You cannot watch much broadcast content by downloading on the same day and
date as the original broadcast.

Why a simulcast. Yes for sports, but hardly anything else. Virtually 
all prime time programming can be viewed on demand or downloaded. 
Prime time for mobile applications is between 7AM and 6PM.

The time and channel business model of broadcasting is already dying. 
Extending this to the new mobile service is not going to change that, 
but it could cause the new service to be still born. If this service 
is to be successful it is going to take some INNOVATION...
