( StackBlitz | jsBin | jsFiddle )

// RxJS v6+
import { interval, timer } from 'rxjs';
import { delayWhen } from 'rxjs/operators';
//emit value every second
const message = interval(1000);
//emit value after five seconds
const delayForFiveSeconds = () => timer(5000);
//after 5 seconds, start emitting delayed interval values
const delayWhenExample = message.pipe(delayWhen(delayForFiveSeconds));
//log values, delayed for 5 seconds
//ex. output: 5s....1...2...3
const subscribe = delayWhenExample.subscribe(val => console.log(val));
