Is Internet going be the sole carrier of TV Channels?
            


TThe Internet and television had been separate flows. With rise in Internet speed they are joining hands, the former becoming the preferred carrier of television.

Television and Internet had long been flowing as two distinct and separate streams.. A man would be on his Internet enabled computer for hours solving his work-related problems and as he finishes his job would switch over to his TV to enjoy episodes or movies or sports or update himself with news, weather or highlights of the business world.

But technology changes fast. From the dial-up connection age through stages the Internet entered the broadband age. Long wait for downloading was no more there. From children to the aged people everyone learnt how to go on Internet as they had learnt previously to operate TV through remote control switch. Of course TV too crossed so many stages. Once upon a time it could reach your home with the help of antenna. Now even cable and satellite distribution systems for TV-let alone the terrestrial one-appear to be getting ready to pack up their baggage. Recall how streaming video with the support of Internet had fascinated us as a newcomer about a decade back.

Now Internet is ready to take TV from house to house. It has already given a call to the latter to come out of the cable and satellite support age and hold the hand of Internet to start its new journey. Is it a new childhood for TV or should be taken as its defeat to Internet? Neither is true. Why do you not go deep into the matter?

Will you be able to view all TV programs of your interest? And more importantly would you be able to receive all channels of your choice? And the most important point will be perhaps pay more than you have to do now for TV viewing?

Yes, you can watch on Internet TV entertainment episodes, sports, movies, and you can keep yourself updated with news, weather reports and business world forecasts. The Internet service providers are adding new channels everyday to their package and therefore more and more TV channels will come within your grip. Rather you will be free to view the channels of your choice, no curtailment on cost consideration being there. The major difficulty of saving the big cats comes from the poachers and illegal traders of it's body parts. Although it can't be said that the administration is sleeping over the matter but the poachers have become better connected and better equipped.

You will have to pay only once to your Internet TV service provider and will not have to pay monthly charges. You need the software and can get that on payment of the membership fee only once. Of course, Internet connection you would need to experience the miracle of Internet TV that is also known as IPTV [Internet Protocol Television], TOD [Television on the desktop], TV over IP [TV over Internet Protocol] etc.

Some hurdles like the lack of streaming video service providers and adequate flow of set top boxes are of course there on its way. But these teething troubles of the newcomer are sure to be won over soon. None other than the Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates himself commented very recently that 'the Internet is set to revolutionize television within five years'. Are you surprised that you too had just started thinking like that?
