Is This The Future Of TV?

 

 

Portland telco delivers local DTV stations via IPTV to Roku box

 

"To date, these IP-based, OTT services have not offered local channels, but that’s now changing."

 
"A trend has begun to emerge among multichannel video programming distributors (MVPD) to stem the tide of “cord cutters” that continue to cancel their subscriptions in favor of on-demand services like those from Apple, Netflix, Roku and others. The solution, many feel, is to give customers what they want: a lower monthly TV service bill that allows them to pick and choose the programs they want to watch, and live broadcasts from local TV stations."
