US coaltion to lobby for greater video competition

A new US advocacy coalition including the likes of Google, CCIA and TiVo has been formed to push for video device competition.

The new coalition will look to demonstrate to policymakers at the FCC and on Capitol Hill that there is broad support to promote competition and innovation by making video networks more available to third-party devices.

“The market is driving video consumers to go over-the-top, break the bundle and now unlock the box,” comments Chip Pickering, CEO of COMPTEL. “A more robust marketplace for set-top boxes and other video navigation devices is vital to ensuring that consumers, device manufacturers and content providers can receive maximize benefits from the rapid changes occurring in how consumers are viewing content.”
