1- Any evidence available?
I try to use the term Pay-to-view or pay-for-view to describe the subscription services of Comcast, BSkyB etc. I believe this is correct. If you don't pay your cable (Comcast) bill you do not view anything, you pay to view or you pay for your all your viewing.
I try not to use Pay-per-View as that is subset within Pay-to-view, paying an additional premium for specific shows.
Like a majority of American's I get my information via the internet, watch movies on home monitors via the internet. The only time I employ Pay-for-view is during NFL season when I use my Pay-for-view DirectTV to add the premium Pay-per-view NFL ticket to watch...are you ready...the Eagles. DirectTV lets you suspend service for six months a year which is a nice feature.
Hope that explains what can be a confusing layer of pay for services.
In regard to AC34, I think they should have the America's Cup live on the web as a pay-per-view subscrtiption. Pay per view since it does not apply to one's entire internet viewing just a specific program, ergo the "per". I'd offer AC free with ads for basic services and a $20 enhanced version with no ads and all the on screen heads up display stuff, multi screens etc.
In surveys conducted by the Pew Project for Excellence in Journalism, 34% of respondents said they read news online within the past 24 hours (as opposed to 31% who favored newspapers); and a full 41% said they get most of their news online, 10% more than those who said they got most of their news from a newspaper Of course, the 18-to-29-year-old group overwhelmingly cast their vote with the web; 65% said the Internet was their main news source.
Man, you are so full of it. Is it in you to ever said "I was wrong", or "I misspoke"?
Your explanation is bullshit. You implied the majority of Americans don't use "pay-for-view". That is bullshit. Most Americans do subscribe to cable/satellite service. And you did originally imply it was pay-PER-view. Also, there is a HUGE difference between getting information and viewing entertainment/sports. The VAST majority of sports viewing is done through subscription media, not pay-per-view, not streaming.
