How to get TV through the internet - CNN.com

How to get TV through the internet - CNN.com | How to Watch TV Online | Scoop.it
Blogger Jonathan Strickland cut ties with his cable company a year ago, yet he continues to watch all his favorite TV shows. He has saved nearly $700 over the last year and, most importantly, he tasted the thrill of telling his cable provider to shove it.
Philip Sumpter's insight:

You either heard the negative stories or witnessed Cable television's lousy customer service, bundled packages that force you to pay for content you don't want to see (many channels available online for free). And if that wasn't enough, forces you to pay increasingly high subscription fees, fees you can't make sense out of, and the list goes on. 

 

So what are TV viewers doing today after saying no to Cable TV? Read the article to hear what one guy did when cutting the cord and heading online to watch his favorite channels and TV shows. No longer is he paying the high cost which translates to savings and he only pays for the content that interest him.

FCC Chairman Wheeler hints at shift in net neutrality rules

FCC Chairman Wheeler hints at shift in net neutrality rules | How to Watch TV Online | Scoop.it
The nation's top telecom regulator strongly hinted that he plans to propose more rigorous regulations on Internet service providers — setting up a potentially bitter clash with powerful cable television operators and others that offer Internet access.
Philip Sumpter's insight:

Mark your calendars... FCC set to vote Feb 26, 2015 on Net Neutrality which will include a shift to Title II (meaning major change in how FCC regulates broadband companies (ISP) that would extend the regulator's power). Many oppose the FCC Net Neutrality regulation including major Internet service providers, President Obama and Republicans (House of Representatives) as well as millions of Internet users in the USA.

 

FCC chairman Tom Wheeler refers to the success of the wireless model that's currently regulated under the same Title II rules but many feel the main issue is how to ensure consumers and innovators will continue to have open access to networks.

 

Read more and learn how this vote in February could dramatically change the Internet into an utility bill, which should be a right granted to Americans in our Constitution without usage charges and Internet regulations.

The FCC gets to work on letting internet TV compete with cable

The FCC gets to work on letting internet TV compete with cable | How to Watch TV Online | Scoop.it
internet providers aren't classified as a "multichannel video programminng distributor"
Philip Sumpter's insight:

FCC getting a little closer to allow internet providers (not ISPs but more like Aereo and other Internet TV companies) to be classified as a multichannel video programming distributor. If this bills gets approved in Congress, that opens the playing field where cable and satellite will have more competition which will benefit TV viewers and consumers alike (both in savings and more choices in TV content).

Aereo May Be Dead, But Internet TV Will Live On | WIRED

Aereo May Be Dead, But Internet TV Will Live On | WIRED | How to Watch TV Online | Scoop.it
It's a sad day for Aereo and all those who believed in it. The startup, which allowed people to stream live broadcast television to their computers and mobile devices, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, just months after shutting down operations.
Philip Sumpter's insight:

Certainly a sad day for Aereo as well as TV viewers and cord cutters alike who thought they were getting an alternative to cable and satellite TV. Aereo filed for charter 11 bankruptcy after losing in court to big broadcasting companies. Court costs including other costs continued to pile up when trying to help TV consumers save cost and bring television to the 21st century. By using a special TV antenna that came with a price. Aereo would have help facilitate a way for TV viewers/consumers to watch favorite programs for free that continues to be included in paid TV bundles with an increasingly high monthly charge.

 

Still, Internet TV remains... More and more, TV viewers, cord cutters and dish ditchers will continue to explore Internet TV to save cost and view content they want to watch. But hold on there! The FCC is trying to do away with Net Neutrality, whereas the Internet will be treated like a utility so that ISP (Internet Service Providers) can charge Internet users a fee for usage.

 

It's time to get on board and fight to protect Net Neutrality!

Obama takes on ISPs: 'No higher calling' than protecting an open Internet

Obama takes on ISPs: 'No higher calling' than protecting an open Internet | How to Watch TV Online | Scoop.it
President Barack Obama released a hardline plan to protect the Internet and net neutrality, including a controversial proposal.
Philip Sumpter's insight:

Even the president of the United States is opposed to reclassifying Internet Service providers (ISPs) as utilities, which works against Net Neutrality. Imagine incurring higher cost when the Internet becomes an utility bill and limits Internet users access to the Internet when they can't afford it. Open Internet advocates have been longing for reclassification which is against Net Neutrality. It's time for everyone to get on board and fight to keep the Internet neutral.

The FCC is about to light a fire under the television industry's ass

The FCC is about to light a fire under the television industry's ass | How to Watch TV Online | Scoop.it
Cable companies have enjoyed a regulatory buffer from Internet competitors when it comes to television. Those days may be numbered.
Philip Sumpter's insight:

FCC proposal have been in the works that could give cable and satellite companies competition and customers winners in what continues to be a closed market where no outside company can become MVPD providers.

If the FCC proposal passes, Internet-based companies such as Aereo and Filmon TV could become heavy players and compete with cable and satellite.

It's certainly about time for an open market as more and more TV viewers continue to head online to watch favorite live and on-demand TV programs they want to see, without the high cost and being forced to pay for channels/programs they don't want.

Stay tune and read the article if interested in knowing what the FCC is doing to help TV consumers more. Questions is... Will this mean more savings for TV viewers when competition increases? Only time will tell if this proposal becomes law.

 

Web TV viewers will no longer look over their shoulders when using 3rd party Internet companies that become MVPD providers.

FilmOn has asked US telecoms and broadcast regulator the FCC for a licence to operate in the same way as a cable TV company.
Philip Sumpter's insight:

Aeros isn't the only web-based company trying to compete with satellite and cable. Like Aeros, FilmOn is a video streaming service seeking MVPRD (multichannel video programming distribution) status that cable/satellite already have and holds copyrights to the content they present to customers. If the FCC proposal is accepted and becomes law, companies like Filom will have the same rights and can retransmit local US TV feeds across the Internet for a fee.

Protesters Rally for Net Neutrality in More than 20 U.S. Cities | How to Watch TV Online | Scoop.it
People in more than 20 U.S. cities protested on Thursday in response to reports that the FCC is leaning toward a hybrid plan to address net neutrality
Philip Sumpter's insight:

If you do anything at all over the Internet, you had better pay strict attention to Net Neutrality and what the FCC is trying to do.

 

The FCC continues to forge ahead in giving Internet Service Providers (ISP) the power to give certain online companies faster service than others.

 

If you enjoy having Net Neutrality as we all do, it's now time to jump on board with other protesters across nation that have been fighting to keep Net Neutrality fully in tact. If the FCC has it's way and congress passes the bill, this could have a grave affect on who gets access to certain websites and content online, which could mean Internet users paying more to these ISP gatekeepers and/or Internet companies to continue getting access to certain websites including sites like Netflix.

 

It's time to get serious!
