Fwd: Comcast's $2.2 Trillion Nightmare

Isnt going to happen.  Cable is a broadcast medium.  At the physical layer, its much more efficient the trying to unicast live tv.

Also comcast with tivo is the only system that can do cable tv and internet video in one box.

So far apple and google have only shown how clueless they are about video.  Its not a technical issue.  I showed D1 video over the internet to the studios in 1996 to 1999.  My conclusion they have no hurry, or motivation to change.  Now that there partners control the last mile, piracy is also not a real threat like it was for the music industry. Its so tightly bound with legal contracts that change is nearly impossible except for the disney, nbc and other players at that scale.

They will never let tv live up to its true potential.
