Definition

An instance when a Live Television Event is broadcast on the same day, but not at the exact same time as its occurrence.

Deferred.

Ancient Indian Television coinage to imply that the telecast is almost as good as a "Live" telecast. In the age of single-channel television, a "Deferred Live" telecast was less valuable than a "Live" telecast, but significantly more valued than a "Recorded" telecast.

Usage
