Re: No hope for TV anymore?

I think TV will die around the time radio does, which is probably not going to be very soon. It serves a very specific purpose. For the most part, it fulfills the role of the familiar, which is comfortable. We like to put it on and watch the reruns sometimes. Much like radio; sure you'll hear Bohemian Rhapsody for the 5000th time, but it fills a need that listening to the latest albums doesn't. You sit back and listen to a song you've heard before in your car (or even online, hint).

TV isn't going anywhere anyway since it provides a flood of new content at a reasonable price. When Netflix reaches the point where it can produce all its own content and draw subscribers away from cable, then it might have a chance to completely overthrow TV.
