Anybody else notice that until this article, cable companies haven't been so gung-ho on VOD lately. There really hasn't been that many announcements or future VOD plans, packages, and predictions coming from "big cable". Wasn't that supposed to be the big dbs killer? They seem to have ditched the VOD effort and more and more have admitted that PVR/DVR whatever you want to call it will be more than capable of competing with VOD.
VOD has about all the desirability as VD in my eyes. I can't see the masses turning cartwheels and rushing to return and embrace cable again on account of VOD alone when consumers can get to the exact same destination through an alterior and cheaper means (PVR/DVR). I'm with you on it being massively overhyped. Why pay X a month for VOD to see something you can currently grab for free now on a Dish DVR if you can stand waiting a bit longer?
