I sell nothing but pure pixie delight, I think you missed out on my point Hex, we either have adds, during a dramatisation, comedy, or entertainment hour or sponsorship, or we will end up having them in the programs that have being created,

**Dramatic moment**
**Hex (shocked)** But what did you say after he found out you were a life
**Pixie (confused)** I don't know, I wasn't like expecting him to appear, how dose one not sound like a ghost
**Hex (Perplexed too) I don't know, should we have a Coke Zero though

**Pixie, (brightens) Yeah sure why not, that might sort it out **head in hands**

**coke zero, right there for you**

Ahhh your a scream Lunch Sunday week? No coke zero

On-demand is a different story. This is where Sky can't compete with cable. Cable can offer the complete on-demand service in a single box. I still maintain that on-demand is where it's going to go with the internet filling in Satellites technology gaps.

I can say that most people I know wouldn't stream as they have children and use the TV as entertainment for them, but they quite happily download their own stuff.

TV as entertainment for kids is an everyday part of life, as long as it is controlled it's not a problem. I know of at least 4 families in the small cul-de-sac I live in that refuse to let their kids out to play, at all, ever, TV must be a huge part of their life (I could be wrong, but the tell tale reflection in the bedroom windows says it all). It's a whole other discussion and there are numerous threads on it.

It's not just kids that stop adults changing over from cable/digital. I think it's a lot to do with a comfort factor and what they believe is a choice between computer/net activity and the familiar tv.

Ok, so I read through some of the report and the average spend on TV is actually down .7%
What increased was bundles with TV, broadband, and Voice.
And there was an average 19% increase of the internet for TV watching/downloading.

Not really the internet is approaching its capacity, if they start streaming all television at this moment in time you would get serious brownouts as they are called.

They would be streamed from central data centres and not the internet. BT Vault/Vision is a good example. They hold both ITV and BBC content and have done for some years. The network technology is already there it's just when it reaches commercial viability. Virgin here are already rolling out fibre optic straight into the home.

We cant keep consuming the power that decentralised storage consumes, it's really bad for the environment and managing data is a headache in the long term. As long as it's there when you need it does it really matter where it's being stored and it's safe!

The internet is a very fragile beast! It's run like a nationalised railway.

Ironically the banks probably have the most resiliant IT network. Information is their business so without access they are dead. They invest huge amounts in infrastructure which is why we have seen such a fallout in IT with the mergers/nationalisation. The market is flooded with IT folk at the moment

Aw come on this has being going on for years, eg radio to cinema to television to video to programs on demand. The viewers are the people that dictate what happens, but to get out there they still need sponsorship, and believe they organisiers will. What is happening now is that major coperation roots are being messed with them same is going on in the music industry and they are scared and trying to do everything possible than change their roots or the ground they are basically standing on.

Ok an ablum for any artist would take about 5000 euro to get an album done cheaper if you have talent. (being going on for years) The big problem is getting it out there eg marketing the record labels owned that, now that is about to fail things of mass mareting are about to ome a thing of the past, why cause of web sites like gaire, facebook. So typically a movie well made or drama, comedy ect will become for 100k well may become more popular and that scares the living be jeezs out of anyone who was in a 1,000,000,000 movie. do you know what I mean.?

So with change certain industries if the don't change the end up dead, I guess that happens so why did radio survive?

There has been a shift back to radio, myself included. Why? Because there is so much shit on TV. If the independant TV companies don't have the money/revenue streams they can't produce the output! Radio is a far cheaper medium. As I said it hasn't finished yet.

I think all these talent shows have grown a bit tired! The real winner is the show itself not the winner. And the same songs over, and over again e.g. Aint no Sunshine, Hero etc. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
