Pay-TV providers may be 'faking it until they make it, or kill the competition' in lieu of embracing technology, says Ashley J. Swartz, CEO and Founder of Furious-Minds. Swartz attended the recent Cable Show were conversations around increased broadband speed and reduced production time for IP delivered products was shared among cable providers, like Comcast.
Despite the promise of 300 Gig/second throughputs and 4K TV, bandwidth caps still remain in place and less than 50% providers have deployed TVE services , which are greatly tied to subscriber satisfaction levels according to BUSINESS WIRE's Premium TV network EPIX.
Watch Swartz tell the cable industry to 'put on their big boy pants' and innovate or die.
