This year, for the first time Americans will spend more hours on a mobile device than watching traditional television. This is an important tipping point for major news networks.
With the next presidential race fast approaching, the major news networks need to focus on live streaming services. Why? because traditional TV viewer will be retiring soon while the "millennial generation" is coming into its prime and they use mobile OTT services.
NBC News launched a free streaming service, following ABC and CBS to be another major news player moving resources into live web-only programming.
