IP multicast was the only way for us to see what happened, live.
Unicast failed miserably.

I'll say that today with some providers offering streaming to customers iPad and other types of devices, the problem 
isn't the capacity to the home, nor is it really a concern for them.  It clearly doesn't matter if it's switched video, 
IPTV, or some RF.

All the problems that have made the news are about rights holders saying "this violates our contract" of some sort.

I'm sure it will be solved, and the internet will just become another transport medium, like RF over Coax or RF-OTA or 
IPTV/Uverse/FiOS or maybe soon just some standard RJ45/IEEE handoff with mac registration just like you have to 
register a digital STB with the head-end.

I suspect in the next 15 years the concept of broadcast TV handoff to the consumer will change again.  Hope everyone is 
ready for your television firmware and malware.
