Besides Netflix, does anyone else offer CDN boxes for their services?

I'm also guessing that most content won't benefit from multicast to homes too much?

I can see where multicast benefits sports and news (and probably catching commercials for people). But in a world where I'm more than happy to pay Amazon $25-40 a show/season to avoid commercials, I'm guessing live/broadcast TV will get even less popular (I get news via YouTube - so that's not even live for me anymore).

This use to be the case.

While it might lower OPX that surely won't result in lower retrans, will just be more profit for them.

We're down as well on video subs, this is 99% due to rising prices.

This is where it's heading for sure, in the end it will cost more as well since each will be charging more than the per sub rates we're getting charge. They'll have to in order to keep revenue the same.

When ESPN offers an OTT product I have no doubt it will be near the $20 per month, for 5 channels or so?
