Video My Way
You have settled in for the evening, a bowl of popcorn and a tasty bevy at the ready, eagerly anticipating the reaction from friends and family members to sharing one of your favorite films via streaming Netflix or Pay-Per-View on your big screen tv.
Now we’re losing the momentum of the drama building on-screen, sadly replaced by our own form of personal family drama, playing out right before us. I don’t blame my brother, whose girlfriend’s “urgent call” was more of the “needy” variety, (just saying), but rather my ubiquitous cable provider, the one I refer to as Übermediamaster.
Most of us tend to be willing to pay big money each month to have content to entertain & inform us, readily available. My cable company continues to deliver their services along with a heaping side (should TD really be on a menu?) of technical difficulties, naturally occurring on a weekend. Of course, a technician is never available until the following week, arriving at my house within a 3-hr window of time, when I can’t leave work to meet him.
But are our only choices for content, between cable and even more expensive satellite providers? Not when you can opt for an appealing alternative with a content delivery model known as Over-the-Top Technology (OTT) service.
You are already using OTT, and the content from a third party, if you watch Netflix, NowTV, WhereverTV, Hulu, or myTV. Once regular TV content can be accessed purely online, instead of with a cable subscription, more people will opt for this streamlined, more economical approach that frees you from paying for channels and programming that you never watch.
