I ditched my pay tv in favour of faster internet. I'll be going to 17Mbps soon. I usually only watch the news anyway. It's availiable online in so many places, there is a wide varity to choose from. I like how I can pick the stories I want to hear.
I have a tv tuner also, i keep it as a small frameless window in the corner while i work. I havn't used a standard television in months.
I hope the technology improves...
Instead of complaining about piracy, companies should find ways around it. iTunes is a great idea. I buy music and movies from my Internet provider (Telstra -Bigpond) and their put on my phone bill. (which I then pay online-hehe. I hardly have to leave the house).
The only problem I have is that Im limited to 10Gig a month, after that it slows down rapidly. I seem to use more than double that.
