Re: Licensing It's astonishing, isn't it? How many times will Silicon Valley companies try to conquer television, only to get their heads handed to them? Intel did a lot of things right but the economics of TV content are an obvious obstacle.

Re: Licensing Agreed. In early press statements they were so certain that THEY would be the ones to break the content licensing logjam that companies like Apple, Google, Microsoft and many others could not. I remember statements suggesting that those companies failed because they simply weren't smart or aggressive enough, not that the entire licensing field is rigged specifically to prevent these kinds of disruptive solutions from coming to market.

The $500 million price tag certainly seems ambitious.

Licensing How are giant companies like Intel and Microsoft getting this far into OTT ventures without realizing the abomination of content licensing economics? They might want to have someone at least monitor the industry headlines before they invest hundreds of millions in this kind of thing.
