Fox’s latest anti-AllVid FCC filing suggests new pay-TV service is coming to gaming consoles

This is more interesting than useful as the battle for and against AllVid (the CableCARD replacement) continues onward. Not quite sure what to make of it.

As one of the media companies trying to convince the FCC that the new AllVid replacement for CableCARD is unnecessary, Fox recently called the FCC and informed it of negotiations with a pay-TV service that wanted to license channels and VOD for streaming to videogame consoles. Even as it frets over Time Warner’s TWCable iPad app, the filing suggests there’s plenty of innovation going on and availability of content for consumer electronics devices already.
