Netflix Most Popular Online Tv Service But Cable Still King

visit site But if the TV landscape was considered "vast" back then, think just how vast it is today. There are channels we've never heard of -- channels we don't even know we have -- channels that "stream" instead of "air." And yet, far from becoming a vaster wasteland, some say the "boob tube" has never been better. "It's opened up a lot of opportunity, creatively, and people are pushing the envelope in ways that they hadn't before," said actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, of HBO's "Veep."

Bye-bye, MSN TV: Microsoft finally shuts down online TV pioneer

Subscribe to WebTV (later called MSN TV) started in 1996 with the goal to bring new people online and to give those already online an easy, hassle-free means of accessing the internet from the comfort of their homes. Later, MSN TV 2 was released with vastly greater power and features. Since then, the web has continued to evolve at a breathtaking pace, and there are many new ways to access the internet. Accordingly, we have made the difficult decision to end the MSN TV service WebTV was founded in 1995 by Steve Perlman, who later went on to found the cloud gaming service Onlive . The company launched its service in 1996, offering consumers a dedicated set-top box that connected their TV screen via dial-up to the internet. In 1997, the startup was bought by Microsoft for $425 million, and the service was eventually rebranded as MSN TV in 2001. MSN TV received a refresh and slightly updated hardware with the roll-out of MSN TV 2 in 2004, offering subscribers access to email, messaging, a simple web browser and some online video content through their TV. <br>Source:

Even though these numbers are relatively small for these cable companies, they might worsen in the review future. But subscription services should benefit from these cable names as many consumers choose multiple online video offerings instead of picking just one. In addition, numerous consumer surveys have shown that Netflix subscribers are more likely to cut or not possess pay-TV subscriptions at all. Becoming major entertainment outlets Netflix will likely build on its top dog status, and continue to benefit from TV consumption habits. Nowadays, even colleges are cutting the cord because of lack of usage by the youth. Netflix now accounts for more than 30% of downstream Internet traffic in peak periods in the U.S., and Hulu and Amazon are increasingly gaining traction as well, according to Sandvine. As these firms get incremental consumer mindshare, the top-line of these firms should see healthy growth for years, and their stocks should follow suit. More compelling ideas from Motley Fool The best investing approach is to choose great companies and stick with them for the long term. <br>Source:
