Is TV still TV if it's not ... on TV? Yes, according to the Emmy Awards. Just another reminder that online content is not only mainstream, but premium entertainment, for millions of viewers.
Reminiscent of how the Emmy-winning 1993 HBO movie Barbarians at the Gate showed cable could be an entertainment powerhouse, this year's multiple Emmy nominations for the Netflix streaming political thriller, House of Cards, portends a bright future for online entertainment. Not only on-demand and multi-channel, but quality content.
