Re: Reality check
Comcast was through acquisition. So, yes, if a CSP wants to invest tens of billions to buy into an industry, that's an option.

Reality check
The idea that a CSP should venture into video content development is more than a bit strange. It would be a little like Boeing deciding to launch a commercial airline business. Add in the fact that content development is far from certain as a profit-making business, and the strangeness grows. DT, KPN, and Vodafone are right to maintain their unenthusiasm.

Divergence is interesting
It's interesting to see companies take so many different approaches to the content quandry. I've become accustomed to businesses following a similar model; even high-end consumer brands seem to all have lower price models these days in order to compete on price. You can see how all these models may or may not work because of the huge cost involved in developing content, partnering - especially when it comes to the crazy money for top sports broadcasts, or the cost and risk of creating your own. I'd guess there'll be winners and losers in all models simply because creative processes and products are involved.
