The article focuses on the initiative of pay-TV operators such as Comcast Corp. and Time Warner Cable Inc. in building multi-screen TV offerings, pushing their video content beyond the TV to PC. The Diffusion Group says that such offerings are likely to experience significant market demand, thus, cable operators should charge for these offerings. It emphasizes that in the new models, once-disparate video services that served disparate video screens will be integrated into a single service.
