I would never say its impossible to do anything like this. We sent a man to the moon with an aircraft that had less processing power than a cheap wrist watch has today. It can be done. The probem is at what point is this kind of thing cost effective for everyone. Packages of some sort can continue to keep everything cost effective. Per show will never be cost effective. Imagine if you had to pay $2 for every 30 minutes of tv you watch that isn't sports, and about $10 for every sports program. D you really think that would ever come out more affordable than today's system? Only if you don't watch much tv.
