No kidding, the platform isn't terribly popular in the US, but the tethering screams on 4GLTE. Sunday Ticket streams beautifully. I was kind of surprised by that. Got through half of one game on a...

I don't think ads have ever been skippable on live streams. This is more about providing live-streaming of local stations than it is on-demand, which has always contained some advertising.

Actually, my employer had been working on this since before Aereo. Affiliates have wanted to go the streaming route for some time. CBS was tasked with coming up with a system that would...

Yeah, I don't think CBS' move was to attract cord cutters, per se. The author seems to forget network programming is already available without a cable subscription.

Kilo = 1000 Should have learned that one in grade school ;)

So 1,000 kilowatts means a thousand watts multiplied by a thousand = 1 million watts. (add three zeroes to the 1000. figure)
