I don't think the "technical challenges...are too high."  There have been
P2P streaming TV systems running in China at least since 2004 (www.pplive.com
& www.pps.tv) and Joost has been running (since late 2006) a hybrid network
with long tail content served from central systems and popular content served
from peers.  There's a good presentation of the Joost network architecture
