This is what Apple tried...failed. What Google was attempting to do, didn't work. Intel will run into the same thing that every other distributor does...CONTENT costs.
As others have pointed out, it isn't a la carte either. In fact, Intel is saying this is going to be a HIGH END service not a value play.
Always happy to hear your thoughts and comments.
I'm curious what you can tell us about DirecTV's - or your - thoughts about the landscape, say 10 years from now.
By then, our internet pipe should be capable of 10 gajillion mb down, allowing anyone to provide HD, 3D, 4K, whatever is state of the art.
Does DirecTV look at their business model with an eye towards being potentially obsolete as technology advances?
As one of DirecTV's very, very early customers with a Sony SAT-A1, back in late '94, early '95, - I think that was the model number - I've always wondered how an advanced company pours billions into a technology that x years from now could be looked at the way we view 8 track tapes.
Please take this question with the intended spirit... from a happy customer, appreciative of what your company provides.
