Broadcast television in an IP world

Besides Netflix, does anyone else offer CDN boxes for their services?

I'm also guessing that most content won't benefit from multicast to homes
too much?

I can see where multicast benefits sports and news (and probably catching
commercials for people). But in a world where I'm more than happy to pay
Amazon $25-40 a show/season to avoid commercials, I'm guessing
live/broadcast TV will get even less popular (I get news via YouTube - so
that's not even live for me anymore).
