I don't think I've turned it on for six months!
The advent of streaming platforms made dent in the case for TV sets as the household's primary media center. After all, why bother saving up for a new TV if you can catch up on a laptop, tablet, or smartphone, especially since those devices offer more degrees of functionality?
Additionally, with on-demand platforms like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu offering some of the most popular programming around, the days of needing a TV set to tune in to your favorite shows already feel like ancient history.
I've been watching GOT on my laptop. I can watch any episode from any season anytime I want. I don't have to catch the latest episode right when it starts, as you do with something you want to see on TV. As soon as the episode is released, I can start it going at any time of my choosing. Unbeatable!
TV simply can't compete. In time, probably a short time, everything will stream over the internet in this way.
It's all going to be about content, and the good content is not on TV, with perhaps the exception of professional sporting events.
Now that our local professional basketball team has returned to it's traditional role of league catfish - sucking on the bottom - there's nothing on any major network or channel that I really want to see.
