Re: IBC
Adi,

I know you are only saying that because it is what the Master Hierarch of Earth for the Lizard Men ordered you to say.  People can read all about it in the Journal of Lizardology, where a team of Harvard-trained Ph.D. lizardologists couldn't believe the six weird tricks that will maintain lizard men as the lords of our planet.

Re: IBC
Haha! That's how it'll go. People willcomplain, markets will respond, people will complain some more. 

Related: We pay for a few streaming services and it's less than cable. We could pay a little more to get ALL the content we won't watch but choose not to do so. We have plenty of things in queues we might never see. No need to pay extra for entire channel chunks of the same.

Re: IBC
mhhf1ve,

I wonder if there isn't a generations-long "rock paper scissors" game with a la carte versus curated content; people complain about paying for content they never consume, so content packages get narrower and narrower till it's a la carte; but then people complain about not having time to shop the infinite market, so aggregators get back into it with tightly curated aggregates; but then people complain that they never get any new content to consume, it's all rehashes of the same narrow stuff, so the market shifts to mixed packages with the most popular content paying for things people might like to try out .... but then people complain about paying for content they never consume ...

The one dependable constant is "people complain."

Re: IBC
Ariella,

Based on a few, too brief visits to Amsterdam -- all for conventions  and conferences -- I would say that to lure IBC away from Amsterdam, the best strategy would be for the rival city to become Amsterdam. Possibly including changing its name.

Re: So much to do so little time
I completely agree. It all does seem cool, but a lot to handle and get together.

Re: IBC
mhhf1ve  - Oh, I'm pretty sure someone will mention him  at some point. But I think there's more concern about outright fake news sites, that publish whatever they want, and the proliferation of "news" on social media, where just about anyone with an internet connection can say whatever they want -- and at least some people will believe it.

afwriter - been a few more times than I'd like to remember....and yes, it's intense. There's a lot going on, and you want to get as much as you can out of it.

Re: IBC
OTT may not exactly be giving consumers what they want -- if they fragment the content market into dozens of silos. Consumers have wanted a la carte channels for years, but we may soon regret it if the a la carte menu becomes an infinite scroll of choices that each cost more in aggregate than bundles would have.

Re: IBC
Certainly transformative is the right word. OTT is giving consumers what they want. It's hard to say this is disrupting companies that have the capability to compete in these environments.

Re: IBC
In a way it's true that there's no bad publicity if no one remembers the context of anything... which is the direction the news I headed with "debates" that consist of every issue getting equal weight from two opposing sides.
