Endgadet has a good post on a content deal that Verizon has struck with CBS to carry its programming on the network provider’s FiOS network. This will offer consumers greater choice in delivery of CBS programming. And as the post points out it should stimulate other content producers to sign-up with IPTV providers:
This may well be the largest IPTV agreement of its kind to date, and should hopefully serve to encourage other content providers to open up their own offerings to Internet rebroadcast too, which would let us finally retire our unsightly old roof antenna for good.
These new fiber networks are igniting a revolution allowing consumers to have real choices of what they want to watch and how they want to get it.
