Ok, so I'm supposed to watch TV in my own house on a 10 inch screen instead of a big screen. And The money equation is not changed at all. I still pay for internet and cable.

This is better than a TV and a DVR how? exactly? Can I skip ads better? Time shifting? Watch any show on the cable networks any time after it's originally aired. That would be a cool feature and worth paying for.

The fact that you can only use this app in your own home kind of defeats the purpose of having an iPad. Nevertheless, I guess it's a step in the right direction.

So for no additional cost to me, I can watch some TV channels around my house in places where I don't already have TVs (like the deck in my backyard, or my bedroom)?

Yes, this definitely sounds like something to bitch and moan about.

The big gatekeepers, the wireless and cable honchos, make decent dollars from just selling the bandwidth wholesale. But they make a KILLING by clustering all your services to together in tiers, and then, to get something good from level 4, you're spending over $100 for cable TV alone, and you're paying for a lot of crap you'll never want. Sure you can buy a season of a good show for about $35 (Mad Men, for example), and watch Netflix, and Apple TV. But they want to keep pretending that 500 channels is a useful way to transmit information to you, because that's where the Kabletowns make the money.


It's time for the big gatekeepers to die.

Remember when the V-chip was force-effed into every TV made since 1999?

The V-chip was an added provision in U.S. President Bill Clinton's Telecommunications Act of 1996. "If every parent uses this chip wisely, it can become a powerful voice against teen violence, teen pregnancy, teen drug use, and for both learning and entertainment," Clinton said during his speech as he signed the Telecommunications Act on February 8, 1996. "We're handing the TV remote control back to America's parents so that they can pass on their values and protect their children."[3]

The content they intended to destroy is alive and...thriving. Pregnant teen hoes banging greasy dudes everywhere, and kids love it!

The V-chip should have been the end to unreasonable censorship in real adult programming.

Shoot, not a chance in heck... I gotta tinkle.

This is the future. If Apple can get all TV services (OK, a bunch of them) to put out apps and allow direct streaming to Live content, they can not only port Live TV services to all IOS devices, they can have them all be used with iTV and therefor ditch any boxes. When Steve "Finally Cracked It" it was with apps/IOS IMO.

Keep em coming


I personally hope that this isn't the future. So far, all these services require a cable-subscription plan. I want a future in which cable TV plays absolutely no role.

The cable cos still just don't get it, do they?

As long as these apps only work when connected to their own network, they are pretty much useless.

As long as I'm a paying customer, and have a valid log-in, they shouldn't care how or where I'm watching.

The more the powers that be in the entertainment industry treat paying customers like criminals, the more they're just going to push us all away, and into alternative solutions. Independent content creators deserve our support and hard earned dollars far more than these racketeers..
