After many years the time has come again: the first real streaming box is here. The interesting thing with this box is that you can no longer directly connect a TV to this receiver; the TV channels (and also, of course, radio channels) are just being streamed. Therefore, this new method opens up an entirely new market segment that fits right in with our time: the TV channels that are received by the receiver can be streamed to your own Smartphones and Tablets and it’s those types of “TVs” are being used by more and more viewers. But your regular TV can also receive these channels as long as it can be connected to your local network. So, streaming boxes are fulfilling the precise requirements that are demanded from today’s viewers. People today don’t want to be restricted to watching their favorite programs on a stationary TV in the living room, kitchen or bedroom, they want to be able to watch on mobile devices like the new Smartphones with their large high- resolution screens or on tablets that would allow you to watch TV at any position. An interesting consequence of this new generation of streaming boxes is the impact on TVs. For many years we here at TELE-audiovision were also in doubt as to whether digital receivers would be incorporated into TVs over the long term. With these new streaming boxes, the picture is now totally different: now it’s TVs with built-in receivers that have no future. Soon all you’ll need is just one streaming box and as many wired or wireless monitors as you want connected to the local network. The streaming box would be installed in a central location and connected to all the available digital reception methods (roof antenna, satellite dish, cable TV, Internet) and that would be it. Every monitor in the network would then have access to the content received by the streaming box. Now we can’t wait to see more streaming boxes and are looking forward to see how quickly this new receiver generation will prevail. The digital TV market continues to be exciting!
