Link Harvest: Best Article Yet On Link Between Comcast/NBC, TV Evrywhere, and why It's Bad.

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/15/magazine/15FOB-Phenomenon-t.html?_r=1

This article says ties together very well a number of threads I've discussed in recent days -- that the near total overlap of broadband access providers with paid video service providers creates an enormous incentive to diddle delivery of online video content to your TV to prevent broadband subscribers from "cutting the cord" and giving up cable subscriptions (and challenging cable operator control over video providers). The Comcast/NBC merger is partly Comcast's effort to lock up enough content to ensure that doesn't happen.
