Sorry mate, no easy answer
Just looking for a rough guide assuming all users were streaming data all at once. I realise in real life they will connect at different times to different sites, etc.
They might be multicast, I don't know the broadcaster's setup.
The proxy can handle streaming media as long as it is not caching. Caching makes it rebuffer too often.
Some of content might be revisited but many people go to different sites so not all watching the same thing.
These sites have live streaming for sports but stored video for old programs which can be requested on demand at any time.
