TV, Heads Up!!

Another fair warning is being yelled at the TV industry – I wonder if they are hearing it.  Om Malik reports again that the Skype founders are steadily moving on with their next venture aimed at disrupting traditional TV, much like they shattered some pretty solid walls in the voice world.

What Zennstrom and Friis are exactly up to is almost irrelevant.  They are so many different ways that TV can be attacked, if one is armed with the right arsenal.  TiVo proved that the audience is keen to adopt new technology.  MySpace and YouTube proved that the appetite for microchunked content is voracious.

The Skype team have the credentials and the cash to take it on seriously.  I look forward to the news coming from their direction.
