And bandwidth is the only thing holding back the service model
Imagine a next-gen 3D game 1280x1024 @ 100FPS <=10ms input latency. Can i stream it from server and who will pay for a dedicated game machine for every client?
This is a nonsence.
Where are already such a service for some highly under-powered cable TV STB, but the overall service quality is low (for interactive apps).
