The Future of Internet TV

By: The BitMar Team.

Thanks to the infrastructure of the Internet, the Web has really evolved, and become the medium of it all – VoIP, streaming (live radio, music, and video on-demand) – and, now: even TVoIP, at high resolutions.

Although online video repositories, like YouTube (, and Vevo (, may not be direct TV replacements (technically); their audience-reach have had a tremendous effect on the way that the younger generations – the future of our world – consume TV-like entertainment. Today’s “I-want-it-all” consumer expectancy has become the main fuel behind on-demand services, like Netflix, Hulu, and all-in-one TV systems, and apps, like BitMar.

Thanks to the existence of the aforementioned industry players (and possibly many more to come), cutting the cord is just much easier than ever—and it will continue to become even more so, in the future. The good news is clear: The potential winner of this revolution is obviously the consumer. But how will it all unfold?

The Future:

The future of Television is full of great things, but it is not necessarily very surprising. It is safe to say that most of us already have a general vision, on what the current TV path will eventually unveil. Due to the current behavioral changes in TV consumption, it is possible that Linear TV (also known as “Live TV,” or “Broadcast TV”), will eventually meet an inevitable transition; that will incorporate other technologies—at the consumption-end, and at its core.

Rather than a system that requires a television set, at the end of the tunnel, the way things are going, the entire Television industry may one day turn completely virtual, and untied, to any specific hardware device. Content makers may mostly distribute their TV content, over the Cloud; rather than through its current broadcasting infrastructure. But where does that leave current TV carriers (Cable, and Satellite, TV operators)?

Even if TV broadcasting goes completely dead, there would still be a very important role, for carriers to fill. Since many of them already offer Internet services, this could eventually become their sole area of focus. As technology advances, perhaps one day they can force us into ultra-high-speed Internet packages, that also include a dial-up option (that is a pun, aimed at how they currently offer their TV channel packages.) No hard feelings, though. We did not know any better.

Get ready for the future, because very soon we may not even be able to tell the difference between a television set, and a smart display—or even a smart wall (ponder that one, for a minute.) Smart walls, and displays (everywhere, around our homes) may soon be the replacements to the current TV set. Current TV makers will perhaps evolve, into manufacturers of these multi-purpose displays. So... they will most likely stay in business, for the long haul, as well. Hand-held devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops, and hybrids) will shift; from being considered second-screens, to main screens. In fact, at some point, big screens will simply become displays, wherein we would project (cast, and/or mirror) our content, from our hand-held devices.

Content Delivery:

Since TV is evolving into portable software systems, that will require the re-thinking of how we connect, it is possible that smarter data transmission standards could eventually make transmission speeds less important. Imagine an open standard that could allow us to receive individual data packets from many different sources, simultaneously – satellites, nodes, different cell towers, nearby hotspots, etc. What if our devices were smart enough to tap into that awesome power, only when necessary? (This would help ease traffic burdens, on individual networks.)

Regardless of whom the providers may be... in today’s world, content would have to be electronically-delivered, to users’ smart devices. The new generations want it all Cloud-fed – and they are willing to sacrifice quality, over simplicity, and portability. Their consumption pattern says it all.


Since almost every device is becoming app-driven, one of the major challenges facing most TV system integrators, and developers, is the ability to develop, and deliver, TV applications, in a timely manner. With today’s “I-want-it-all” end-users, the problem is not just about being able to design a system that can deliver entertainment. The real issue is being able to provide a considerable variety of TV content apps within a system. Each individual TV app can cost tens-of-thousands-to-hundreds-of-thousands of dollars; to engineer, design, test, and distribute.
