  • 8. Little Strategic Collaboration So Far  For studios ◦ DVDs and TV still rule ◦ Cable MSOs are the strategic partners ◦ Carriers are considered  Pipe providers  An emerging TV programming outlet  A source of advertising and sponsorship $$  For carriers ◦ Been riding the mobile wave ◦ Other vertical markets – financial, healthcare, retail – are considered bigger ◦ Focus on cloud-based enterprise services across industries Global Carriers Making Online Profitable 8 8
