It is the future, but the future is farther away than these guys think. They still need to expand past the digital elite. And they have to solve the sports issue. Eventually it’ll happen, but we’re talking at least another decade, maybe even 2.
I predict many more stations on the internet TV. This is both good and bad. There will be Tea Party TV with Conservative programming, Red TV with Communist Propaganda, the Black Power TV and the KKK Network with there flagship show “The White Power Hour”—heck, even Glen Beck is setting up an internet network. Their will be a Mormon Station, a Gay channel, an old TV show channel—westerns and war movies—all sorts of things. One will just show movies made by people rather than studios. I see a comeback of the 15 minute TV show and the 1/2 hour show. Six years down the pike all we know will be changed when it comes to entertainment.
A computer such as a Mac Mini like I use bring a whole lot of TV to my Big screen. I am sure there are several cheap versions of small PC that can do the same thing. I have ROKU and Apple TV and a Smart TV, they all pale in comparison to my Mini.
