That helps isolate the issue IME.
As Bob has said, plenty of gremlins abound w/ digital feeds/streaming. In this sense it's easier to see if another laptop or PC suffers equally. A good starting point vs swapping out & re-configuring wifi routers, etc.
I am streaming a football match from Sky Sports (I'm logged into Sky Go so it's official and legal streaming). I've connected my laptop to my tv via an HDMI cable. The quality generally is good - clear and sharp - however it's jumpy and kind of jerky and I'm not sure why and if I can stop it.
I sometimes stream Amazon prime on my tv from my laptop and have occasionally noticed the same but as there isn't constant quick movement in a normal film it's fine, however for football it's really annoying and noticeable!
My internet speed is really good (128mbps on a good day) and on my laptop it doesn't jump. Equally if I watch football directly on the TV from Sky it is fine (unfortunately I can't do that for various reasons)
My laptop is a MacBook Pro (2015 model), and the tv is Samsung, it is a bit old (maybe 2011 or 2012), however it's usually good with normal HD
Is it the laptop or TV, or even the HDMI cable, and can anything be done?
Please note, I am not very tech savvy so any suggestions in simple terms are appreciated
