Comcast is pioneering yet another business venture, internet protocol television (IPTV). IPTV will allow the full features and benefits of having a cable box without one. All the information is delivered over the internet so any compatible web enable TV or laptop will have full access to Comcast content with the familiar menus. Comcast is currently testing this technology at MIT. Students and faculty simply connect to the schools network and have instant access to live TV along with video on demand.

This is a clever move to keep customers that are contemplating switching off their cable because of travel and has the potential to penetrate new markets. These services will not replace cable boxes anytime soon but is another example of developing technology to reduce overhead; in this case infrastructure, equipment and installation/repair technicians.

Is your company still innovating?
