I respectfully suggest that you need a better imagination.  What
about if your tuner is connected to a satellite dish, which has
to rotate to point to a different satellite?  If that is one of those
large dishes, that can take some time (moving large mass is
intentionally done slowly).  Some people (I would bet) still have
antenna rotors on their roof for OTA too.  When I had one of
those over a decade ago it was also slow (fringe signals about
120 degrees apart; it was a large antenna, and it too moved
slowly; less than 1 rpm if I remember correctly).
