Quality programming should be part of the pay-TV discussion

Jim Barthold, FierceIPTVWhen one talks about pay-TV competition, quality programming is rarely a part of the discussion. Deliberately or not, multichannel video programming distributors have focused on broadband speeds and the availability of "content" rather than the availability of high-quality content. Partially that is because most MVPDs have access to the same programming but can compete on speed. But by diverting attention to broadband, pay TV providers have opened the door for the likes of Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX), which strolled through with quality programming that is now being recognized by traditional TV awards presenters and which, ironically or not, can only be accessed by someone paying for an MVPD's broadband connection.  Commentary
