So it seems we have seen the future with the PPV webcast from Boston, according to a note I received this evening:

Distance running fans in the United States can watch Sunday's Virgin  London Marathon on Universal Sports, either online or on television.
  Online, there will be a full-replay video on demand at  at 8:00 a.m. EDT.  This is a three hour replay, so viewers can see both  the men's and women's races in full.  There is a charge of $4.95 for  the program.
  On television, tune in at 11:00 a.m. for a two-hour edited show.  Go to  to find the location of their channel on your cable or satellite system  or over-the-air.
  So, the online replay provides an extra hour coverage, but costs $4.95.    The television broadcast is free, but is a shorter, two-hour program.

So I will be scanning and for a free streaming channel.
