Canoe Ventures content is coming — not so — soon

Canoe Ventures has been around since 2008, and "the future of television" doesn't seem much closer to fruition. As David Verklin, CEO of Canoe Ventures, said Friday at the paidContent 2010 conference at the Times Center in New York:

"I think speed and cable are not often words you hear in the same sentence."

Due to the stranglehold that the cable companies have over their business model, they have a bit more wiggle room when it comes to delivering an online transition than many entrenched businesses. But there's no guarantee that this cable company consortium will succeed in its efforts to bring cable content online. And that is a fact of which Canoe Ventures is all too aware.
