Telcos to Do TV: Will It Work?
Will telcos be able to do to cable TV (IPtv) what cable TV is starting to do to telcos with IP telephony?
And with the possible exception of SuperPages, will the remaining U.S. telco-YP owners spin off their directories to subsidize/retire debt associated with their sexier, expensive new ventures?

telco have been here before – TeleTV – even hired the best tv guy around. A total failure. Without a wholesale change of culture and orientation – another failure lies ahead. They're best at running monopolies – trouble is technology has essentially eliminated monopolies except for delivering traditional community services – police, fire, garbage etc.
