Yes, but on Demand has a far lower utilization than this would, where essentially everything is on demand.

Absolutely not. Such a system would be technically simpler, but is illegal.

Cablevision won the court case in 2008 because they could show that all of the logical steps using the DVR service were the same as using a home VCR. That way they were covered under the Jan 17 1984 Supreme Court ruling that saved The VCR From Certain Death.

Aereo would have never proceeded with their business plan without the CableVision ruling. They reasoned that if DVR services were legal than they could add a personal remote antenna under the same legal principal.
