An MPEG-2 program stream (not a transport stream) would seem to qualify. If you're already creating transport streams, it's not all that difficult to create one or more program streams from that, without any re-encoding. I'm not sure how one would stream it, but I suspect it's not all that difficult using RTSP.
Is this for within your intranet, or externally, or both?

In certain environment this is a possibility, however, MPEG-2 does not scale well to low bit rate applications, and is less efficient than h.264 for high quality download and streaming over intranets.
