Episode Summary

EDIT
"Back in the day, people would turn on their TV specifically to watch the 9p.m. news. But services as Verizon FiOS, Netflix and Hulu - and products as the Boxee Box and the Apple TV - are changing the way we consume television news. Many TV stations nowadays are struggling to get the younger generation to watch their newscast. Why would they watch a late newscast that just covers things they already see LIVE during the day, on their laptops and smartphones?

Apple TV, Roku and Boxee box are working on this, and there are already several apps and hacks out there to stream live TV through these boxes. The digitization of TV is changing the way people get their news and favorite shows - but how is it changing the way it's made? Nowadays, all you need is a smartphone or a single camera to make the news. A 2010 survey by Oriella PR Network found an increase of 20% in traditional news outlets who might be taken off the market. And, an increase of about 5% of publications who will switch their entire publication - online. That seems to be just one trend, of many,moreless
