Re: death of the net predicted by deloitte -- film at 11

TIVO type setup with a massive archive of every show so you can not only watch this weeks episode but you can tivo download any show from the last 6 years worth of your favorite series is one heck of a draw over cable or satellite and might be enough to motivate the public to move to a different service. A better tivo than tivo.
As for making money, just stick a commercial on the front of every download.
The alternative is free viewing with more product placement, inline ads at the top/bottom of the screen, or a little header with "this program is brought to you commercial-free by <sponsor>", like I've seen on soccer (football to non-US folks) games. Commercials in their present form are dying fast with the advent of DVRs, and on-demand shows will destroy them -- though that won't stop some dinosaurs from trying it.
