You mean IP TV content products from folks such as SES Americom' IP-PRIME or
IPTV Americas or EchoStart IP TV or Intelsat?

I think this shows the need for an Internet-wide multicast implementation.
Although I can recall working on a product that delivered satellite
multicast streams (with each multicast group corresponding to individual TV
stations) to telco CO's. This enabled the telco to implement multicast at
the edge of their networks, where user broadband clients would issue
multicast joins only as far as the CO. If I recall this was implemented with
the old Cincinnati Bell telco. I admit there are a lot of CO's and cable
head-ends though for this solution to scale.
