Hi experts!

Well i am having a local area network contaning 150 users max. Users are now using this network only for internet access. The idea that i need help with is being able to stream tv over this network a multi channel stream (mostly 99 channels ) and we want each user
to be able to change and choose the channel he wants to watch. I already succeeded streaming two channels having two satellite reciever cards in my server . This means that for 99 channels  i would need 99 tuners or receivers..... Simply stupidity.
I feel that there should be a hardware device out there that can solve my problem the problem is that i could not find it yet!!! can you please help or at least give an advice about those devices ??? Or any other solution would also work ???

BS.
I am using windows media encoder and windows media service on a win 2003 server.

Please Help!!!
