yet again …

net_neutrality_poster“The project would let cable and satellite TV subscribers watch up-to-date cable shows on the Web, and possibly on mobile phones, for free possibly as soon as this summer, the sources said. The idea is to give customers added flexibility to view their favorite shows. It is also seen as a preemptive strike against possible ‘cord-cutting’ of video services, particularly by younger subscribers used to watching other programs online.”

U.S. cable, programmers set for Web TV by summer

this move will here by make services like Hulu and youtube Illegal most likely once the content providers start offering to give this content to their customer base, they will go after the online services and shut them down because they are “stealing.” Now I’m not saying this is what is going to happen but if you just look back at whats been going on the conglomerates are following a trend the adopt new technology set it up to make money only offer to ppl one way and over price the service them go after the services that provide it free because its stealing from them.

Never underestimate Cable Co’s ability to keep customers trapped to their ridiculous subscriptions loaded with garbage channels no one watches. we get to watch how some of the most hated and unnecessary companies in the world threaten, litigate and legislate their way into a new revenue stream that the consumer then forced to accept.

Here’s where net neutrality becomes even more important than ever… If they can start wedging out the “real” content sites once the ISP’s start providing their own content, then we’re going to have some difficult times ahead for the Internet.

  1. That sucks. I’d miss youtube and hulu.

    Kinda of OT, but I felt sad when I found that some of the videos I favorited disappeared, because of copyright infringement. One of them was the original video for Michael Buble’s Lost. If you search youtube for it, you won’t find it…only fan-made vids of the song.

  2. it goes hand and hand with what ive been talking about latly… the content providers are really hitting youtube hard about the copy right thing and they are now removing audio from videos if it has “copy righted” music and such.

    we really need to start writing to our reps up at the white house telling them to support net neutrality without it … the internet as we know it will die …

  3. If the ISP’s provide their own content, does that mean that they would have more control over viruses and trojans, like in keeping those attacks down? Or would it have no effect?

  4. Light, it would have no effect what so ever. because focusing on copyright issues apparently are way too important than fighting spam, viruses, and trojans alike.

    they think the millions they make now isnt enough so they think they need more
