Re: What's to debate? 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.
