The early shift

Om (along with his new team of X-Bloggers) has the goods on an interesting development from Sightspeed, adding place-shifting to its voice/video client. [Also check out Aswath's interesting comments here.] The UK angle to this is that one of Sightspeed's deployments is with legacy Telewest customers, which is made even more intriguing by the fact that former Telewest CEO Eric Tveter is Sightspeed's chairman. I wonder if the Sightspeed relationship will fall by the wayside in the merged NTL-Telewest or if it is to be part of some bigger future push into place-shifting. The latent potential of NTL-Telewest's asset base in this area could be pretty huge, particularly with mobile now in the mix.
