Which would be a good thing given his Internet service provider audience. Cuban said cable and satellite networks have become superior platforms for building interactive services, not
the open, stretched-for-bandwidth mess the Web has become.
Enclosed environments, such as the networks run by Verizon Communications and Comcast, allow higher-bandwidth experiences capable of producing the kind of HD-quality programming you can see on your television sets. Developers will bring their applications to these networks instead of Web video providers, like Joost and Veoh, which operate on a cluttered network forced to handle millions of requests for different types of information. Cuban said developers creating office applications would be better served on these networks, too, because users would have faster responses and better experiences.
