  • Cable firms targeting big business could have tougher road ahead
    Fran Caulfield, research director at The Insight Research Corp., assesses cable providers' efforts to attract more business clients, predicting that cablers will meet stronger resistance from telecom rivals as they try to win bigger accounts. Telecoms may become "more price competitive to hold onto the customers they have" or try to boost their "overall performance," Caulfield says.

  • Social video steps up its role in programming
    The new online series "Very VH1 with Kate Spencer" is part of a new wave of programming that is trying to completely integrate social media into its production and promotions. The VH1 series is filmed using webcams, with the host and four guests each in different locations. "Think of how stories were told before traditional media," said Dan Sacher, senior vice president of digital at VH1 and Logo. "You sat around a fire with a storyteller, and there was a give-and-take among all involved. What we're really tapping into here is the way storytelling was done years and years ago."
