I like the idea of TV over the internet. I think it gives consumers more choices by the advent of more competition, However, there is a move in the US by cable and satellite providers to stop this kind of access. Their reasoning, why should these networks offer programming on the net for free when they have to pay to carry their content. So in response, they are trying to implement data caps to stiffle this growth of online video streaming services. With these caps in place, it would hurt not only online video services but also gaming and other software that depended on updates through the net, ie Windows or your security software. I would suggest US citizens be aware of what is happening in their respective states. In most situations, cable or satellite companies have a monopoly in some cities. They can charge whatever they want and put off doing upgrades to their system for longer periods of time.
This is how really pathetic our system is.Talking about really falling behind.
Now this is a few years old but we haven’t really marched up the ladder much since then. I still think the US is ranked 7th if I remember correctly.
It is enough to make you sick.
