These services are not needed yet. But is good that are under study,
in case changes in laws or balance of power make it needed.
For now, I think people will continue using HTTP download/stream
movies and tv series.
Perhaps countries where the 3 strikes legislation is aprobed will make
one of these systems necesary. But I think speed is a important
factor, and no slow system will suceed.
