Cable TV vs. Tech Companies

When 'House of Cards' came out on Netflix, the internet went wild. But when they won an Emmy? The television industry began to worry. Things are changing and the television industry is beginning to deteriorate with the rise of shows from Netflix, Amazon and other tech companies. With shows like 'House of Cards' and 'Orange is the New Black', it's really interesting to see where the television industry is heading. If you have not had the pleasure of watching Kevin Spacey in HoC, then you need to get with the program. He is absolutely mesmerizing as he plays the Democrat House Majority Whip, who is quite conniving with his political scheming. Below is Kevin Spacey speaking about how tech companies, such as Netflix, have the "potential to disrupt the traditional cable and network TV model of forcing content creators to make a pilot before accepting a show" (BI). For now, I'm patiently waiting for Season 2 of 'House of Card'.
