Re: a la carte programming - TV

^ I think the trend away from multi-channel cable packages will certainly have an impact on people's watching habits. I know that when I cancelled my subscription to cable, my TV watching became much more deliberate. I found out about shows that might interest me through word of mouth or advertising, and made a point of seeking them out. I no longer spent time floating through dozens of channels full of worthless programming looking for something interesting to watch. Instead, now I watch what I want when I want, and spend the rest of my time on other pursuits.

Overall, it's been an extremely positive change.
