The future of television

I have seen the future of television. And it doesn't bode well for cable operators. Although they have wisely diversified into the telephone and internet realms, so we'll lose little sleep over their economic viability.

Here is the latest development. Hulu announced it will soon offer monthly subscriptions of 9.99 per month. You'll be able to view pretty much any cable show for one monthly fee. And if you've checked your cable bill lately, this isn't that far fetched.

Plus Youtube has announced they'll soon be renting movies from their site from as little as 99 cents a view.

Apple TV's next generation is rumoured to be not far down the pipe as well.
And as always, Google TV will also make things interesting as they continue to pioneer their particular product.

When prices are this reasonable, it makes you wonder why anyone would consider downloads from the illegal sites, and all the viruses that come with them.
