Why should we pay extra for what we're already supposed to be getting.  If the ISps can't deliver what we're already paying for, they're broken.

It gets more confusing. See media licensing such as ESPN3, which is 
provider based. Unfortunately, they treat it the same as they do the 
cable channel, so if you don't run video services, it puts you in a 
really bad position. It's also doesn't scale. Sure, with just ESPN3, we 
might be able to do some billing stuffers, but what about the next 50 
video streaming sites that decide they want to do provider based 
licensing. How many stuffers can you put in with a bill?
