    No, not really (although that's interesting too).

    I was talking about content being available on the Internet (you're talking about content being available on another box in your house on your own LAN). This is really the only way satellite will ever have true on-demand (rather than setting aside some amount of space to push stuff they think you might want to watch later).

    E.g. CNET TV But really it can (and should) cover the whole spectrum from PPV-like content to old episodes of current and past TV shows (see ABC, Fox for current TV, AOL In2TV for old stuff), all the way down to video blogs (YouTube and the like). Basically we're beginning to see a whole lot of (good and bad) video available on the Internet, and I for one would rather watch it on my couch than at my desk.

    OK, I thought the IPTV was just for DSL companys. Basically I thought that it was the phone companies version of cable or sat. With the added benifits of one server and Ondemand via the web. Ever since I saw the video of Vooms whole house DVR video with the thin clients I wanted it. But sadly that won't happen.

    VOD is Video on Demand. It is a place for DirecTV to push things to you unit. Stuff like PPV's, Movies, etc. Thing other people have payed $$$ for that they hope you'll watch.
