By no means is this perfect, but we’re hearing of Dish Network beginning to embrace the idea of streaming TV content to people on mobile devices. Unlike Hulu video content over the Internet, this offering from Dish has more in common with live stream events currently offered over the Net.
Will people be jumping over themselves to use Dish’s new service and stream via a separate device, still to be purchased by the end user? It’s nice to have the option, but I am simply unsure as to the value of all of this simply to stream live TV over a device that must be bought.
Is streaming TV worth it? On a mobile device, for someone traveling, maybe. But I’d prefer an iTunes like option where I don’t need additional hardware to enjoy it. What say you? Does Dish’s offering sound like a great opportunity you’d like?
