Online Networks Take a Turn for the Better

Justin TV OnlineTV Online Networks

Recently, Sony announced that they are developing their own TV online solution.  This new competition will change the way that online television and cable TV are viewed throughout the world.  Currently, the top competitors to this new endeavor are Britain’s SKY TV, Hulu Plus and Netflix.  There are also other companies that are planning to take a large chunk out of the market from the cable TV providers that have for so long kept a tight grip on the market.  Dish networks may also suffer or have to adapt to the changing trend of television programs being watched through services like TVIP and IPTV.

TV Programs

TV programs and content writing are even changing to meet the faster production schedules that are now required to keep the masses satisfied.  Many online TV programs are now going to a 7 minute format as opposed to the usual 22 minute comedies and 45 minute dramas.

Online TV Hosting

Another trend is where developers create a website that specifically hosts a television program.  Thus, the website itself is the television channel.  This is often accomplished with managed hosting services that support the creative team.
