Netflix has such a huge lead....
Netflix has existed in the US.. and no one in Europe bothered to try to replicate its success... and NOW they're trying to..? Netflix has such a huge lead in terms of content deal-making and brand recognition and the ability to data-mine what users like to watch. It will be difficult to really try to copy it. If Comcast and other ISPs in the US aren't trying to copy Netflix, there's probably a good reason for that. (Well, or that Comcast et al have a vastly different business model from Netflix - but that would presumably apply to other ISPs as well.)

Re: Pardon my dongle
Second-rate content isn't going to carry the day, even if ANYTHING that comes out of that dongle would be better than the prime-time offers from the big French networks. There's a reason people spend entire evenings in restaurants and cafes there. OK, maybe there's more than one reason, but an utter lack of network programming has to be one of them.

Re: Pardon my dongle
Not a lot of detail just yet but it seems to be a mix of movies on demand (from Orange Cinema Series), TV series from various parts of the world, as well as music streaming from the likes of Deezer. But the proof of the pudding will be in the eating. As they say in France.

Pardon my dongle
Is Orange saying what kind of content it will have to send over to its video dongles? Cos really, the content part is what's important.
