Its very interesting how catch up TV properties are viewed (or not viewed) in Australia.

If a program is to be aired on the ABC and a user feels that he/she will miss this program they will often state “I’ll watch in on iView “.

This is because the ABC invested early in the iView platform which enables users to watch almost anything shown on the ABC. Its a system available online, iphone, ipad, Android, Xbox, WD TV etc and it just works and works well.

In contrast the commercial channels have also finally offered catch up services but have done little to make it known that they exist.

If users are faced with the desire to watch two programs that happen to on at the same time on competing commercial networks they will often look at ways to watch one and record the other (for later viewing) either using a PVR or Foxtel IQ. In fact its already known that many opt for Foxtel because of the sports content but it would be interesting to ascertain how many opt for Foxtel for the IQ function, that is, the ability to record.

Many don’t consider the commercial catch up services because its just not widespread enough that they exist or that they offer the service without asking for anything in return, like subscription fees or membership.

 

Energy company Enron pioneered the idea of internet bandwidth trading – the buying and selling of spare communications capacity – back in 2000. Like its creator, the idea crashed and burnt a couple of years later. Now, a new Australian company, intabank, has revived the concept.

Intabank allows companies needing additional, short-term connectivity to purchase it from others with excess capacity, rather than buying from service providers that normally require a long-term commitment. It is the brainchild of chief executive Andrew Sjoquist, and sales and marketing director David McGrath, co-founders of Australian cloud provider ASE.

Last February, in an interview with the technology blog TechCrunch, a senior Google executive expressed a rather philosophical – even postmodernist – view on the future of maps.

"If you look at a map and if I look at a map, should it always be the same for you and me? I’m not sure about that, because I go to different places than you do," said Daniel Graf, director of Google Maps for mobile.

By mid-May, as Google announced the upcoming release of the new version of its flagship map service, it became clear that Graf wasn’t joking.

Samsung says it has successfully tested super-fast 5G wireless technology which would eventually allow users to download an entire movie in one second.

Despite the fact that major countries including Australia, Britain and China have yet to complete their 4G mobile phone network roll-out, the South Korean electronics maker claims its new technology could offer ”ubiquitous” access to ultra high-speed networks operating at 100 times present speeds and offering regular gigabit access.

Google’s YouTube video service is dipping its toe into pay television by starting a subscription service with 30 content creators, including children’s programmers Sesame Street and Muppet creator The Jim Henson Co, and the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

YouTube, the world’s largest video website, allows creators to set subscription fees and accept advertisements, at their discretion, for the channels they create.

For $US4.99 a month, subscribers can get golf lessons from the PGA Golf Academy. The Laugh Factory charges $US2.99 for clips of stand-up comedy routines and Henson charges $US2.99 for full length episodes of Sid the Science Kid and Fraggle Rock.

YouTube has spoken repeatedly about its intent to experiment with paid channels, and has made no secret about its intent to be a major player in quality content.

"If feels to me as if history is repeating itself," said Tony Vinciquerra, former chairman of News Corp’s Fox Networks Group. "In the early ’80s cable providers subsidised channels to enhance offerings to consumers and increase penetration. Fast forward to today, and YouTube is subsidising the development of new content offerings."

YouTube will feature content from traditional TV and film producers, company executives said, and at the launch featured children’s videos from National Geographic and videos from cable channel HDNet.

That could eventually be a threat to cable and TV operators, but no time soon, said Richard Greenfield, a media analyst with BTIG.

"I think everyone who creates video programming should be worried about the growth of new content channels," he said. "Broadcast TV has been hurt by cable. Broadcast is still a very large business despite fragmentation."

Content creators will get most of their revenue from subscriptions, as they already do from advertising on the site, according to company officials.

In March, YouTube said on its blog that it has more than 1 billion unique users a month. The new subscription service will be available in 10 countries at launch.

YouTube has spent more than $US100 million to help about 150 media partners create and promote specialised YouTube video channels dedicated to topics ranging from food to sports.

"Consumers have gotten used to getting their content on the web," said Laura Martin, senior analyst with Needham and Co. "The question is whether they will pay for it."

REDMOND, Wash. — April 22, 2013 — Small businesses are losing more than US$24 billion in productivity each year when nontechnical employees, referred to as involuntary IT managers (IITMs), are tasked with managing their companies’ IT solutions. This loss is a direct result of IITMs taking time away from primary business activities, according to an AMI-Partners small-business study commissioned by Microsoft Corp.
