Default What Will Happen With Cable And Television In 2012?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.digitaltrends.com/home-theater/the-state-of-streaming-cable-and-television-what-can-we-expect-in-2012/' target='_blank'>http://www.digitaltrends.com/home-t...expect-in-2012/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"But change is going to come, and amid news that Google is interested in entering the cable TV business and continued rumors that Apple will be releasing its own branded television set, we also have to wonder what's going to happen with streaming services like Hulu and Netflix. TalkPoint CEO Nick Balletta says that the real battle to hedge is with cable companies."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1320500382.usr110171.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Molly McHugh over at the Digital Trends website has written a short piece about what we might see in 2012 with Internet streaming services, cable, and television. While streaming of content over the Internet and to your mobile or desktop device has been growing, cable and television are not sitting idly by. Changes in traditional content provision and consumption models have far-reaching implications and will play out over a multi-year period. So, in this slowly evolving industry, what movement might we see in 2012? One thing the article suggests is that connected TV's may hit their stride during the holiday shopping period next year.

IMHO the greatest thing that has happened to TV is the XFinity app on my iPad and Android Tablet. It now takes me only seconds to determine there is nothing worth watching, where I used to have to flip through 60+ channels one by one to find out the same thing. Better still I can do this without even turning the TV on, and see there is nothing worthwhile on for the next two hours as well.
