Re: VMedia IPTV is Teksavvy planning on participating?

Technology is the easy part... it's all about licensing fees. I can't imagine as a small startup how difficult it must be to deal with Rogers and Bell who own the majority of specialty channels. "Carry TSN2 and I'll leave Sportsnet in the double digits" else it's all nice and fun 'till someone moves someone's channel up into the stratosphere. But if you don't got that clout and weight to throw around... eep.

Then again, in Toronto at least, you can get 10+ channels easy with an antenna. More if you're high up, in Oshawa you can get Rochester and Buffalo stations, then you're up to 20-30 channels, FREE, crisp 19mbps HD (depending on how the broadcaster allocates it of course) The rest you can *coughfindontheinternet*
