1. The kooky thing is that the system is designed to avoid copyright issues. The idea of assigning each customer an antenna is stupid; why not bring it in on one antenna and split it out for all customers? They needed the one antenna per customer to avoid getting sued for reselling the broadcast. Techdirt did a good job covering the case. I think the CEO’s line about the VCR hyperbole (Jack Valenti’s great Boston strangler quote) will be quite effective. And why do the networks care anyway? The streams still have the commercials. This is a pure money grab by the networks.

  2. The VCR quote is excellent and Barry Diller’s money should help too. I hope they make it.
