Cable TV Apps: Where Art Though?
Which led me to think: Where is the cable app experience? Is it just me, or does it seem to be lacking?
I find this cable app void somewhat surprising. I know there’s a lot of R&D taking place at CableLabs , and the platforms for cable app development are in place. Yet, to date, their apps are MIA. You would think a resource like CableLabs would give the cable industry an advantage. Perhaps they are lying in wait and will dazzle us all soon, leapfrogging their telco competitors. But for the time being, telcoTV seems to have the lead, with cable playing catch up.
