Online Video is Expensive

August 28, 2007

Great post by Jackson West on newteevee.com about the current cost structure for online video delivering. In times of You Tube & co in many people minds there is the opinion it is cheap and nearly for free to deliver video online…
Well… read Jacksons post. Delivering high quality videos online is still incredible expensive compared to delivering video over broadcast, cable or satellite. The good news is that it’s getting cheaper.

Really free for the content provider is just the so called “peercasting” (peer to peer + broadcasting). Over the p2p networks the users themselves pay the bill for all the traffic.
