NBC to be 1st broadcast network to go all cable

Might take 5-7 years but NBC will cease to be a broadcast network by 2020. ABC to follow by 2023, then Fox by 2025 CBS may take until 2030. Enjoy OTA while it still exists.

Maybe all IP streaming? Comcast doesn't serve the entire country yet and something tells me if they only play nice with other cable providers (stiffing Telco carriers), the gub'ment won't stand for it. However, Comcast could serve the entire country if they took NBC off the air and went all IP streaming.

The Internet is going to make traditional TV viewing methods extinct.

And thats why there are data caps to prevent that.

Wired data caps will fade away soon enough.

But content is not going to be given away for a song.

No it won't... it's simply the next step to the way TV is _delivered_. TV _will_ still be delivered via cable from Comcast... it will jsut be handled via IP instead. So no real change. That is one reason Comcast is jumping on NBC... in order to stay in control of the product as well as the delivery. Product owners (studios) have control over how their content is delivered. This just keeps Comcast in control (in business).

IMHO.
