Out Of Pace

I'm pretty shocked that Pace has chosen to partner with Clearleap and ignore Vidiactive (with whom I am no longer involved) for its OTT strategy.

It just shows how short sighted the traditional players are in the TV market. Pace has been very successful recently, but I've heard more recent rumblings that key, strategic partners are totally disenamoured with the company (indeed, this came from their biggest customer), and as competitors like Samsung continue their drive into this market, you have to ask what advantage Pace has, lacking many key components in the delivery chain and teaming up with sub-par partners.
