Whoever Controls the Download Pipe Wins


When most retail TV devices are almost identical except for the casing and colour how do the CE Manufacturers differentiate…By offering On-Line Services via the Internet.  What we call an OTT offering.  Why then does my Orange IPTV Portal for my managed ISP connected Orange STB run VOD and Streaming Video well but my YouTube (Open Internet) connection from another Non-Orange device NOT work sufficiently well enough to view video.  Buffering, Buffering, Buffering – Frustration, Frustration, Frustration – It is plainly obvious that they do not want me using the bandwidth for non-Orange content.  Methinks it is illegal but it is plain to see “chez moi”.  If Orange content was worth the effort I would potentially use it…but it isn’t…Philips may be offering its Portal and Films but if they don’t control the wires to the house then you will here a revival of “I can’t get no satisfaction and I’ve tried and I’ve tried and I’ve tried”.
