I'm pleased to be joined once again by Colin Dixon, senior partner at The Diffusion Group, for the 126th edition of the VideoNuze Report podcast, for Mar. 23, 2012. This week finds Colin in London, providing him an even better perspective on our first topic this week, Sky's new over-the-top service called NOW TV, which it will launch this summer. Colin is bullish on NOW TV and likes the lessons it provides for U.S. pay-TV operators.
Next, we turn our attention to the numerous stories that have popped up this week about owners of the new iPad bumping up against their wireless carriers' data caps. While Apple is touting the new iPad's higher screen resolution and 4G speed, those are both contributing to the device being a serious data hog. Some early users are learning this the hard way. Does this mean iPad video streaming will be mainly a WiFi in-home experience? Could this real-world limitation put a dent in the mania around Apple's latest iPad? Listen in to learn more!
