No longer can you catch up on all the best TV shows simply by paying up the wazoo for all the cable channels and recording them on your PVR. Now the premium content is increasingly spread out among conventional television networks, cable channels and subscription-based services including Netflix, Crave and Shomi (plus Hulu and Amazon in the U.S.). […] Netflix and Amazon are only two of the online broadcasters that are challenging conventional TV networks that ruled the airwaves before the era of fibre optics. You also have Hulu, Crackle, DirecTV and a bunch of other online purveyors that are changing the face of TV programming. What is astonishing is the pace. – Tony Wong, The Toronto Star
