How Online Video Will Challenge DVRs' Role

    Why Read This Report

    Digital video recorders (DVRs) have become popular devices with consumers who want to control their television viewing, but today, online streaming services make it possible for viewers to get their entertainment fix more easily on more devices than ever.
