Real-time ratings

Martin Geddes - Telepocalypse

James spots the increasing price of football TV rights as new IP-based entrants appear on the content distribution market.
It’s easy to explain. Real-time programming can’t be BitTorrented (or copied using your mate’s DVD writer). Yet. The supply of “famous” real-time events is fairly fixed. The demand is going up as there are more buyers who are more desperate. Expect to see the price of “now” to rise, and the price of “then” to fall.
Telepocalypse is on vacation for the next week. Have a nice time at work, everyone!
