VideoNuze Podcast #284: Online Video is Making ESPN’s World More Complicated – Videonuze

I’m pleased to present the 284th edition of the VideoNuze podcast with my weekly partner Colin Dixon of nScreenMedia.

This week we turn our attention to ESPN, which was prominently in the news on Monday, when Disney CEO Bob Iger stated that he believes it’s inevitable that long term ESPN will be sold directly to consumers, instead of in the traditional multichannel bundle. To be fair though, Iger wasn’t ready to put any timeline on this move, so it’s clearly not happening any time soon.”

Wowza Predictions for Online Video in 2015

When I first started working on streaming media products in 1999, my co-workers and I were convinced that online video was going to be big someday. Fueled in large part by mainstream successes within the last decade by pioneers such as YouTube and Netflix, few would argue that online video ubiquity is spreading across the globe and “someday” has arrived.

Comcast Says Combined Company Wouldn’t Throttle Netflix or Any Other Online Video Provider – Tech Trader Daily –

This week’s Barron’s magazine includes a column I wrote about the Comcast (CMCSA) – Time Warner Cable (TWC) proposed merger. In response to the article, Comcast’s David Cohen, head of the firm’s regulatory affairs, wrote to amplify some remarks he made about over-the-top video services, and also to rebut a claim made by Reed Hundt.

On the first score, over-the-top, Comcast already has an offering that is comparable in some respects to services such as Netflix (NFLX). Cohen emphasized that he considers over-the-top to be something more comparable to traditional multi-channel video provider services, including cable and direct broadcast satellite. Comcast has never been able to find a business model that works for such services.”
