I am so tired of these stupid political ads. With the DVR I can either record the show or back it up or pause and fast forward to skip through all the political ads.
Haven't they figured it out yet that claiming that someone is bad and I'm good is not going to get the regular person's vote - only the L.I.V. will listen to their ads and say "Oh my, I don't like _____ because he's baaaad!"
Can't the politician just state what the problem is and how they plan on dealing with it. They could even give a recounting of their previous political successes and failures.
I'll be so glad when this round of crap is over. But then we have the run offs and then the regular election in November.
I foresee that all these networks will eventually start charging for their shows to be seen on the internet. They are getting everyone use to it now and a few years down the line will block everything except for those who pay. Look at what Hulu and YouTube has done. Use to be both were totally free, now both have tiered levels. Yes, you can still see stuff for free, but with Hulu you have to have a membership with a credit card attached to even open an account and if you want to see certain things it costs. With YouTube you can still have a free account, but some of the stuff is pay to see.
I'm guessing 2-3 years, but it for sure will happen.
So, you have Amazon Prime? I haven't sprung for that yet. Keep thinking about it, but haven't.
Our internet connection sucks. We have CenturyLink and they are as slow as molasses at times. We tried Suddenlink but they suck more. Here in Forest Cove our options for internet is limited...can't even get Comcast or ATT.
Anytime I try to watch a simple YouTube I have to let it load first, then play. I did try to download one of the Downton Abby episodes and it took over an hour to download. So watching online is not a good option without downloading the night before.
Did I tell you that CenturyLink and Suddenlink suck????????????? THEY SUCK!!!!!!!!!
We have Amazon Prime but mainly for the delivery of stuff, less for the tv.
Aereo is $8 or $9 a month and it is just like having rabbit ears tv. You get everything local as if you didn't have cable. You can watch live or DVR it. The perk is that you get 20 hours of DVR. You can buy additional DVR space but we don't. The downside is that you have to use it on a device like phone, tablet, laptop, etc. We have been doing that forever anyways and just stream our laptop to the tv and watch it like that. Hope that makes sense.
