Streaming gradually replacing TV ...But streaming is how TV works! The transmission format used in in today's digital television is called MPEG transport stream."TV" is the name of a medium. "Streaming" basically just means continuous flow of data (as opposed to storing or caching it, etc).Saying that "streaming replaces TV" is a ludicrous notion. TV (analog or digital) has always been a streaming medium.What the author of the graph is trying to say is that syndicated broadcasting is being replaced by television-on-demand, or video-on-demand.
Well, it looks like computing on portable devices is out, as is streaming TV...
Saying that "streaming replaces TV" is a ludicrous notion.Eolake has never done that before, right?
"What the author of the graph is trying to say is that syndicated broadcasting is being replaced by television-on-demand, or video-on-demand."Good point. Though it seems he is not including video on demand on the TV services, but only on the Internet. Which makes it more relevant I think, since this is the old-style businesses losing customers to newer ones. TV ads revenues are not having a good time. Of course it'll never happen 100% percent, if for no other reason then because some of the old businesses are smart enough to buy into the new ways of business. If they can.
