B201 - Establishing Parity Between Online Video and Broadcast Television

We are starting to see momentum gather for online video: cable subscribers are declining and online video consumption is increasing. But the two experiences, watching TV and watching online video, aren’t the same yet. Broadcast television generally has better quality, more consistent delivery, and improved customer service.
