new ways of accessing video content

5. Emerging Technologies in the Video World

New Ways of Accessing Video Content
  • Technological advancements over the past ten years have given rise to a variety of new platforms for consumers to receive and view video programming, including video-on-demand (VOD), personal video recorders (PVRs), Internet streaming and Internet downloading.
  • These new platforms and technologies have affected the video opportunities available to Canadians in three key ways.
      • They significantly expanded where consumers can receive and watch video programming.
      • All of these new platforms, with the exception of some forms of Internet streaming, can be characterized as on-demand services which free viewers from the rigidity of program schedules.
      • Some new platforms provide video in a significantly different format from traditional television.
