FreeTube targets telcos' TV audience

You can find darn near anything on the Internet for free, or at least the tools to make it free. That's what new IPTV venture FreeTube reportedly is doing. The company is offering free IPTV content on its Web site, supported by no more than site advertising and a willingness of broadcasters and content players to do whatever they can to reach larger audiences.

On the surface, FreeTube sounds like something that could put a wrench in the somewhat delicate business models telcos have for IPTV. However, it could be more likely to attract the smaller independent programmers and user-generated video mavens that telcos aren't sure to how to include anyway. Perhaps telco dreams of Hollywood stardom are safe after all.
