Yes, you heard this before. The Death of Cable TV. Yet, it hasn't happened. But now, so many disruptions are happening in the video space, cable tv is really stepping towards the cliff. Don't expect the cable industry to just give up.
This article takes a refreshing look at the cable debate. By listing many of Comcast and WOW's unscrupulous pricing practices like refusing to allow a la carte packages, the article exposes many of their weaknesses in the fight for TV dominance.
Television’s newcomers: Netflix, Apple, Google and Facebook
The major players in the new era of entertainment convergence are named and profiled in this essay. It would seem to this author, that it's too soon, in the timeline of media convergence, to call a winner.
If you had asked me four years ago, I may well have agreed with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas's statements last week regarding the eventual 'implosion' of the film industry.
This well-researched piece presents plenty of evidence to rebuke the claims made by many that: the film industry will die out in the wake of web based entertainment. The article points out that: since the dawn of cinema, there have been many box office failures as well as films that just didn't earn as much as was projected and the movie business is still kicking. Studios, instead of complaining, could adjust their strategies in the future.
While 'television' might die as a word meaning one specific thing, the companies who have always been in the television business will continue to thrive for decades, if not forever.
This article is a brief but substantive rubuttal to Blodget's handful of articles about how internet based TV options are slowly but surely ensuring cable TV's demise. The piece contains various examples to the contrary. In particular, the list of new strategies and techniques employed by cable companies and TV networks to combat the rising prominance of web based services and piracy.
This humble scoopit! seeks to analyze the data, both supporting and denying the death of traditional media like movies and cable TV in the wake of streaming web based content provided by Netflix and Roku.
When predicting a victor in the battle of streaming TV and movies vs. traditional cable and movie tticket sales, one must ultimately look to the consumers. As the argument is one of economics, consumers are the most important factor in choosing a side. The future of cable TV and movies is impossible to predict. New legislation limiting the price gouging practices of cable companies will make the next few years of the battle interesting enough. These factors combined with new methods of creating and distributing new TV content (Netflix, Roku) will take a few more years to accurately surmise their prominance.
Blodget's predictions, while bleak, are supported by dire figures representing the shift in consumer trends towards streaming media, which allows them to view the product at any time. This trend toward convenience and price point has firmly established streaming media as a serious competitor to cable TV and movies.
The film industry with its ticket, dvd, and bluray sales has weathered more storms than most in its 100 plus years. Many sources point to the perceived longterm failure of recent blockbusters like Iron Man 3 as a death knell for the industry but, as telling as they may seem, the movies as a whole have survived numerous slumps, flops, and ticket price increases.
After analysis of the data provided by naysayers and supporters alike it is clear it is too soon to start a death pool.
Not long ago, TV reception depended on how well your rooftop antenna picked up the signal. But now cables and satellites have commandeered our screens. Today, about 87% of U.S.
While this piece doesn't provide any comrehensive data about the internet vs. cable TV and movies' debate, it does provide a list of ways consumers can avoid the sting of cable TV price gougeing. I felt it was relevant to the topic because its very publication means that number ofconsumers who don't like the cost of cable is large enough to warrant an advice article. These consumers will play an important role in the coming years in which traditional media will look for new ways to thrive. Cable companies will have to think of new ways to attract these TV refugees.
This article serves as an introduction to the many ways new technology can and will affect our collective TV watching habits. Almost all newer TV's have some online component which is relevant to the idea that internet based entertainment options are replacing traditional cable TV options.
