MRG has published a new report by Steven Hawley of tvstrategies titled “The Connected Car – New Opportunities for Service Providers, their Suppliers and Software Developers.” The new report provides an in-depth introduction and analysis of the Connected Car, which is the next great market opportunity for companies that provide telecommunications, pay-TV, online video and digital home solutions to consumers. This opportunity is equally available to companies that provide the devices, software, and infrastructure elements that enable those solutions.
On August 15, I released my analysis of Google TV. It’s available for sale via the Publications page on my Web site.
This week, Carol Wilson of Light Reading interviewed me and wrote a story about the report and my positions on Google TV – in general terms. I believe that Google TV will be fighting an uphill battle right from the get-go, and I have lots of advice for broadband operators, Telcos and ISPs that think Google TV is a shortcut to video services.
Thanks for the great write-up, Carol!
