Are the cable guys experts at this?
At least they understand the goal:
“There will come a time fairly soon when we'll be using the power of a range of technologies and say that our entertainment experience looks like this: a truly personalised service that recognises you and your device, understands what you like, makes recommendations accordingly and maximises viewing across screens and locations.
"Content rights aside, ultimately it won't matter what device you're going to consume this entertainment experience on, or where – we will get the smarts right in the network, in the home and in the app software. We'll be able to take what was initially one asset and turn it into the right format for those endpoints, whether it’s smaller form factors such as a tablet or on really big 1080p or 4K TVs.
Do you really think that cable has the skills and capital to field a fully integrated solution? Hint, it's a virtualized "blade-per-viewer" service and there are a few retail, social media and search companies that do.
BTW, great to see that the old SEAC BLM gets an occasional trade reference.
