There are quite a few IPTV-on-demand applications out there (Joost for example) but no better company to get involved in this than Google. I’m sure they could bargain for lots of otherwise unobtainable content. Joost is a good example – there’s aren’t too many decent stations on it.

Regarding the quality – well yeah. It’s not great but syndicated video content could be properly compressed and formatted.

Just a thought!

Probably pure greed on the part of the copyright owners. That seems to be the main issue facing them I reckon.

Willingness to pay for the content in its current form and quality is also probably an issue.
