A cache-aided broadcast network is studied, in which a server delivers contents to a group of receivers over a packet erasure broadcast channel. The receivers are divided into two sets with regards to their channel qualities: the weak and the strong receivers, where all the weak receivers have statistically worse channel qualities than all the strong receivers. The weak receivers, in order to compensate for the high erasure probability they encounter over the channel, are equipped with cache memories of equal size, while the receivers in the strong set have no caches. Data can be pre-delivered to the weak receivers' caches over the off-peak traffic period before the receivers reveal their demands. Allowing arbitrary erasure probabilities for the weak and strong receivers, a joint caching and channel coding scheme, which divides each file into several subfiles, and applies a different caching and delivery scheme for each subfile, is proposed. It is shown that all the receivers, even those without any cache memories, benefit from the presence of caches across the network. An information theoretic tradeoff between the cache size and the achievable rate is formulated. It is shown that the proposed scheme improves upon the state-of-The-art in terms of the achievable tradeoff.
