Why is video on demand low on demand in Israel?
Locals use VOD services far less than Americans, even though they have the technology. But, as one expert explains it, prime-time viewing is like gathering around a national 'tribal fire.’
If you were to rate it according to the number of subscribers to delayed-broadcast services it has, Israel would be a global leader. About half of all households have devices for recording and replaying broadcasts, and between cable broadcaster HOT and satellite broadcaster Yes, there are some 700,000 subscribers to video-on-demand services nationwide.
