Likewise, there are now hundreds of companies offering video management and video player management platforms, with Brightcove yet again lowering prices after raising them around a year ago (a clever strategy, but the market is familiar with their tricks by now).
Even the customer supply market is suffering from a glut, with retail giant Tesco now announcing that it is ending the domestic broadband provisioning market.
The result of this is that there will be the inevitable mergers, bankruptcies and price wars.
Companies like Tesco, who are used to 'piling them high and selling them cheap' will benefit, as will providers like Level 3 who own the infrastructure and can therefore underprice at will.
Differentiating is going to become more and more important and who wouldn't bet against Tesco offering Internet TV sometime in the future ? After all, they already sell the boxes, the content and now the broadband.
