The internet is great...WHEN IT WORKS. 2 weeks ago we had storms, and MY ISP was down for over 12 hours. That means no streams, no FTP, no remote access, no remote voice tracking.......But all of our C-band programming (And we use a lot, especially over the weekend when the storms hit) continued to play. I did have  an XDS lockup and we lost some Time shifted content, but the Live programing continued to play.

When Radio is most relevant is when the Internet, cell phones, etc...IS not working.

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.
