  • Allowing broadcasters to watch the game with the same delay as viewers would be great

    In the current state of things, broadcasters view the game live and DotaTV and web streams broadcast that with a delay (usually 2 minutes), to prevent cheating and things like that. However, this delay makes it harder for broadcasters to interact with viewers, meaning it takes longer for them to fix things if they have a wrong setting and its harder to interact with the viewers (polls, Q&A, etc). Therefore, I think a really nice feature would be to let broadcasters view the game with a delay and then broadcast that without a delay. Of course, this would need to be an optional because if the broadcaster is doing double duty as an admin then he must be able to be in the game without delay.
