Internet delivery may facilitate the Deep State in controlling what is
disseminated. Assume that all satellite and terrestrial broadcasting is
eventually eliminated in favor of internet delivery/net-casting. It is
conceivable that with a couple of key strokes programming could be
changed or stopped by the Deep State.
How's that for a conspiracy theory?

And this is really my largest concern about this whole mess. If it
were just program content, that would be one thing. Programming can be
pushed out days in advance. There are a number of programs that we
take via internet only, because that's the only way they are offered.
Rarely is there an issue because programming can be posted and
downloaded weeks or even months in advance, then used as needed. Live
feeds are another story altogether.
We left a news service a couple years ago that was trying to go cheap
and replace live C-band delivery with Internet only delivery for
"live" news. I'm sure that streaming could prove to be a better
alternative than posting a file every hour and requiring stations to
download it, but as others have said, it's not on the same page with
C-band for reliability.

I realize that live content delivery isn't quite as simple, but given
the fact that most teenagers can live stream pretty reliably from
their cell phones, we should be able to come up with a consistent
method with multiple layers of redundancy.
