You've conflated my two points.  That would tell the *carriers* who's
watching
what, but they probably don't care.  I was talking about *the
providers*
knowing (think DRM and "3096 viewers online").

Cheers,

It would be done the same way it is done currently with cable TV.  Who tells CBS how many people are watching?  The 
cable provider knows (or has the capability of knowing with modern digital cable) exactly what channel each cable box 
is watching at any time.

How does a provider of broadcast television know who is watching?  They don't, unless the subscriber has a ratings 
service device at their prem.

But if "broadcast" events over the internet are treated the same as "broadcast" events over RF,  who cares?
