Yes - but you are assuming that traditional media content is still king.
So far all methods of delivery of traditional content at unacceptably
high transit pricing has failed long term as a business model. 

Indications are strong that tommorrow we will be more intertested in
local community content.
Unbiased News and happenings to our friends and relatives.

I would suggest that tommorrows content will be P2P so in fact the real
media kings will be the ISP's that facilitate MLPA peering.

Just my 2c in reply.
