Television Is SOOO Over

I have not had cable for over five years.  In NYC that means not having TV since broadcast reception is so poor.  Granted I have always been a greater fan of movies (I saw two last night), than shows in general, but 2008 certainly marks the year by which my practice no longer seems like a compromise.

The NY Times picked up on this yesterday.  I could be that executive Holson cites; my wife and I watched the presidential debates on our laptops.  Although I was a beta user, this week I got the Netflix email that their "Watch Now" feature was available for Macs finally.  Although NBC/Universal laid off 500 employees yesterday, Hulu is a real success.  Aren't there more than enough reasons now to recognize the obvious.
Looking for ways to get on the recession diet: drop cable.  Live online instead.
