Did you try to watch any of the inauguration events from Jan. 20 online? All the news channels carried coverage throughout the day. The problem is that so many people tried to access feeds that the Internet was just overloaded with traffic. My coworkers tried to watch at the desks. Some had good feeds. Many had jerky video at best.
Meanwhile, broadcast signals carried on without interruption. I know we’re heading to a packet-switched delivery for everything we do, but there’s still something to be said for the unlimited receiver capability of a broadcast signal.
