It will stutter, stall, fade, pixelate, or otherwise demonstrate internet-based routing issues common to all streaming sites. And that's before the ISP issues and "neutral" protocols.

Its not that streaming video protocols and players can't be made to overcome 99.9% of these failures - but I've yet to see any sites supporting same, or players, out-of-the-box, so robustly configured, or allowing the consumer to make such settings if they were even available.
