Hi Dane - It is two years later, is there any update on the timeline for Fusion TV?
At this point I think we need to consider it vapor ware.
The television marketplace has shifted, and our plans for IPTV are on hold at this time. The launch of HBONow and SlingTV, plus the availability of +$40 DBS service all make it a questionable strategy.
Instead, we selected DISH as a television solution partner, and now offer a bundle with our services. DISH is low cost, has simple pricing that day sent change for two full years, and their technology and content approaches are both innovative. The Hopper 3 records up to sixteen shows at a time, supports 4k UltraHD, and features like auto-hop and the sling based DISH anywhere features allow subscribers an amazing amount of flexibility about how they watch.
By "+$40 DBS service", I mean that with DISH direct broadcast satellite, we can deliver to most Sonic members a full lineup TV product for $49.99, minus a $10/mo discount on their Sonic service. While satellite can deliver 4k and HDTV and allow for recording sixteen shows at once, far fewer Sonic members have adequate performance to allow for recording even three HD streams (and their Internet would slow with every stream.) With broader availability, superior technology and reasonable pricing and policies, DISH is a better solution than we could deliver ourselves.
