is possible to implement this idea?

The term P2PTV refers to peer-to-peer (P2P) software applications designed to redistribute video streams in real time on a P2P network; the distributed video streams are typically TV channels from all over the world but may also come from other sources. The draw to these applications is significant because they have the potential to make any TV channel globally available by any individual feeding the stream into the network where each peer joining to watch the video is a relay to other peer viewers, allowing a scalable distribution among a large audience with no incremental cost for the source.

Broadband is asymmetric
Download is often 10-20x upload..
So people have the ability to download video
but not upload it
This will be a challenge for the decentralised storage solutions too.

Until the DSL software to do symmetric or adaptive upload/download ratios ( i.e. you choose) is widespread (it exists) then this kind of peer sharing will be difficult at any significant bandwidth.

Then we could talk about the time sensitivity of streaming as you seem to talking about live realtime streaming rather than download and play previously aired programmes.
