In the US six decades ago, broadcast TV has started offering channels 1 to 10, and the number of channels has been continually padded until it reached a thousand channels with feeds via satellite and cable channels during the 80s. Amid the significant technological advancements and changes in the entertainment media, providers are moving towards the introduction of more than 100,000 channels in the next few years, and the offerings can be accessed by consumers through a broad mix of smart TV, cable, broadcast and smartphone apps.
