Our media players are updated every couple of weeks via a satellite feed with about 4GB of new video content. Old videos are deleted in order to make space for the new stuff in order to keep the content library below 500GB for legacy reasons. On top of that it's also picking up site specific stuff, new album artwork, etc.
