The people that own YouTube telling everyone how great it is is the same as CBS talking about how many of their shows are "ranked Number One".

I'm big into Youtube. Every other day or so, I will watch anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours of content from people I'm subscribed to. It's like keeping up with many shows at the same time, except whenever you want, free from advertisement, and with content that is based around what you want to watch.

 

You can get your comedy shows and skits, your science shows, your music, your sports related stuff, your daily dose of Ellen DeGeneres' show, etc. Hell, Philip DeFranco is probably even my top source of news most of the time.

 

I'm not gonna be too quick to say it's gonna replace TV, but when normal kids are becoming multimillionaires off of 4 minute Youtube videos twice a month (Ryan Higa comes to mind), it's obviously got a huge market.

Google wants to get into sports streaming. The day they do that and do it well is the day I no longer have use for cable.

Also a big reason why sports leagues have been signing massive TV contracts lately- sports are one of the only things TV execs can count on people watching on their TV (because it looks so much better in HD) and watching live (no DVRing through the ads)

yep. live sports is a big ole fat leverage for the networks.

 

i get the sense from the ads that time warner is approaching online content or is at least amping up for it.

 

there are some things i just prefer on a tv than my laptop or pc. i just don't like watching movies on the computer. it kills the vibe for me for some reason.

Smart Tv's are already on the market and growing in popularity. Soon there will be little difference between a computer and a television.

 

Most schools already broadcast their own sporting events online and they're getting better every year.

 

Earlier this year I watched UNC Charlotte play Kennesaw State online. Kennesaw State of all schools had an HD video feed. I had it hooked up to my television and couldn't tell the difference between it and a regular HD tv feed. It was amazing.

 

If Kennesaw State can do it, schools with better resources can definitely do something much better.
