How much video do you watch online? There was an article about
Canadian watching 3.1 billion videos online
in February, which is 10 hours of viewing, up 53% from their
average viewing time last year. It is not that surprising given that
more and more videos are being available online. But it is still quite
a large amount.
Personally, I don't watch a lot of YouTube. If someone sends
me a video I'll watch it, and I might spend a bit of time looking at
some related video content it but I typically don't spend a lot of time
just searching for something to watch.
Now when it comes to TV shows online, that's where I spend my
time. For a while there I watched more shows on my laptop than I did on
the TV. It is convenient to be able to pick and choose what I watched
and when. Especially for shows that I might not get channels for. And
this is without access to Hulu (being in Canada we don't have access
Speaking of Hulu, there are a lot of rumors circulating that
there is an iPhone app being created that will let users watch videos
through Hulu anywhere they want, which is a great application in my
mind. And something that I would love to see, with my fingers crossed
that I will be able to use it.
So with the growing amount of video online, and home networks
being easier to set up, is there still the need for a paying for cable?
Sure, there might be a bit of a delay in getting the shows, and
depending on how you find them, the quality might be poor, but the
convenience is definitely there.
