Joel Lehtonen (3743763) writes "Finnish national digital TV broadcaster Digita co-operates with startup company Koodilehto to start transmission of Bitcoin blockchain and transactions in Terrestrial Digital TV (DVB-T) signal that covers almost the entire Finnish population of 5 million people. The pilot broadcasting starts in September the 1st and lasts two months. The broadcast can be received by a computer with any DVB-T adapter like this $20 dongle. Commercial production phase is planned to begin later this year."

I like this idea.

What about multicast?

IP multicast would be an interesting project too. I guess it would be more difficult to accomplish because you need to negotiate with different ISPs. The same kind of serialization technique can be used in multicasts, too. Feel free to implement it!
