Re: Won't everyone be OTT soon?
I have an Amazon Fire TV stick and noticed they now have an app for Sling TV.  I almost, nearly, signed up for the free trial period (although having to enter a credit card is always almost if not a showstopper, then a show delayer for me).

When it's that easy though, adding a small App as a stream channel, and as CenturyLink rolls out Gig fiber, it seems like a we're going to take that $100/month sent to the cable company and use it for these kinds of OTT plugins.

My only thought is...when does the (T)op provider start raising the rent!

Won't everyone be OTT soon?
It seems like that's where everything is headed and the trick is to get there or get left out. Then it will come down to how the OTT service is priced and packaged and how good your broadband is. 

I am assuming most of current hold-up is content licensing issues?
