The Stone Age of Video

March 2008
Multichannel News;3/17/2008, Vol. 29 Issue 12, p36
The author reflects on the evolution of video in the U.S., particularly the introduction of online video such as the professional video site, Hulu. He notes that the launching of Hulu by the National Broadcasting Co. and the News Corp. marks the advent of a Bronze Age in online video in America. However, with the existing rampant video piracy, the author believes that it will take more years before any companies can declare that there is to be a real Golden Age of online video.
