Video Streaming — Who Needs Television

It was a satisfying feeling when I happened upon a website recently that told me that groups I have always enjoyed are back together.

This group had been performing for 30 years to capacity crowds. Then came their farewell concert tour and everyone thought they would only hear about this group in the context of history.

Today two of the original members are touring on a limited basis. The feel is a little different than the original group, but it is compelling enough to reconnect with the career of this new, yet old, group.

How do I know this? Did I read about it?

No! This information came in the form of a fifteen-minute video stream with the two principle artists in the group. They spoke candidly about the reformation of the group and the new simplified sound and direction. They spoke of the emotional difficulties they experienced when the group went their separate ways and how a one time performance set the stage for a new album, tour and renewed life for this respected group.

Video streams react to an on-demand generation. You can visit the websites of news organizations and watch online video streams of the news you want to see. In some cases this is viewed as an extension to television news coverage, but for some this is an on-demand replacement for television newscasts.

In fact and a host of other websites provide comprehensive news coverage through video streaming and their marketing strategy is to let it be known that this coverage is news on demand and online. These companies are not seeking terrestrial stations to send their video streams too, they are relying consistently on online video streams — and their success continues to grow.

News reporters who once had a place on terrestrial television are now finding uncommon success in online news reporting. Elaborate sets are designed (or created through the use of green screens). These online video streams talk to the same newsmakers you might find on regular television, but you view the end product on your time.

Many of these video streams are made possible through the sale of typical video advertising that precedes the actual video clip making the end product free to the end user.

The growth of video streams is impacting national and international news, business forecasts, entertainment and music.

What may be the most surprising is those who may have wanted time on television to provide information in the past are now more than content to take their message directly to the people and allow them to watch at their convenience. Many are wondering why they would want to make video available any other way.
