So is this the start of yet another monopoly?
Why hasn’t anyone else gotten into this? It’s not like there are major infrastructure setup pains involved – just buy a darn satellite and start broadcasting – it’s not like it’s hard to do for someone with a lot of cash and people – something that matches all media companies!
Content is the big challenge of course. So any of the big guys with content, could easily started a satellite radio service. So why hasn’t anyone done it?
When are they going to make it easy for you and me to start our own radio stations? Oh wait, we can do that already :-)….
Ok, now I get it. It is because On-broadcast (push) radio cannot compete with On-demand (pull) radio.
The consumer wins, after all.
