Re: Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
The "No they're clueless" slice made me laugh. Other than that Telco really needs to get with the program. Videos are becoming a bigger and bigger thing each day. They need to reform a little and just come up wih a game plan and quick!

I agree they are 100% limiting themselves and can really do something great with the incorporation of videos. Like I said, vdeos are becoming huge and technology and companies must conform to the new ideas and learn what the new trend is and it's videos.

Beyond TV...
I think Telcos need to think beyond TV services. Sure, they've got a good thing going with DVR rental fees and bundles of channels now.... but that's not going to last for long. 

I'm thinking Telcos are going to need to get into the market of providing consumer software as a service? I could see Telcos selling a kind of thin client OS for apps? It seems like it's about time for thin clients to come back into fashion.

Google might have already beaten them to it (Again) with Chrome OS. But there are companies like Neverware that could fork Chrome OS and offer a telco-based solution to the residential market. And Google seems like it's going to dump Chrome OS for Android (or merge Chrome OS and Android), so....

Re: Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
freehe, great statistics! 

I would fully agree, video is becoming a significant part of the digital experience.  I believe that the Telco's are limiting themselves if they do not transform into the larger digital experience - recognizing the use of video.  They have a great opportunity to provide a wide array of services, but they need to develop the vision and capabilities first.

Maybe they need to watch more YouTube videos?

Re: Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
Telco continues to lag behind in technological advances. If they want to remain competitive they must seize on opportunities to increase revenue and longetivity in the industry. Everyone has watched a video at least once. That shows the power of video technology.

As of 4/24/14 1 billion people use Youtube. As of Spring 2015 only 9% of US small businesses use video. This is great opportunity to use video in the telco industry.

Here are some Youtube video statistics http://expandedramblings.com/index.php/youtube-statistics/

Re: Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
I think the 2% "clueless" votes were from disgruntled former employees. :) Great points DHagar.

Re: Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
Ariella, well there you go - very true.  Awareness is the first step and knowing where they are brings about an awareness of the changes taking place and may create the sense of urgency and/or opportunity.  Maybe progress after all.

Re: Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
Clearly, the results of this poll indicate the nos do have it, but at least most of them include a positve qualifier. Only 2% opted for the no and clueless. So that's encouraging for future progress.

Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
Mike, great poll results.  I believe this shows how truly transformative video and new technologies will be.

Telcos are still viewing new technology as "extended" market opportunities for their existing services/products.  I believe that is a mistake.  The smart companies, such as AT&T, are building platforms, realigning services/products, and as you point out preparing for new offerings in new vertical solutions.  Those are the companies that I believe are ready and will dominate the developing markets. 

Telcos need to think in entirely new context if they want to be prepared and take advantage of these opportunities.
