Aereo, 25%?

Not a chance, unless he breaks the pay-tv barrier and offers up cable-tier content, and does so at a much lower price than cable can currently offer.

Re: Aereo, 25%?

Maybe he hopes to strike some deals with cable companies and bundle it with their TV services? It would be a win/win for both of them. If not, then I doubt he'll break 12.5% in 5 years. The target audience for this service, people not using OTA/Cable/Hulu, is simply not very large.

Doubtful that the Aereo-enables-MSOs-to-evade-retransmission-consent theory survives. The parlor-trick ("personal dime-sized antennas") doesn't pass the duck test, no matter how much popular appeal it might have among a modest audience that includes a few judges.

cars and internetz

As long as they can keep tv screens or other distracting information from being put up within eye view of the driver, who cares what it is. It's when they focus on something other than driving that causes accidents.

Scaring Some Amerikans Away...

Well, perhaps there's some immediate good from all of this. Maybe SOME sheeple will figure out that it's NOT a good idea to post pics of yourself doing lines and every other tidbit about you on facedrool.

MAYBE... just maybe... they'll figure out that someone is NOT your friend unless you can call them at 2 am to bail you out and they will be there, or they will spend a weekend helping you move, or paint your place.

AT&T offers cheaper Mobile Share shared data plan options

Ya.. Right..

I think "AT&T" and "cheaper" shouldn't be used in the same sentence.
