Delays on live coverage

What, all 100 of them?
No, seriously -- what is the penetration of HD Radio at the moment?
I would think that until HD radio has significant market penetration
-- like even 5% of all radios in a market -- the 95% who still pay
the bills by listening on analog should get consideration over the
minuscule HD minority.
Pardon me while I remain underwhelmed. Why does HD radio need 8
seconds of delay when HD TV (how I'm watching the Patriots game as I
write this) has either no appreciable delay or a much smaller delay?
