Re: Cut the cord...
Why is everyone saying a TV is one way? That is not true anymore. All of them now (except maybe the really cheap ones) have web browsers and apps and you can attach a $35 computer (got to get on the waiting list for the next batch out though) to it and your TV is no longer a passive watchum thingy. Plus, for years now in many areas you can order pizza and other food over your TV. That is not "passive".

said by Mele20:I speak for myself, so the others who have taken that position can answer what they like. I don't have any problem with the flat piece of plastic and metal that people call a television. It can be one-way or two-way, but that has nothing to do with what we're talking about here. When you turn the plastic and metal into an interactive device, it's just a screen/audio producer with internet access, like many computers. There's no necessary cable bill to pay, no piped in programming to watch, etc. What I mean by TV is the programming sent from a sender to a receiver. When the television is connected to the internet, it's not TV anymore, it's the internet, or an intranet, or whatever, accessed through a device called a television.
