Again, I don't see how AT&T can claim "DSL is fast enough" in one 
breath, then turn around and say they're ready to deliver IPTV.

I'm curious how program content is currently stored.  (Note that I'm 
totally ignoring live broadcast.)  If MPEG-2, I'd guess conversion to 
MPEG-4 might produce less-than-desirable image quality.
