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?
How many channels can you get on your (terrestrial) broadcast
If you want more, your choices are satellite or cable. To get
need to be in a cable area. To get satellite, you need to

the side of your house, which you may not want to do, or may
not be allowed
With IPTV, you just need a phoneline (and be close enough to

40+ channels over
IPTV (over inter-provider multicast, to any UK ISP that wants it).
