When looking at a "live" match on tv/internet stream, what is the approximate time delay between events actually happening and seeing them onscreen? Obviously it depends on the source (satellite transmissions adding several seconds, internet stream buffering the same, etc) but some people here (*cough*) appear to have made an art form out of competing for who gets to make the match result thread on GM, so they must have some idea.
