Television Revived Online

Television Revived Online

At first it was a conscious decision to remove television from my life. I wanted to free myself from the Viagra, Match.com, and ED commercials. And I no longer wanted the television media telling me what to care about today. Rather I wanted to care about the issues affecting our world today, and not today's Fox News headline, "Bigfoot Trackers Say They've Got a Body." It has been one year since I have owned a television set. I have spent countless hours listening to NPR, reading the Times, clicking on BBC. As time has passed, and after I learned a thing or two about what is real news vs. what is fed to you on TV, I started to have a recurring sense of nostalgia for the clever and absurd comedy shows like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Family Guy. It was time to revive television, but I didn't want to take it to the extreme and have it on all the time. And that's when I turned to TV online. Here is my list for the top online sites to watch TV: Hulu | http://www.hulu.com/ Photobucket FanCast | http://www.fancast.com/ ABC | http://abc.go.com/ MySpace Primetime | http://www.myspace.com/primetime Photobucket NBC | http://www.nbc.com/ TV Land | http://www.tvland.com However, the problem still remained: The "buy this, smell better, and you'll have more friends" advertisements. I wanted to avoid commercials all together. I moved over to iTunes and now I purchase and download single and full season TV shows to watch when I cannot sleep or when I need to "tune out." The benefit of paying for shows vs. free shows - no commercials and zero server load time because the show is downloaded to your harddrive. There you have it. TV revived online.
