Alan Moore blogs about a discussion in Electronic News:
Electronic News: Whats the difference between Internet TV and IP TV?
Lin: Internet TV is viewed as an open distribution platform, where content can be delivered via this open platform directly to subscribers. Unfortunately, that limits the telcos role as dumb pipe providers, which doesnt allow them a lot of room for getting revenue. From a telco point of view, thats their defense.
Aalaei: They should look at Google. What does Google actually own? All they own is a Web site. What they have that no one has is the business intelligence to take advantage of it and make it more intelligent.
Alan adds: “I believe iPTV can work as a hybrid model of content, community, connectivity and commerce.”
