Re: Redundancy
freehe, ElizabethV,

Of course one logical niche for many smaller companies is in repackaging rather than directly creating or distributing content -- and that is almost the quintessential cloud function.

Re: Cloud
I agree. I think the Cloud could help in a lot of aspects. However, the Cloud has its own security issues..

Cloud
If a company wants to offer streaming or is currenlty offering streaming and has issues with privacy, moving to the cloud is a great option. In addition, if speed and latency are issues the cloud is a great option. A company would have to weigh the pros and cons prior to choosing.

Re: Redundancy
@elizabethv. Good point. However, large companies can more easily move to the cloud versus smaller companies. It also boils down to good senior leadership. If you don't have leaders that have a good vision and don't have staff who keep up with technology you will lag behind.

Re: Redundancy
@Joe Stanganelli. I agree. It depends on the company's strategic plan. It also depends on the current and future needs of the company as well as their budget.

Re: Redundancy
@Joe Stanganelli - I agree, it may not be necessary, but I can't see how it would at least be helpful to most companies. The cloud allows for a larger memory database, and the more "stock" a company can offer, the better off they'll be!

Flexibility in the face of uncertainty
The exact what and how of consumer demand for video has so far proved to be completely unpredictable, and the menu of possible technologies is enormous. The old goal of locking in a low price or paying for infrastructure up front is about as dead as an idea can be (and really always has been; think of how silly it was that they gave Milton Berle a 30-year-contract at the dawn of television).  Material stuff has to be handled physically, which means people have to go to it, clean it, maintain it, replace it as the world changes. Virtual systems in the cloud move at very literal light speed.

It turns out that the old question about "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?" -- which was actually just the way medieval theologians posed the question of whether an idea had a minimum physical space for its expression -- is actually a question of keen commercial interest.  (And the answer is, a whole lot, if they're well-paid virtual networked angels!)

Redundancy
It depends primarily if they're doing streaming as well as cable delivery (which most are, I think), but redundant cloud architecture is crucial to consistency, stability, and customer experience. Netflix's experience has demonstrated that.
