Using multiple channels to broadcast a popular video can reduce the viewer's waiting time to approach video-on-demand service. For a given bandwidth allocation, pyramid broadcasting schemes can provide users with shorter waiting time as compared with conventional broadcasting schemes. However, for a 120-minute movie, the waiting time is only reduced to 20 minutes as we allocate 4 video channels for the movie. The harmonic broadcasting scheme can reduce the waiting time to 4 minutes but it can not support the live telecast. This paper presents a new broadcasting scheme, which can support live videos and reduce the waiting time to 8 minutes for the above case. With the same waiting requirement for a hot video, the new scheme can greatly reduce the bandwidth requirements and provide heterogeneous users' services
