There are one of two paths that television will be taking in the future, one path more likely than the other. Path one will be channeling television on demand through the Internet. The other path will be channeling the Internet through the cable box that sits on top of more than 68 million American television sets. Each path has its pitfalls and strong points, and is at least a decade or so away. The other question concerning television of the future is cost. One path that television may take is channeling via the Internet. The most likely way that television would be channeled through the net would be through Progressive Network�s RealVideo. �. . .RealVideo could transform the Net into a mass-market conduit for all manner of video content - one that could challenge the landed interests of the TV industry. . .� (Real 123).

Middle

I actually put many hours of thought into how service could be provided. Should I ever be in a position to influence the way that future television services would be offered, this is how I would do it. First, I would only charge for only when in use, there would be no flat fees. If a subscriber did not use the services provided on any given day, that person would not be charged. There would be three levels of subscription, with low basic fees when in use. These three levels of subscription will also be able to access, for an additional fee, what I call �Package Deals.� Basic would be the lowest level of service. Basic users would get cable service as we know it today. There would be no access to the Internet, it would be exactly like television today. There would also be an extra fee for �Package Deals.� This fee would be highest for the Basic subscriber. The next level would be the Middle level of viewing. Middle subscribers would get access to the Internet and all of the services it provides for a slightly higher fee than the Basic subscriber. Online games will have a low fee, only incurred when in use. Middle subscribers will also get all of the options of Basic users, except that the fee for �Package Deals� would be slightly lower than the fee for Basic subscribers. ...read more.
