PLUS: Mark Cuban is buying sewerage?? I have always advocated that every domain is not just a storefront but potentially a broadcast station that can be heard around the world without networks, levels of management, license or bureaucracy. I've called the mode "Direct to Domain."
Now Google Chromecast makes it possible for those broadcasts from any domain to be streamed over any flat screen. Content coming from CookingWithTomatoes.com looks and sounds just as it did as if it came from the food channel, except now no cable bill is necessary to pay for,and you don' have to wait for Food Channel to decide when to feature it. It's a major sea change and also shows Google is a solid technology company, not just a little search engine any more.
It's not that you couldn't do it before, but Chromecast makes it easy for all those folks who couldn't program a VCR and for the most part have no clue how to use their remote.
For dotTV (which in its nakedest form is a broadcast license), it opens potential High Definition wide-screen reception, so if you got great content and professional production values, the sea is your oyster.
