Fundamental changes have taken place in the music business. Now it came to television.
With the ability to connect the TV directly to the Internet more and more users ignore pay-TV operators. According to studies, over the past three years, about 3 million people in developed countries have disconnected from traditional TV service operators, preferring internet services.
Format Smart-TV when the TV can connect directly to the Internet, stimulate the development of Internet TV. After three years, half of all TV entered the market will be able to connect to the Internet. TV content producers have already begun to directly connect to the Internet, creating a special application that is easy to access TV programs from the TV.
In addition to traditional programs there are also new types of television programs, such as video tutorials on how to cook a duck or to repurchase cars, video tours of city attractions. Moreover, the interactivity, which involves the Internet, allows the viewer to ask questions and share their views online.
It turns out that the proper rate of development of high-speed internet can start reducing paid-TV market, which is still showing strong growth.
