Just so you know, I don’t mean the actual “TV.com” website in the title. It was supposed to be like a play on words kind of thing.
Anyway, on to the post.
Remember the good old days when we used to watch tv shows on that box called a “television”?
And, who could forget that addon that allowed you to record a show on a cassette tape?
Well, sorry to break your 97 year old hearts but, we don’t use those items anymore. They went out like dinosaurs. And, no, not the tv show. That was a funny show.
We all know the “wave of the future” for everything in life will revolve around high-tech methods such as computers and/or the internet. It wasn’t until the begining of YouTube people started watching tv on the net. Now, let’s not confuse streaming episodes and movies with downloading them (I don’t plan to go into details). Of course, what stopped that was all the lawsuits.
We have HD/DTV, Blu-ray DVD, TVio & DVR cable boxes and the rest of the crap that’s out. So, as I once asked before, if we can get our tv/movie content off the web off sites like Hulu and network sites and even file sharing, why bother even having a tv set? Why have a DVD player? What point is it to have cable, DVR’s, and TVio if we can just do all that in one box: the computer?
I can honestly say I only look at the tv for WWE’s Raw and some anime on [adult swim] (yay Inuyasha!).
