Linear broadcast TV, delivered over the air or by a cable provider was watched on a regular schedule in homes. But this past decade has seen a rush of TV innovation that soon will revolutionize the industry. Starting with Tivo, then Bittorrent, then countless legitimate video sites, our content distribution systems are becoming less clear.
