I guess it’s just a matter of time when all TV is on the internet. Once the tech-savvy generation that grew up with the Internet is oldest generation alive, companies won’t have any trouble moving their transmissions and programs online.
Watching TV shows on the TV doesn’t interest me anymore. It’s freeing to be able to watch shows you wanna watch whenever it suits you, instead of being locked in a schedule, which might not fit with the rest of your life. It’s also more engaging to watch several episodes of a show on consecutive nights, instead of watching one episode a week. Shows with an overarching storyline, such as House, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad or True Blood become immensely more enjoyable when you’re able to watch the episodes with less time in-between them, but on the other hand with shows like CSI, Flashpoint, South Park or Seth MacFarlane’s shows it doesn’t really matter, since there isn’t much of an overarching storyline.
Anyway, I can’t wait ’till I have a chance to purchase shows online at an affordable price, without having to get DVD discs or whatever.
