Mark Cuban likes Yahoo + Comcast Online (because he loves his HDNet)

Mark Cuban who, with his HDNet venture, has a personal interest in high quality streaming video (read, he is jealous of doesn’t love YouTube) is praising Yahoo and Comcast’s little heralded deal to sell video ads on the Comcast online network. He is calling it the “deal of the year.”

Cuban’s obsession with high bit streams continues:

In short, Yahoo and Comcast can start working together to develop video content and ad platforms that Google can’t touch. Any video that is streamed from can be streamed at bit rates that match the user’s throughput, including commercials. If Comcast can deliver on demand video at full DVD quality to PCs, it can deliver commercials at that quality. All without ever touching the internet

He closes with:

Of course, it still doesnt create enough bandwidth for the delivery of HDTV over the net, nor does it fix Comcast’s problem of not offering HDNet and HDNet Movies to its customers, but thats a topic for another blog.

I’ve always enjoyed BlogMaverick, but it seems that more and more of his posts are simply posted for the purpose of promoting market conditions and legal environments that will benefit HDNet. Nothing wrong with that. He’s just become a bit more obvious.
