ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts of video Web site Virtual Digital Cable (VDC) to acquire the rights to stream programs from some cable television networks in the U.S. The firm charges $11.95 per month for about 20 channels. According to VDC COO Scott Wolf, his company's inability to secure linear cable programming has been due to external influences from large multiple system operators. Wolf said that VDC has been talking to smaller cable operators about licensing its technology to them.
