ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of offering television programs that are not using personal computers as a necessary in-between device for capturing movies in the U.S. Efforts to put a solution to these problems was the partnership between Netflix Inc. and LG Electronics, in which they will make use of an in-home receiver. Apple Inc. is also offering a new-and-improved Apple TV System, which delivers movies without the participation of a computer.
