Thanks for the post from Rashad Townsend
I loved the option of watching my favorite television shows on my computer if I missed them one week. I had opted to get cable when I signed up on www.EXPERTSATELLITE.com but didn’t have any means of recording my shows yet. However, some networks didn’t make all of the episodes of a series available online. I was usually able to watch anything on one of the basic networks like ABC, NBS, CBS, or FOX, but with cable networks like Bravo or HGTV, I never knew what was going to be available. As much as I hate to admit it, one of my favorite guilty pleasures is The Real Housewives of New Jersey. They tend to skip over three or four episodes and post several in a row. Luckily, it doesn’t take a whole lot of intelligence to fill in the gaps, so I can usually figure out the overall idea of what I missed. Let’s be honest, these shows aren’t exactly known for their complicated story lines. HGTV shows are much easier to pick and choose because their shows tend to be individual episodes instead of a plot and characters that you need to keep up with.
Let’s face it. All TV shows are going to the Internet, whether people like it or not. Just last month, “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” ended their runs on regular television, and will soon be returning to production exclusively on the Internet. It wouldn’t surprise me if you find the Super Bowl or other big name events online in the coming years.
