The authors consider streaming over a blockage channel with long feedback delay, as arises in, e.g., real-time satellite communication from a Comm-On-The-Move (COTM) terminal. For this problem, they introduce a definition of delay that captures the real-time nature of the problem, which they show grows at least as fast as O(log(k)) for memory-less channels, where k corresponds to the number of packets in the transmission. Moreover, a tradeoff exists between this delay and a natural notion of throughput they introduce to capture the bandwidth requirements of the communication.
