The content people know they're being taken to the cleaners by the pipe guys and distributors It's big bundles, skinny bundles; huge bundles, diddly bundles and no bundles.

Content Insider #531 - Choking Content Delivery By Miles Weston Unlimited data is a lot like insurance. It's great as long as you don't use it. If you're enjoying your entertainment OTT then published download data speeds can vary...dramatically.

Even the best content delivery folks - Akami, Limelight, CDNetworks, Facebook, Google, Amazon - ultimately have to deliver through your provider. SMPTE, IEEE and other standards groups are working to make your streams take up less space on "their" pipes. ...Read More »
