The New News Medium Part II

The other thing I see quite often now is the use of broadband to deliver (live) news feeds by some of the traditional networks. The quality is so-so with a fair bit of pixelation, but still acceptable by my reckoning......of course an interesting bit of information would be the amount of money these networks are saving by using the Internet to deliver an outdoor broadcast feed. I would imagine the cost of the Internet access would be significantly less than that of say buying satellite segments to broadcast the feed. Needless to say this will lead to some impact to satellite revenue as the quality of video over broadband improves.....and improve it will.........and quickly.
