Watching TV shows and movies comfortably in bed or on the sofa is the new “going out”. More and more people everyday subscribes to Netflix or Apple TV or platforms like those which guarantee you to watch all the newest movies and the newest TV shows on your computer instead of buying DVDs or going to the cinema. This new method is called Internet Protocol Television. It seems quite obvious and not so new to us but actually it is not. The Internet Protocol Television was born in 1995 but it wasn’t that popular. In 2008 it started gaining success in the first world countries but it still hadn’t the importance it has now. With the invention of Netflix and Apple TV and Sky Go and all these we all know is now one of the things we can not live without. Actually Netflix started as a DVD-by-mail service in 1998, and became a streaming service only in 2007; now it has 75 million subscribers, its own TV shows and movies and streams in over 190 countries. To access its services you have to pay from 8$ to 12$ (in order to have the basic account or the premium with some more facilities) and you can watch everything you like at home. I find this invention one of the most interesting and useful and the perfect example of media convergence.
