Net Native TV

September 13, 2010 10:17:54.000

Between things like Netflix, AppleTV, Hulu (etc) - and YouTube, there's already a ton of video on the net. Now the live streaming side is heating up:

The rumors were true: after months — years, even — of speculation, YouTube is preparing to launch a full-fledged live streaming platform, enabling its content parters to stream their video directly to users in real-time. This will put the service in direct competition with the likes of Ustream, Justin.tv, and Livestream. We recently caught screenshots of a live streaming option in the wild that YouTube only made available to its politics-oriented channel CitizenTube. Obviously it has much bigger plans for the feature.

With so many options being created, I can't see how the traditional "appointment TV" model will survive....
