Is Internet TV Coming of Age?
With video blogging becoming all the more popular and everyday users taking video production into their own hands, Internet TV is becoming all too much a reality. Just take a look at vast amount of content one can find via the Internet. You can watch bands of every genre, live sports events from cycling, surfing, sailing, football, and soccer to name a few, news from around the world, local events, and homemade videos. You have 10's of countries and languages to choose from.
An interesting aspect is that media giants aren't driving the Internet TV wave, but rather individuals from around the world. People are picking up the camera and forming small companies and finding new careers recording sports, bands, local events, etc. and offering the content up via the Internet. How long will it take until the media giants join the bandwagon?
Not all companies are taking a passive approach to Internet TV. Google and Yahoo are both beefing up there video search capability. America Online demonstrated the capabilities of Internet TV with their Live 8 broadcast. During that event, blogs across the Internet proclaimed that Internet TV left traditional TV in the dust. As one reporter wrote, "To put it bluntly, MTV sank, and AOL soared." While MTV is far from sinking, it strikes a point that Internet TV is quickly advancing towards mainstream.
