The War for the Digital Home

And if those stakes aren't high enough, there's also a slice of the many dollars spent each month by Americans increasingly turning to the Web not only for communications, but also entertainment. The Web is quickly emerging as a key distribution point for the gamut of programming, from Welcome Back Kotter reruns to pre-TV broadcasts of 24. U.S. Internet-connected households spend an average $214 a month on such items as phone service, movies, cable and satellite, and digital downloads, according to researcher Parks Associates. Of that, only $6.50 is spent on online music, games, and video.

From the article "The War for the Digital Home," by Cliff Edwards.
