Re: VMedia IPTV is Teksavvy planning on participating?
Myself if i recall Zazeens pricing i much prefer vmedia but yes it would definitely be a Thorn in the Incumbents side if the Indie Tv Operators all Worked Friendly like on any indy isp p:) with a simple form! -- Every time Someone leaves Sympatico an Angel gets its wings.
In my case, I'd simply drop off a compact rackmount server at an ISP's IPTV facility to provide my channel's broadcast feed. The channel's schedule and content will actually be loaded onto the server from our own facilities -- asynchronously on a non-dedicated line for the most part -- with dedicated live feeds provided only during live events.
I've been working on my TV project for a while now, studying this method of delivery. The amount of bandwidth that would be eliminated through the use of remote servers installed at the ISPs will be considerable. In fact, the bigger cable providers already use very similar systems (much more elaborate though) to acquire and distribute most of Canada's cable channels. Very few of them ever need a live feed at all. -- Watch my future television channel's public test broadcast! »thecanadianpublic.com/live
