Yeah, um, lots of people. Not sure what rock you've been hiding under, but it's been around for quite some time.
Granted, it's not quite as "perfect" as it could be, and uses less bandwidth (edit: less bandwidth than MPEG-2 HD from cable, or MPEG-4 from Sat.), but it's pretty amazing that it looks as good as it does.
edit 2: Yes, Netflix has been streaming 1080p for some time now. It looks pretty good on my PS3 to TV.
My point was internet speed in this country is not fast enough for 4K to be successful with streaming. I remember trying to download an HD movie on my old DSL connection , it took like 4 hours.
Maybe by the time 4K (or better ) is released, internet speeds will be adequate and widespread, but since so many people have current HDTV's, I dont think a higher resolution HD even has a chance, in the near future.
Whats the average connection in this country, 5Mbps? And that is blown up by people who have ultra-fast.

said by ITALIAN926:You hit the nail on the head, Streaming over what? Some people say they like Streaming because they are Cord Cutters, so I guess to them Streaming is Wireless. So Streaming HD 720p Wireless is not going to happen, and don't even talk about Copper DSL. That only leaves Verizon FiOS or Google Fiber for good quality HD Streaming.
