INTX delivers both good and bad news for the pay-TV industry

INTX audienceFrom sparse attendance and widely spaced booths to a vague keynote from FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, last week's INTX tradeshow – rebranded from its old moniker, The Cable Show -- seemed to have little going for it. But that wasn't apparent in the tone of the NCTA's leadership, particularly Michael Powell, who delivered a fiery rebuttal to proposed FCC rulemaking that many in the industry feel will gut cable operators.

Still, INTX heralded a number of potentially good things for the pay-TV world, including new technology on display such as virtual reality. Fierce Editors Daniel Frankel, Mike Dano and Ben Munson detailed the best and worst of INTX in this take on the show.
