Some consider it as something that is destined to happen while others won't even give it a fighting chance.? As computers and technology evolve, more and more people are moving away from their television sets and spending their free time on computers.?

It all started with emails.? When free email accounts were made available to the public, people could not get enough of it.? To be honest, the majority of people are still engrossed with the email phenomenon, all the way to the point where they will stop watching television just to read or write an email.?

Shortly after email came other Internet paradigms.? Before you knew it, instant messaging programs, social networking websites, and an endless supply of online videos were reaching computers worldwide.? With all of this entertainment at any online user's fingertips, what else could the Internet provide that could rival traditional cable and satellite entertainment?

What about this: instead of finding alterative streams of entertainment aside from television stations, why not put those television stations right on the Internet?? This is exactly what is currently going on and is slowly gaining in popularity.? The question is whether or not it will be as popular as other Internet phenomenon's?

As of now, people seem to like where Internet television is going.? Take for example the online product at .? They offer to give you 3,000 different television and radio stations (including local, national and global channels) all for a one-time fee.? No matter if you are into sports, news, movies, shopping, or anything else that you find visually entertaining, this company is willing to give it all to you without any recurring fees.?

Many people have already jumped on the bandwagon to gain access to these Internet television stations through mediums like , but is it enough to consider standard cable and satellite television a thing of the past?? Most would probably say no, but others are pondering the impact online television stations will have.? After all, it has been proven in numerous studies that people are spending a lot more time in front of their computers than they have in the past.

Honestly, with Internet television alternatives such as , there could be some detrimental effects to traditional cable and satellite tv.? After all, the Internet television service is dramatically cheaper, there are no monthly or recurring fees, and you are able to get the same channels off of traditional cable and satellite television.? But then again, cable and satellite providers have proven their value to people.? Since the whole idea of Internet television stations is still pretty new, many people will continue to be skeptical about it until the technology has proven itself.? In the end, the success of Internet television is in the eyes of the beholder.
