There are several free solutions, some of which you may already have.

Windows 2003 and Windows 2008 both have the capability to install
Windows Streaming Media Server as a free add-on.  For a prerecorded
file, once you set up your playlist on a web page you are good to go
especially if you host your own web server in-house.  

Besides the Windows option, there is the Unreal Streaming Media Server
that can stream in MPEG-4 format which is a more universal than the WMV
format.  There is also the option of using VLC as a streaming media

Subject: video hosting

I have a teacher who does a class play every year.  She has three
sections in this class, so the play is done three times.  She wants it
recorded on video and copied for all the families, which is roughly 60
copies.  The video is 30 minutes or less, but still is a large file.
Does anybody have a recommendation for video hosting, rather than
burning all the time it would take to make copies?  Thanks.
