No TV for eBay


After a solid month of market testing, with mammoth companies like Home Depot sitting in the wings cheering eBay on, the Cable Broadcasting Bureau has chosen not to invite eBay to play. Word on the street has it that eBay's system was described as "flawed" and not ready for prime time.

The announcement of the impending collapse of what eBay had placed their hopes on as their TV debut came only days after Google and EchoStar announced a deal in which Google will bring an automated system for buying, selling and measuring effectiveness of TV time on 125 channels on Dish Network.  Google wins again.
