IPTV World Forum, Day 2

9:15 AM -- It's the final day of the the IPTV World Forum North America in Chicago. There were more people in the lobby bar at the Hyatt than on the show floor yesterday, but the program itself is still chugging along with big service providers and IPTV experts. So, I'll be on hand to post a few updates, right below here, in the form of bullet points:
    Keep checking this page throughout the day to get show gossip, interview tidbits, and whatever else I can convey during the conference until my phone battery runs out.

    re: IPTV World Forum, Day 2 I think the carriers are pretty confident that they have a better customer service rep than cable and satellite cos. Yes, it's a low hurdle.

    re: IPTV World Forum, Day 2 @Phil: Wait -- bandwidth to the home is the *one* thing holding back U.S. IPTV?

    Consumer resistance would be up there too, I'd think. You've got the folks who just don't care, and (i'm guessing) others that hate/distrust their phone company too much to give them power over the TV.
