Televisions are as much a part of our lives today as any appliance we use on a consistent basis. Whether large or small, on the cutting-edge of technology or not, many of us tune in to some type of video nearly every day. For some, video entertainment is a major component of the daily routine, complete with a large screen home theater and a host of ancillary video displays throughout the home. For others, perhaps catching the daily news or weather on a small bedroom TV is adequate, and their entertainment priorities lie elsewhere. Whatever the case, video distribution is a part of how we consume information.
