The Portland Phoenix actually had a feature on broadcatching (RSS + BitTorrent = Tivo for your PC). The article is a pretty good introduction to the concept.
Cinema Minima, the blog for independent films that are actually independent, has declared that "The salient issue facing movie makers is distribution" (Trendwatch: new ways to distribute movies). To that end, they will be paying close attention to developments along the broadcatching front.
Steve Gillmor, one of the first to recognize the potential of RSS+BitTorrent back in Dec '03, has penned an open letter to Microsoft's CEO, Steve Ballmer (Memo to Steve Ballmer). The letter makes the case for increased Microsoft support for RSS, including the broadcatching combination.

Matt of Hit or Miss has stepped up to the RSSTV challenge and is someone else you can suggest shows for whose TiVo will automatically record them (Program my TiVo). Program Matt's TiVo here: Program Matt's TiVo Page.
Infoworld's Jon Udell praises the Webjay collaborative playlist system (Blogs + playlists = collaborative listening). Grumet also thinks webjay is very cool (I stumbled upon webjay.org). Broadcatching is going to make these playlists so much more functional, eventually.
Berkman Center Senior Fellow Jim Moore has a couple posts of interest. In the first, he notes that, "The big advances in standards come when we find simple scalable ways to tie together machines that matter into vast interactive networks." XML and RSS are example of this, and Moore claims that one of the next steps is to tie TiVos into these networks (RSS Video). His second post, though chronologically earlier, is an important note on the potential political importance of broadcatching (TV as the new game 2). TV is and will remain a critically important element in politics. However, broadcatching may be able to shift the traditional balance of power. I'll need to write more about this.
Open Source programmer Bill Lovett sees a lot of potential here and has added the concept to his "project ideas" category (TV Listings via RSS).
Charles Nadeau thinks broadcatching would be great for software distribution and he wants to combine it with CVS (CVS + RSS= !!!).
Information Addiction lists broadcatching as one of many new distribution protocol possibilities, such as BitTorrent+FTP, aka Peer Distributed Transfer Protocol (File Distribution).
From ancient broadcatching days, December 2003, Matt Jones sang the praises of broadcatching and recommends it to the BBC (BitTorrent + RSS = Decentralised Tivo?). A brief trackback is from Submit Response Reading, in which broadcatching encourages the poster to "chuck out" their "broken telly" (Torrent TiVo).
NI3 points to content that would be great to distribute via broadcatching (Amazing!). The windows media video is a "compiliation of crashes set to music." Ok.
Julie Leung has an interesting idea of IMing with friends and family while watching the same program at different locations (TV is torture). I can imagine it getting annoying really quickly, but there are interesting possibilities here for broadcatching.
Finally, Lisa Williams is inspired by RSSTV and broadcatching to imagine user-made commentaries for television, both real time and asynchronous (DIY MST3K). I've been a big fan of this idea for a long time, see LawMeme (The MST3K Syndrome - Coming Soon to a Home Near You?).
