I am convinced of the following – Once Pay TV (especially Cable Cos) providers understand the ($) power of Narrowcasting and Broadcasting using IP and Cloud based architecture and delivery, they will be able to counter the disruptive distribution models that have popped up, viz OTT.

Or they will slowly be consigned to declining Pay TV revenues and finally end up as “dumb pipes” i.e. forever suffer from “tunnel vision”.
