So much for the view from 30,000 feet. From where I am sitting it looks like Social Media and Internet TV should be turning the broadcast and cable world on its ear.
Take control of your life by viewing what you want when you want. Find your favorite shows online and enjoy having unlimited online channels and viewing opportunities. Your Cable Provider licenses and sells its programs and content. This makes the selection limited because of this bias. You can move your Internet Connection to the TV and take advantage of a larger, less expensive free market. If you cut the cord from your cable provider you will be in charge of when and where you would like to watch your favorite programs.
Do some online research, that’s what I did:
Roku.com get internet on your TV.
Chromecast Play your tablets and smartphones on your TV.
Subscribe or order TV SHOWS and MOVIES from NETFLIX, AMAZON, ITUNES and HULU.
Find FREE SHOWS! Go to the shows website or Network/Producers Website. YouTube has a free TV Show section.
