    Watch TV online: Internet TV and The Freedom of Choice

    First a little bit of history:

    In the early days of the internet access was very slow and could not therefore properly transmit audio and video data. However, with the arrival of DSL, or broadband, it has now become possible to watch TV online.  Internet TV programming combines video, data and voice services. The data is transmitted through the broadband connection to the PC.

    Secondly, some basic vocabulary information:

    Streaming (a word you will come across frequently nowadays) means being able to watch live content or on-demand videos without downloading a copy onto your computer.

    As it is live content you cannot pause, back-up or skip through parts of the programme that do not interest you. Most major TV networks play live, streaming feeds of their programming on their official web sites.

    Thirdly, freedom of choice and location:

    Yes, the major benefit of watching TV online, or internet TV, is that you have access to a huge variety of channels and programmes, including speciality programmes that major TV networks consider too specialised to air.

    The variety of programmes and channels is not the only benefit; internet TV also means that you can watch TV online when you want, from wherever you are, as long as there is an internet connection. This includes watching TV on the move as it is possible to watch TV online via a mobile device such as an iphone or a netbook.

    Looking towards the future, we already know that with technological progress the whole experience of watching TV online will become more interactive. So in the same way people are now interacting more with radio programmes by sending in texts and emails, so will real time interaction become possible with the television.

    In summary watching TV online means you can watch what you want, when you want, from wherever you want.

    So when will you give yourself the freedom of choice and watch TV online?
