TV on the Internet – What Is It?

TV on the Internet – What Is It?

Online technology has changed the way we view TV. It’s not about sitting down on the couch with a remote control anymore—it’s about viewing streamed TV on the internet.

It does seem that the way we view television programs has evolved over time. It wasn’t long ago that we were listening to radio broadcasts as our main form of communication and entertainment (of course that was before my time), but it was very recent in regards to history; its competition was the newspaper. And then there was the development of the television; and of course the television challenged the radio. Soon after the development of television, the TV itself has evolved giving you faster and better service—going from cable to satellite viewing.

What is Online TV?

Now since the revolution of the World Wide Web up until this decade, comes stream TV shows otherwise known as Internet television. Once again there is another challenge. Now the challenge is between Internet TV and classic television. Are we going through another revolution? What is TV on the Internet?

It is simply a way to watch television on the Internet by either downloading or streaming video. Even though online TV is new—it still has gone through a period of evolution (or you may can call it—the discovery period) I’ll let you be the judge.

Online TV Services

You may have not thought of You Tube as being online TV—but in a way it is. However, because many networks have prohibited many sites from showing their programming because of copyright laws, You Tube has minimized viewing times to 10 minutes an episode.

When downloading online TV shows, you are allowed to keep the video file on your computer. Many major television networks have filed lawsuits against these services that distribute content; however, many networks and studios have worked around these issues.

Unlike regular television, TV on the Internet is able to give you basically anything you’re looking for in TV as well as TV shows that have been long off the air and canceled. There is no need to utilize a VCR or DVR to record episodes, as they are all ready to either be downloaded or viewed online whenever you are ready.

As time goes on—we will find ourselves looking back at this and remembering how online TV started and if history repeats itself in regards to technology, the more we improve the internet, the more options we will have when it comes to TV on the Internet.
