The New York Times > Technology > Pogues Posts: The Future of Television? : "At Brightcove.com, you can watch a longish but intriguing Flash animation that describes the company's vision of a near future in which you don't get TV from antennas, cable or satellite?you get it from the Internet. 'There will be as many video channels as there are Web sites,' the narrator says at one point, because everyone will be able to create video quickly and cheaply. (Heaven knows, we're already at that point.)
It's an intriguing vision, and pretty hard to argue with. Let's just hope that the future does not include the insufferable, four-chord background music loop that Brightcove allows to repeat 173 times without a break behind the narration. "
