    This is an Echostar news release:
    There's an interesting story headlined The Fall of Move Networks which outlines the nature of the technology they developed. It's possible that some of this technology might find its way onto Dish boxes.

    Interesting is that a lot of Directv top managers now are ruling Move.

    And... Not that promising ending of that article:
    Perhaps it was low hanging fruit for E* ?

    They didn't buy Move for growth, they bought Move for the technology. This will be baked in to some future streaming product. In the meantime they will milk the revenue that they can for as long as they can.

    the VIP receivers can already be used with IPTV service; I suppose the use of Move's technology would allow them to sell their IPTV service to providers whose networks have a lower bandwidth capacity than what is now required? Or just let them free up bandwidth on the existing network. Am I understanding the technology correctly? It looks like their encoding allows more flexibility for traffic hiccups.

    Not in that full strength - limited IPTV processing happening for FVOD (night VOD downloads).

    no, they work for IPTV.

    the 'IP' in the 'VIP' series receivers is there for a reason.

    Actually it is "ViP" not "VIP" and I don't see what and how DVR/receiver participating. Perhaps after IP to QAM or 8PSK conversion ?

    they use the VIP series receivers for the IPTV service. there is no conversion to QAM, etc.. . , outside the receiver. It uses the ethernet connection of the receiver.
