IPTV Multicast Control

hello Experts


I need help as usual from experts . We are planning to implement for one of Service provider IPTV technology . The idea we will install Dish satellites and Head-ends , middleware , VOD server on SP , and on end users as home users we will install STB "Set Top Box". We have selected Cisco Headend and everything working over mpls using multicast very well , but our provider need to know the below:-

1-How SP control channels between endusers?. If user A need to see channels "A,B,C,D" and other user B need to see channels "E,F,J". Is this can be done by multicast groups ?.Is there any multicast management program , i know CMM "cisco multicast management" .

2-How can SP do billing for end users ?.
