Bet networks are trying Fallon Dennis -- has all the detailed Dan S this is gonna be act -- a clash of some really big egos -- -- -- Barry Diller who invented the fox broadcasting network right 1984.
The guy who did the movie of the week ABC and he -- invested twenty million dollars of IBC's money and Mario this cell phone TV surfaced.
That insists that because the government gave the broadcasters free spectrum.
Or by golly we can just put some -- pull it down and sell to people -- bucks a month in New York.
Now -- crux of this is this tiny dime sized antenna.
And how are -- gonna distribute.
Thousands of them because they argue that you know you're allowed to how to -- to Best Buy by an antenna and put up and take a broadcast -- sold our comfort we'll do that never mind that.
We're taking that signal we're taking the -- what's what's -- what what's not we're not given networks any kind of cut and also look at who they hurt.
They hurt the networks themselves they hurt their affiliate TV station group.
They -- Hollywood studios that made the programming and local cable citizens that pay the local station to also carry that programming.
And I think Barry -- -- when he did this that these guys are gonna sue network executives told me last week or two weeks ago they're gonna sue and now they have.
They're gonna lose I think.
How does it not amount to pirating I admit -- -- arrangement.
You have to add -- -- -- -- perhaps -- -- because.
CBS AB CNBC and fox broadcasting -- because they have spectrum that was -- given to them by the government free of charge.
The notion is that this is free over the air T has to pay for anyone can pull it down twice that wrong but clearly.
You're not courts -- -- to don't want incorporated the other Kasikov start called -- you can broadcast signal.
And sell the intent Arad and selling their subscription they're arguing they're selling the antenna but in fact there they're taking the content and then I had another network is they've come it.
When they have to finally get it into your cell phones.
They have to convert the signal that they originally got from the -- holiday digital thing for the southern when you start to convert manipulate you now -- that you now violating copyright do you think it's gonna work when you look at that look like how great to think the technology is going to be I think it's I don't work I think Barry -- while the smartest guys in the mediator -- have -- -- field he does not put one million dollars -- this if excludes yen doesn't work.
By the way fastest growing 75 million homes nationally are homes that have cable access.
But no cable TV anymore they just got a regular -- air broadcast I think Barry kind of sees that this is gonna be a a growing market perhaps they're gonna shut him down.
And Smartphones themselves can't -- the antenna -- on their own I think that the antennas into going in neighborhoods and stuff like that.
Rather than in each little individual phone.
Think of of how would Haslett will be to have to get to each person and send them out -- he just set him up in neighborhoods all over the place Dennis thank you are intends to.
