The Joys of Online TV And Internet TV

Sep 12, 2008
Watching online TV and Internet TV might sound like sci-fi to most people over the age of 40, but this is actually a case of the future catching up with us. What's more, people have embraced this phenomenon widely and whole-heartedly. As a result, online television has spurned a whole new society with its own setoff rules, dos and don'ts, etc.

Unique Content

The 40+ may not be very comfortable with this idea, but they are bound to accept it one day or another. Web television now comes with its own unique content that is exclusively designed for broadcast over the Internet. These soaps, talk shows and news segments are not viewable elsewhere. For example, if you like a particular episode of a web show then it is quite unlikely that you can tune your regular TV into it or hope to catch the next episode on your local cable.

Interactive Ads

Then the oldies now need to come to terms with yet another type of Internet TV content -interactive ads. While they enjoyed the interactive elements of reality shows on regular offline television, it might take some doing before they accept ads that are also interactive in nature.

Video on Demand or VOD

Another new concept that seems to have been quite well accepted is Video on Demand or better known as VOD (rhymes with "god"). For a fee or for free viewers can download or watch streaming videos online depending on bandwidth.

Sick and tired of regular television with its prime time shows, regular broadcasts, ads that you know backwards and ho-hum content? If your old idiot box with its tired soaps makes you want to scream, consider Internet TV. If you watch television on the Web you have a different experience.

For one, you catch the new web friendly content on your regular TV if a PC strains your eye or in the unlikely event that you don't posses a computer. Only you need to hook up the television set to the Internet via a PC or to a set top box. If all this is too hi-tech for you, ask a young neighbor or tech-savvy friend to pitch in. The best part of Web TV, you will soon realize, is that you can watch it on the go, hook up your mobile and experience true wireless connectivity. Watch your favorite soaps or the season finale on your mobile or PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) while you commute to work or if you are getting bored at a party!

If regular soaps make you nod off to sleep, then Internet TV offers some joy. You have what is known as Video on Demand or VOD. Here, you can select your favorite movies or see funny home movies of complete strangers as and when you want it. Therefore, you have access to a wealth of resources from art movies made on shoe string budgets to million dollar glitzy movies on your very own Internet TV.
