It is called a digital TV receiver and it receives MPEG-2 streams broadcast freely over the airwaves. Some people, myself included, have a receiver that with a hard disk that allows pausing live TV and scheduling recording from the electronic program guide which is part of the broadcast stream. Given that the broadcast model for streaming content is so successful, why would you want to use the Internet for it? What is the benefit? --Michael Dillon
