The annual convention of the National Association of Broadcasters in Las Vegas will be dominated by discussion of new distribution models and we will be watching for any new announcements. Here, as at the National Show of the National Cable Television Association, the influence of internet protocol television is evident as telcos prepare to take on the entrenched cable competition. In a fortnight the IPTV and Telco Triple Play Forum takes place in Amsterdam and I look forward to seeing you there.
