Originally the Internet was a research-based arena but today the applications available are greatly diversified and extremely advanced. Media broadcasting on a real time basis is that which characterizes many providers business base in service, applications, soft and hardware needs. Today's engineers are driven toward making provisions of new and superior applications to make the Internet stronger and more serviceable. Along with the new dimension of today's Internet come new challenges. Videoconferencing and video broadcasting are mainstream entrant applications. These applications specifically those of videoconferencing and broadcasting place previously unheard of demands on the response-load of the network effecting data in terms of efficiency and effectiveness in data delivery. The new analog type delivery used today has opened the Internet up for new usefulness. This work explores the changes and the new technologies unleashed as well as observing how other advantages in IP networks still need to be realized, making determination of the roadblocks in achieving a competitive advantage in IP networks and evaluate the developments in broadcasting; determining other resources that need to be realized and identifying the chances that traditional broadcasting technology will revolutionize and catch up with IP broadcasting. Finally this work will assess what it would take to achieve the development of broadcasting technologies.
