Hi, tdgeek, you have the logic reversed. If there are say 60 streams, which means 60 linear programs in motion, this is pushed out to all ends of the network, well the OLT's I presume, and the last leg pushes a currently selected stream to your STB/device. So all programs are pushed on the network, but only once, not 300,000x
Thanks. I get that Sky isn't sending 300,000 streams, but when 300,000 are watching The Bachelor :-) there must be 300,000 streams to all our homes? Not from Sky but where do those 300,000 streams send from?
There isn't. Think of how a standard Sky broadcast works. There's only one satellite sending out one stream, but 300,000 satellite dishes receiving the same stream. It's the same thing but it happens over fibre.
