In this paper, we propose a service differentiation incentive for P2P streaming system, according to peers' instant contributions. Also, a repeated game model is designed to analyze how much the peers should contribute in each round under this incentive. Simulations show that satisfying streaming quality is achieved in the Nash Equilibrium state.
