so you get the upside of free and picking what you want to watch and when -- but you get the downside of unskipable commercials?
There's not much I'm willing to sit through commercials to watch.
We have a Netflix subscription. There's one or two out-of-market shows I BT. Maybe some content on Youtube or Tudou.
I've got a slingbox sitting out there on someone else's cable TV connection. Even thought it's free for me to use, the commercials made it not worth it.
If cable TV was still ad-free, I might well subscribe. But the industry discovered that we would pay for it AND sit through ads.
I think that says something important about us.
