reports that this group largely opts for Internet streaming of TV shows and movies, either on their computers or through mobile devices such as cell phones or tablets. Subscriptions to online sites like Hulu, Netflix and Amazon are climbing, eliminating the need for traditional viewing habits that require the viewer to follow network schedules and sit through commercials.

Hah! That's good. clap.gif

The Finnish News Agency (YLE) puts all their news broadcasts online after they've been aired on TV. As they should. We pay a media tax for their 'services' so we should have access even without TV. Ok, we still don't watch it but it's the principal...

At least they are embracing the change. Failure in that department will be the downfall of several industries unless they abandon the current course. coffeetime.gif

The problem is not the medium, so making content available on different platforms won't really help when it's the content itself that people don't want. People just got tired of their bullshit.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
