HBO Going "Over the Top"
This is very interesting news, and as some have said, the devil is in the details, but for now the news that HBO will be offering some content online for people not currently paying for their cable service is a big deal. Even though we all know this kind of thing is coming, only HBO has the market leverage to pull this kind of thing off. Now we wait for more information. Is this a service with a limited sub-set of HBO content, old stuff or a sampling; or is this a full-fledged service rivaling an HBO cable subscription? Time will tell. One is merely interesting. The other is a game changer. Depending on which we get, it will be very interesting to see how Comcast reacts. As it is, today stock in Netflicks dipped sharply. Here we go, stumbling toward a brave new video world.
