This jaw dropping number clearly depicts the demand and future of online steaming. The interesting part, This number is as high as 43% jump than previous year. Real big one!.
So, where are we heading? Could you imagine why this leap curve?

Prime entertainment makers like Sony, Samsung, LG and Sharp companies still keep an eye on innovative TV concepts and launch technologies like LED, 3D, OLED, and Smart TV at least twice a year, by mostly targeting online audience. These new epoch concepts and breeds are so powerful, Gorgeous design, Pencil thin depth, Weightless and so on.
Technically so cool and of course they are very expensive! So, If you are an avid fan of online, How would you like to compare the ease of Online steaming with the experience of TV? Are we ready to quit TV channels down the road?
I strongly agree about the TV Screen size, crystal clear retina display and other key features are very demanding when we watch our favorite channels on it. It could be Big bang Theory, NFL, NBA, Friends, CNN, Weather, Olivia, Food Network or Avatar. It always fascinates and Instantly pull you back on couch. But, If you could estimate the hours as how much you enjoyed on TV programs by a month, I am sure the number would be pretty less when compare online.
At online, every moment is getting bigger. Either are you a avid movie fan or sports fanatic ,no matter and there are infinite options available. Live news channels, blogs, Netflix, Hulu, Blockbuster, Webcast streaming, Millions of YouTube clips and other Social Network based broadcasts are already so popular and this community is keep growing. Its eternal.
Also, New age online streaming players, like Sony net stream players, Google TV, Western digital, Roku and cloud based products arrival brings new channel watch experience to spectators and importantly no monthly contract and recurring fee headaches.
