Basically, they are trying to be your complete supplier of broadband, tv and 
telephone using their infrastructure.

Normally you pay for a bunch of channels, you get a box (similar to a 
cable/DVB box) and then get access to them. The channels are not encrypted, 
but they will only work on the IP addresses the ISP has allocated for you on 
their local net.

With something like VLC etc, you can watch the multicast streams on the 
computer, so it is standard protocols.
