Is the End Near for the Satellite Dish?
During its recent financial results reporting, U.K. broadcaster and Internet Service Provider (ISP) Sky announced it will launch Sky over fiber in Italy and the company’s first all-IP service in Austria, “both without the need for a satellite dish,” according to Jeremy Darroch, group chief executive at Sky. The service will include all Sky channels and on-demand content streamed over IP. The question remains: will other broadcasters follow this step? Will this mean the end of the satellite dish?
