MPEG-4 will take a long time to be SLOWLY adopted.DirecTV is the only
one right now that even plans to launch an MPEG-4 satellite soon,and
Ka-Band as well (current receivers are Ku-Band based).
In any event,both types of video streams will CO-exist for years to
come.

That may be true but existing receivers will not handle MPEG4.
I'd assume new receivers will be backwards compatible but
old receivers will not get the MPEG4 feed.
