Do you ever read
something and have something in your brain click and think "yeah... that makes a lot of sense!" I read this piece on P2P TV and it happened to me.
You're quickly up to a million hours of new video programming, world-wide, in a year....The biggest video-on-demand system being deployed by cable companies this year will have 1,500 hours of video stored on its centralized computers. So if you believe that people do want to watch whatever they want whenever they want, you need a massively distributed system.
Wonder what the MPAA will do when this goes live. Hopefully they learned from the RIAA's P2P mistakes and will adopt and adapt this model so customers can leverage P2P TV networks for a reasonable fee.
