Comcast vs Level3

Level3 took over the Netflix deal from Akamai. By undercutting Akamai’s pricing. That’s how they get their business, they buy market share purely on price. They have been offering CDN services at price points so low (isn’t price dumping illegal?) that there has to be a catch. And there is. Access providers are paying the bill.

Speaker @ Cross Media Cafe

Immovator is organizing the Cross Media Cafe about Connected TV. The connected TV is going to revolutionize broadcasting. We have been talking about this for many years. When is it going to happen? What are the trends? Expectations? Who are the leading companies in this field? Will OTT users cut the cord on cable?

I am one of the speakers. I have a number of topics to discuss and share. First I am going to talk about the need to scale the Internet beyond it’s physical capacity. I might do another crowdsourcing demo to show how limited broadband and especially mobile broadband networks are.

If there’s time I am going to claim that the concept of the Set Top Box is dead. Tablets and phones are the new interactive TV’s in the palm of your hand, and wireless technologies like Apple’s AirPlay and Wireless USB let you playback the content in HD quality on the big screen.
