time delay?

Is there much of a delay with AM radio? I would think not but I've never tried. If there is a delay then there's is just no way for fixing that since the radio you get on a smartphone is as good as any radio.

On a personal note, I would never listen to play by play while being at the game.

yeah it can be pretty bad, we're talking 30 seconds or more.

Well I'm afraid there's no way to do better, since TV is obviously worse than radio on a smartphone, since it's broadcasted over an internet network.

Try to get tickets in the pressbox and sit next to the radio guys.

Curious as to why you'd want to listen to play by play in the arena. If there were options to turn off the broadcast announcers on RDS, as much as I love Pierre Houde, I'd turn it off in a second to just get the rink sounds only.

Just like on this video? Damn, I love it! I wish there was an option like the one you're talking about.

One of my fondest childhood memories of my father was when he explained (didn't understand at the time) about the strike and how there'd be no announcers in the hockey games for a little while. We could never afford going to a live game, so watching it together with just the sounds of the puck, skates, posts etc was amazing.

There was a strike for the announcers? Didn't know about that, wow.

The least amount of delay is with an old fashioned portable AM radio.

I did it at a soccer game in the past. I don't remember the delay, but I think its much less than 30 seconds.

Next time anyone goes to an Impact or Alouettes game, take an old radio with you and find out!

Yep. In the 90s (or early 2000s?) when the games were on SRC.

That's what I used to do with my cassette walkman back in the day and it worked great.
