The Internet has quickly become a conglomerate of many mediums that used to be quite distant. News, games, communication, research - all wrapped up into one. Slowly, other media was introduced as well, such as music and telephone communication. Over the last few years, TV over the Internet has become big as well. Downloadable shows, video streams and more. In fact, according to a recent research study, nearly half of Europe is watching TV via the Internet in one fashion or another. Motorola, who sponsored the study, has released a press release announcing just such, which they of course have much to gain from.
Some of what they state is quite interesting, such as their claim that nearly half of Europeans will be making video calls within the next 5 years. You can read the full press release in the comments section.
