Internet TV for cue sports?

People interested in putting pool, carom, etc on television would do well to
take a look at what is happening on NarrowStep's "TV on IP" system:
http://www.narrowstep.com/. There's some interesting stuff here, and it's
apparently cheap enough that even very limited interest channels are viable;
for example, there are two sail boat racing channels and a field hockey
channel. AccuStats already has a lot of material that could be used for a
cue sports channel, and things like the IPT qualifying tournaments, the
upcoming straight pool championship, three cushion tournaments, etc, would
seem to be naturals for this sort of service to a specialized market.

WOW, That would be great if they had some kind of Billiard channel. I
really like the Accu-Stat website.
