Developments in Cable Broadband Networks

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Hyun-Cheol Chung (OECD) describes Developments in Cable Broadband Networks.

ABSTRACT: The position of cable operators within the pay TV market has changed drastically in recent years. Although video service remains core to the cable industry’s business model, cable TV’s market share has been dropping significantly with intense competition from direct broadcast satellite services (DBS), Internet protocol Television (IPTV) services, digital terrestrial television services (DTT) and finally from over-the-top (OTT) service providers that supply video over an existing data connection from a third party. Cable still has a strong market position for video, particularly because of its existing relationships with content providers but the market is likely to become more competitive as other substitutable offers become available over a range of media.

I know that the competition is getting harder due to more promotions and free or upgraded equip. I work at DISH Network and DISH strives to provide the lowest pack and most channels to give a consumer value. The HD free for life and award winning receivers are just a few ways that DISH is stepping up to the plate for a better cheaper service.
