Internet TV The Next Big Thing

Sep 8, 2008
Watch out for the next big thing in media - Internet Television. It has the potential to shake the entire TV industry to its root, bringing in a huge potential to explore new avenues and opportunities, away from the traditional established business models regarding television.

This emerging and exciting new platform is being explored by many people worldwide and they are looking that the enormous impact that streaming TV and Video On Demand (VOD) on channel and content owners, online platform providers, Pay TV content aggregators, platform operators and consumers. Not to be confused with IPTV or Internet Protocol Television, which uses IP as its transmission medium and delivers video to private networks that have quality of service and guaranteed user experience, Internet TV delivers content off open, unmanaged internet and is a best effort service.

Video packets have to compete with other IP packets all over the Internet on an equal footing. The lack of bandwidth in private homes has made the potential of Internet TV remain unexplored till the recent past, and low bandwidth results in very bad video quality. Now, there is much higher bandwidth available to private residences at much cheaper prices and some amazing great quality video content has come up on Internet TV. With these improvements, the full and enormous potential of Internet TV can finally be tapped.

Popular TV series such as "Desperate Housewives" and "Lost" are now available on iTunes by Apple and is a positive sign lending support to the fact that the big players on the content market want to tap the potential of source-to-public Internet distribution. It is obvious that Pay TV operators no longer have the monopoly on the distribution of content. Some content owners want to meet popular consumer demand for certain recorded content that is to be made available to them directly and instantaneously to their Personal Computers and portable players. To bolster this movement, there is a lot of trust on Digital Rights Management Systems in order to prevent illegal content copying or distribution of online video content.
File downloads cost money sometimes, due to bandwidth constraints, but streaming doesn't, mostly because of its unreliable quality. Video file downloading now is much faster and user friendly as there has been a drastic growth in last mile bandwidth. Streaming video is still not worth paying for but seeing as how great things are predicted for Internet TV; the time seems imminent and inevitable. As of now, downloading seems to be good enough in order to build a huge mass market service.

Consumers have a lot of freedom now in terms of how they use their video files and consequently the popularity of video downloading has skyrocketed. People no longer watch Internet TV just on their PCs. It is now available in their television and portable media players. Hence, content is originating on the Internet, and Internet TV is spreading over to where the term "Internet TV" would be used to define any video on many devices that was originally downloaded off the Internet.
