Multimedia, AV An interesting anecdote at MinimalMac about television being broken. The author's young daughter, who is growing up in a Netflix/Hulu/iTunes/etc. household, was confronted with actual TV for the first time, and wonders why she can't pick what to watch, why the shows are being interrupted all the time, and so on. Clearly - TV is broken.

TV is a mess, indeed. I stopped watching it years ago, at the same time I stopped owning a TV box.
I won't sign up for cable either. It's all mostly shit.
In the last year I've become more and more happy with the BBC iPlayer, many of their programmes are excellent, especially the Nature/Science ones, I'm so impressed with it that I want to start paying their BBC tax thing.
For anything else there's p2p and/or youtube.com.
I watch what I want, when I want, how I want.
