I’m surprised that satellite TV is still competitive with Internet based TV (IPTV)

You are missing an important fact. People who live in the boondocks have to use satellite broadband (like HughesNet) for their IPTV.

With satellite broadband comes the Fair Access Policy (FAP) where your speed gets downgraded to near dial-up speed after you hit their limit. This happens very fast when streaming television.

Satellite TV (like DirecTV) has no such limits.
