Now time for a nice cup of tea in time for the next stream.

The big TV networks around the world are feeling the pinch as the recession bites, but it is foreseen to get much worse over the coming maturate.
It has been predicted that The major networks could lose as much as 75% advertising receipts over the next 10 years. The research by London based Generator Research, predicts that the traditional telecasting advertising market in the US could shrink from the existing $58 billion to a mere $13 billion.

The research group estimates that 25 percent of TV viewing will take attribute on the internet by late next decade and that ultimately half of all viewing of TV timber video will take place on the internet, equal to the time viewers spend watching TV.

 Says Sheehy: “We are aware that all the TV manufacturers are planning to produce internet-enabled TV sets. In the long term, it’ll be a direct connection. But in the interim it’ll be through a separate box.”

 In 10 years, under this new model, traditional TV spots would account for some 25 percent of TV dollars years but a second stream would come from internet connected TV sets. Internet connected TV content alone could be generating nearly $18 billion in ad revenue by 2019, according to Sheehy.

A 3rd potential source of ad revenue would come from TV content, complete with ads, that the networks deliver to chopines such as cell phones.

“If the networks take to embrace the change and try to manage the changeover from purely broadcast to broadcast plus internet, then we’re projecting that the advertising revenues enjoyed by companies like Fox and NBC will truly go up in the long term, not down,” says Sheehy.

The networks need to adapt now or else of pretending a worldwide internet TV market does not exist. Adapt and survive or stay still and die.
