IS-2009-117: TVE vs. OTT - Are You Ready for a Throwdown?

This brochure from The Diffusion Group explores the battle between cable TV delivery of TV programs and movies versus direct access by customers via the Internet.  Cable operators are proposing TV Everywhere that allows Internet access only to cable TV subscribers.  There will be a battle between the walled-garden approach of TV Everywhere and distribution available to all via the Internet.  The author predicts the growth in Internet TV access from 20 million in 2009 to 63 million in 2014 with both walled-garden approach and open access co-existing.
