Re: ~ Official "I watch TV on my PC" thread ~
I do the same thing.
TV is a waste of money for someone like me, and I'm paying the cable bill, so we're strictly using cable internet. No TV at all.
Pretty much anything I want to watch I can find online one way or another and I don't have to waste 1/3rd of my TV-time watching commercials.
The sooner we can get any TV show online (with short ads) for free, the better off we'll be.
Can you imagine if everyone, everywhere suddenly had an extra hour (or more) of free time in the evenings because their shows had minimal commercials? Most hour long shows are only 41 minutes long. Half hour shows are around 21. That's a ridiculous amount of wasted time...
