Telecom and media executives offer a more pessimistic – or realistic – view. A recent survey by consulting firm Accenture found that only 4% of telecom, broadcasting and media executives think IPTV will generate significant revenue in the coming year.

None of the phone-company managers surveyed thought IPTV would boost revenue in the next 12 months – and, perhaps most surprising, only about half are confident Net television will generate revenue in three years’ time.

“We started to see a gap between what telecom executives were saying and doing and what their equipment and software providers were saying, and what was being hyped in the press,” says Greg Douglass, global managing director of Accenture’s media and entertainment practice.
