Cox Kicks OTT Service to the Curb
This is very interesting because noone never seen this coming but like everyone is saying time will tell to see how this all works out in the long run. THis is also very shocking because the OTT is very sucessful with the systems they produces.

Re: Contrasting experiences in US and Europe
Cox is on the right path. Cox may have terminated the OTT service due to licensing conflicts with Comast X1. This is a silly question but shouldn't companies verify potential conflicts before they start testing a product?

They will keep trying until the get it right. Failure if just one step closer to success and since they don't have to answer to sharefolders they can fail as many times as they like. Thomas Edison failed at least 1,000 before becoming successful in inventing the light bulb.

Re: Contrasting experiences in US and Europe
Yahoo isn't exactly dead yet. A lot of other web properties would love to be in Yahoo's position with traffic and attention. It's just that Yahoo has had more negative than positive attention lately... and mostly focused on how its business is doing.

If Yahoo Screen had just one "hit show" or if Tumblr had taken off like Instagram... Yahoo would be in a very different place now, I think. If only Yahoo had at least ONE well-known property that was really hitting it out of the park... does it? Flurry doesn't count. 

It will be sad to see Yahoo Messenger bought and re-branded something else. (Yahoo-Verizon Messenger!)

Re: Contrasting experiences in US and Europe
> "Tumblr may not have been worth $1B by itself..."

Yahoo had some legitimate interest in trying to turn Tumblr into a mobile social media platform. Tumblr could have become another microblogging network comparable to Twitter and Instagram, and arguably, it HAS done better than G+ as a social media network.

The problem with Tumblr is that it's not capturing headlines as a social network with a particular niche. Sure, it's got a younger demographic... but it doesn't have an "easy to explain" kind of following. Twitter is for news junkies and activists. Tumblr... is... ??? 

Tumblr isn't dead yet, either... it hasn't monetized like Facebook... so it's sorta stuck in a Twitter-like position of trying out some ads and losing some users. It could turn around still. I think Tumblr doesn't launch too many new useful features quickly enough.. just like Twitter.

Re: Contrasting experiences in US and Europe
@Joe: They (Yahoo) just had its developer conference.  There was not much fanfare--however it seems as if they're continuing to push things along.  The question is whether it is enough or not.

Re: Contrasting experiences in US and Europe
No question @Joe they are still a force to be reckoned with.    As this case study that Mike Outlined, though, underscores is this:  Transformation entails being able to make the tough calls constantly and not wait too long--they're seeing the light though as they've formed the committee to explore strategic options.

@Joe:  For sure--and the more I think about it, the more jealous I get.    I can't but wonder whether in fact they could have pulled it off now though.
