Yup. I remember that from when I had to sell Dish Network. No two people agree on what the right set of channels are, but they all agree that the channels they want should be in the cheaper package.

"a set of the channels folks want to watch" That's going to be even harder than a full line-up OTT.

It’s why I’ve held off for as long as I have. None of the options were right. They either required expensive private lines, or the costs were so high I ended up making no profit and I felt like it was too expensive to try to sell to the end user. Or the quality of the feed was junk.

Just give me a set of the channels folks want to watch for $30-$40/month and I can sell it.

I can’t sell a service where I need a $1,500/month private line. Or where the monthly rate ends up being $60 when I mark it up.

Or where the provider takes their entire head end down for a day while they move it.

That’s actually a good point. This is a rapidly moving area. I don’t want to choose the wrong technology/solution.

Maybe. Time will tell.

I think those that go over the public Internet don't have nearly the same lineup.

Well, the are all allowing all the other streamers to deliver it via the
public internet, why not RCTV?

Does not seem fair to discriminate against the smaller companies like this.

I agree that a VPN makes plenty of sense. I get why they do it but it adds
an expense that may take me a good bit of time to recover.
