Re: What's to debate? Having watched Hollywood act like anti-innovation boobs for so long, I'm simply saying why there's probably hesitation by some.
I agree with you. I've always thought the game console vendors were in the best position to take over the Internet video market since the appliances are already in the home -- and are clearly evolving into "do it all" devices.
Isn't the fierce debate obvious? Per the article they already make IPTV solutions for carriers. If they do their own TV thing, aren't they now competing with them?
If I was using an IPTV solution in my plant and suddenly all my XBox user's cut the video cord, I'd be pissed when I discovered my bed partner had a concubine in an apartment that I funded.
From a consumer perspective they should absolutely do it but the conflict within seems obvious. However, this wouldn't have stopped Microsoft in the past. Perhaps years in the FTC/DOJ woodshed has finally taken its toll.
Right -- that too..
