From White Papers to cutting edge Research to our recommendations on books to make you think, videos to encourage your creativity and blogs to keep you current.

And, we want this to be a two-way street. When you see a great resource that would be a benefit to the DMO collective, shoot it our way and we'll post it up for your peers. 


Cutting the Cord

TVretro200With our move to the country, we decided to cut the cord. We've ended our subscription to cable TV.

And, we have entered a world we didn't know existed. A world of collusion, where scoring content from a network often requires a cable subscription.

Which was the situation this evening as I sat down to watch the kick-off of the NFL Season with the Hall of Fame Game.

Nyet. The NBC Sports app required a link to my cable provider (I no longer have one). Hulu was also a no go because I apparently didn't have the right plan.

I chuckled and put down the remote.

If I'm willing to watch your content with your commercials...and you block me because I'm not part of your incestuous cabal?

I guess I'll watch the highlights tomorrow on my phone.

Without all those commercials that are so precious to your business plan.

Y'all might want to buy a clue.
