This Connected Vision comes from California. Hollywood is evidently capable of creating outstanding video programming, notably in episodic drama of incredible quality, but the interruptive way in which it is delivered through traditional television channels renders it almost unwatchable. It’s therefore unsurprising that people may prefer to create viewing experiences on their own terms, leaving live news, sports and entertainment as the defining features of television as a medium. Cable companies in the United States are continuing to lose video customers, but mainly to satellite and telco competitors. Although commentators like to talk about so-called ‘cord cutting,’ the reality is that cable companies are signing up more and more customers to broadband.
