Wasn’t Netflix originally p2p in some manner? I can’t remember the exact details (and I may be wrong), but I could have sworn their original architecture was distributed in one way or the other.

You might be thinking about Spotify, which had a torrent-like technology originally. Nowadays I think it's fairly limited.

Thanks that might be right!

Also Voddler I guess?

Netflix was never p2p, but BBC iPlayer was when it first launched.
