Streaming video is the answer?
The New York Times tells us that streaming is the answer to Online Video escaping niche audiences. I'm not so sure.
Streaming is good if you want to monitor viewing, and simple to deliver. But on today's average broadband connection the experience is bad. That's not going to change soon, becuase the speed of broadband connections fluctuates significantly. There's always likely to be a glitch if you push the connection to the limits to get a good picture quality.
I think that with good Metadata, the download-based TV experience will be better.
