  1. It doesn't take a media mogul to see there's a radical influx in online video viewership. Web-goers are increasingly reliant on sites like Hulu for TV shows and other premium content, while YouTube is serving upwards of two billion videos a day – most of which are user-created.

    only 77% not 100%. how can u not watch video. the number of websites with video adverts is so annoying! Or maybe the other 23% don't have flash or a webbrowser with HTML5 support.... No thats not possible...

    Yeah well, when we get too lazy to pop down to Redbox for a hit movie, we're in deep s***. Think how obese the cross section of our population will be when we don't even get that minuscule amount of physical activity. I suppose you could still watch your movies on the airplane, after you've paid for two seats, that is.
  4. I'm not surprised, I'm one those people that watch my tv shows and movies online. Mainly because I don't want to pay for cable packages (that cost too much) that include a whole bunch of other crap that I don't watch, so I go online to watch what I want. The day that cable let's it's users select what they want will be the day I go back to cable TV otherwise I'm happy downloading or streaming the shows I only want to watch.

    I quite like Sky Offerings here in the UK. You can get many Sky channels and on demand content for £15 a month instead of the £55+ if you have Sky box and the Sat Dish. Shame no HD yet. However Sky are going to trial HD on there Own ISP and give to all later on, that be great.
