Why I don’t have cable

For 15 years or so I paid for cable TV access. To start I was just like everyone else, porting it directly into my TV – then digital receiver. By the end I had 2 pvr’s from the cable company, and 2 media PC’s – each with 2 tuners apiece. I was able to record 8 shows at once, half of which were immediately available across my entire network as MPEG4’s.

Now … what’s the point? Everything’s available as quickly as it’s aired/released via torrent – sometimes even sooner. Popular channels are available via live stream – commercials and all. They may well be local to a far foreign land, but still.

Myself, I primarily watch sports channels/events live, and download movies, or shows to watch in batches. Stream2Watch, iLive, and goatd account for 99% of my browser activity that isn’t Facebook/youTube related.
