I totally agree with you, Feory. Why are consumers always asked to buy "packages" of programming? "Pure Internet TV," in my opinion, should allow you to watch only the stuff you want on as a la carte! Will that create any technology issue for the carriers?

The competition is just starting. But I can assure you that the biggest competition is regulation. Just as Congress wants to eliminate free conference calls providers because of the lobbying from the big telcos, we can be surprised here if IPTV and co suffer a surprise death. But they seem to be doing well; hope the regulation will work this time around

It's great to see IPTV grow and provide competition to cable and satellite, but it's still a "walled garden" approach to delivering video entertainment. I'd like to see more discussion on pure internet TV and where it's going relative to multichannel video subscription services.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
