When does a trend become mainstream? Over-the-top video is rapidly moving toward whatever metric is used to make that determination, according to a pair of new reports.

The first, from Parks Associates, shows that more than 40% of U.S. broadband households selected online video as one of the top three important sources of video, compared to just 25% for rented DVDs and 13% for owned Blu-ray discs.

Netflix keeps flow of original content going with new comedy series
Mar 19 2014 9:00 AM

Looking to press its evolution as an Internet TV network a la HBO, and betting that original content will help it attract and retain subscribers, Netflix is dipping back into the original content well for a 13-episode comedy that reunites “9 to 5” stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.

The duo will team up in the half-hour sitcom “Grace and Frankie,” from Skydance Productions; the show will be written and created by Marta Kauffman – who created “Friends” -- and Howard J. Morris.

“Homeland” fan? Maybe “Masters of Sex?” Well, if you also own a Roku box and are an authenticated pay-TV subscriber (in MOST cases – more on that later), you’re in luck.

The cable network today launched on Roku boxes, making it a little easier to access current and catalog content from Showtime.
