Top Reasons Why Internet TV Is Taking Control Over Cable

Not Long time ago the music industry got a strike to the head by the ever growing internet, and these days the newspaper industry is going through a similar phase
And now the cable companies have been receiving a little tightness inside the pants which might be checking out frequent bathroom visits.

In the NY Times article there were talk of the rising anti-cable group, viewers seems to be cancelling cable subscriptions and using the net instead.

The reasons? Free is usually a good start, and choice is another. Hulu as an example is already, from a early age, the next largest provider of video content on line, they provide a huge choice all (currently) for free.

Even when the Rumors of the membership service being rolled out for premium content, it still somewhat looks better (and inexpensive) than cable.

Rumors may also be abound that YouTube is engaging in the cable market and is actually researching different economical choices.

Choices include a variety of subscription models and a plan modeled after iTunes charging a charge per episode, type of a leasing business.

Google’s also wanting to get to qualify for the act, wanting to provide a streaming option.

However the cable companies are needs to fight back. Comcast have renamed the beta ‘TV Everywhere’ as Fancast Xfinity TV,

a catch up tv on-demand provider which includes around 2000 hours of content. The content has provided by 30 cable networks, and includes full episodes smashing tv shows and movies.

They have modelled it around iTunes along with a limited variety of authorized computers to view the services on.

Presently, you have to be a customer of each Comcast’s cable and internet service to have access the service plan.

There’s no extra charge in the service. Comcast hopes to flourish Xfinity to mobile devices, but it’s unlikely that may be held any time soon.

This can be a smart move by cable, however still doesn’t deal with the problem of high subscription fees. The reason folks are preferring to online tv is all the way down to costs.

If we are able to see a full episode of the show on Hulu absolutely free, why pay huge fees to Comcast and other cable companies. Even if Hulu and YouTube to start to charge,

you can bet the cost will probably be low knowing that cable will continue to lose subscribers in a massive rate.

It is probably that cable must experience the same painful lessons from the music industry. CDs can be bought now at a lower price than 10 years ago.

The lesson of iTunes — Market it cheap and sell big is mostly route that cable grudgingly is obliged to follow.
