TV vs on demand

Interesting, especially in light of that longstanding that we really should resolve sometime network vs broadcast bet with TC: Netflix and Amazon don’t have enough content to replace cable TV.

We got DirecTV abck in December mostly for HGTV. But we found the DVR that comes with the service is really great and the video quality is hard to beat. It's easier than bitorrent!

I've found that by switching to getting my TV via shiny circular pieces of plastic, plus Amazon Prime Streaming, that yeah, there's not enough TV to fill all the hours I used to spend watching it, so I have to find non-TV things to do some evenings.

The horror!

Where do people find time to watch so much TV? I'd listen to music 24/7 if I could, and I enjoy good radio programming (Thanks NPR ) and a movie every few days. But there is just so much else to do, and TV/Video is just distracting (to me) to have on as "background".
