YouTube better than TV?

That's the internet age. Cable and satellite are sorely outdated. Same shit all day everyday.

 

Most people only watch for good TV shows now anyways, and you have plenty of options for that.

YouTube sucks on my home computer... Nothing loads... I think it is my ISP throttling it or something.

This is true. Once it becomes as easy as just turning on the TV, cable/satellite will fade fast.

YouTube offers unlimited instant, on-demand viewing and new material every minute.  All you need is an internet conncection and a PC, or laptop, or smartphone, or tablet...

 

It's only a matter of time before cable goes the way of print media.

I go to Youtube for sneezing pandas and have never equated it as a TV replacement.  Other sites that have streaming episodes/movies, sure.  I even use my googletv and appletv to stream those sites to my TV.  But youtube is just a replacement for America's Funniest Videos for me.  Watch it for a few minutes, laugh at dumb stuff, then move on.

I bet a lot of those 18-34 year olds use Youtube as their main source of music too. You can stream just about any song or album on there, for free obviously.

Until the cable and satellite companies get their heads out of their asses, sites like youtube will continue to become more popular. Cable and satellite providers are going to eventually have to change the way they offer tv services. For instance, they need to start letting people order only the programming that they want.

 

My mother has like 200 stations but only watches maybe 5 stations. However, to get those stations she has to buy the expensive package.

 

Youtube and similar places are definitely the future.

As an 18-34 year old, I also go to the huddle instead of reading books.

I watch youtube more than regular tv. I usually always watch it while I'm at the gym doing cardio, writing the paper, or doing something else mundane. You can't see shit like this on cable television anyways
