What We Learned: The Cable Show 2011

The cable industry converged on Chicago at The Cable Show last week, and, conveniently, service convergence was a key theme throughout.

But that just skims the surface on the tech trends that emerged or continued to grow at cable's annual confab.

Be on the lookout for our Cable Show coverage wrap-up, but in the meantime here are some of the big takeaways Light Reading's editors had after trolling the floor, covering sessions and holding meetings throughout the week:

    Great to see a surge in interest in RS-DVR - but if you're a programmer, why wouldn't you get ahead of this train by aggressively licensing content for VOD distribution?  With VOD, you at least have a seat at the table on negotiating terms on FF disable, digital ad insertion, etc.  If RS-DVR gets deployed broadly, the networks will have no one to blame but themselves for the destruction of their ad revenue model.
