One thing to remember about the video services that do support IPv6 is
that a lot of end users, even if they have IPv6 in the home, won't see
them over IPv6.  Many people watch Netflix and such from TV-connected
devices like DVD/Blu-Ray players, "smart" TVs, Xboxes, TiVos, etc.  Many
(most?) of these devices don't support IPv6, and many never will
(because they don't get firmware updates much after release).
