I registered on this site several months ago but I haven't heard anything. A challenge to this approach is, ironically, the electricity cost. There was an article in the WSJ several weeks back. The way it works every subscriber essentially gets their own antenna/tv card on the host server. While each one of these chips might only take a 1/2 a watt... multiply that by hundreds of thousands of subscribers and the electric bill alone for this service could become quite crippling. Interesting idea though and I too look for a time when there won't be the cable monopoly.
