Not yet, anyway. More than half of Americans now stream movies or television programs using the Internet, according to various surveys. The vast majority of American households subscribe to cable or satellite services which offer "bundles" of dozens or hundreds of channels in addition to free over-the-air broadcasts. But increasingly consumers are using Internet TV services, both free and paid, viewing on a computer or delivered to a large-screen television display.

Live programming -- the missing element from most streaming services -- is now available from the recently announced Sony's PlayStation Vue and Dish Network's Sling TV.

But what has driven this? Arguably it’s a result of what TV audiences have wanted, and these needs fall broadly into two categories, improving the volume and quality of programmes (colour TV, more channels, digital TV, HD); and making it easier for the viewer to find and watch those programmes (the remote control, VCR, EPGs, PVR, VOD, multiscreen). To help ensure this innovation continues, we in the industry need to think about what we want to experience when we go home each evening.

So what can you expect? Android-powered TV sets, app connected appliances, and drones are just a few product categories you can expect to see grow at this year’s show. The growth of Android TV was a big part of TP Vision’s presentation at the event with the company noting that its Philips branded Android TV sets have helped boost use of internet connected services on its smart TVs—60% for its previous line of smart TVs up to 90 percent on Android TVs.

That has helped the company’s decision to invest more in the platform and plans to launch more TV sets powered by Android in the second half of the year in time for IFA in September.

Hulu Comes to Cable TV, Which Is Fine With Cable TV

That’s interesting. And it’s been a long time coming. But don’t mistake this as any sign of significant change in the TV Industrial Complex: It’s just a matter of a TV distributor and the TV networks adding another revenue stream, without shaking up their core business. The press release Hulu and Cablevision put out is frustratingly short on actual details, like the actual price Cablevision will charge or when it will sell it. But the two companies did confirm that the service will be the equivalent of Hulu Plus — the one Hulu already sells for $8 a month. Nouvelle App Guide TV : TVNOW.
