Will Dotcom extinguish Telecom's spark before they even get started?

show-me-tv-logoThe tip line has provided some interesting information recently about some issues Telecom/Spark’s new streaming content service ShowMeTV is facing in order to secure content.  Throng understands that many of the US studios that Telecom are working on deals with are unhappy about the telco’s connection with Kim Dotcom.

Telecom is currently proving hosting services for Kim Dotcom which we understand has resulted in the unhappy studios ratcheting up the prices well in excess of what might be the norm.

Sourcing content for ShowMeTV is going to be difficult enough due to the existing deals already in place but being a service provider to the entertainment industry’s public enemy #1 certainly appears to not be helping things.
