Re: Is broadcast television dead? Google announces Chromecast

Is network television dead? What is killing their ability to compete? Is it just as simple as FCC regulations or are their deeper and more profound problems with the format?
There's nothing to watch! The sitcoms are geared towards idiots, the crime shows are all clones of each other (and too graphic!), and the reality shows got old long ago.

I hardly ever watch TV. I get my news online, I watch movies and classic TV shows from my own DVD collection and stream online from many free sites.

Google just made getting the Internet on your TV much easier and much cheaper.
Google on Wednesday announced Chromecast, a $35 HDMI stick that streams web video to an HDTV. Chromecast will stream TV shows, movies and music, and anything in a Chrome browser, to your TV. It works with smartphones, tablets and PCs.
Is that a one time cost? No monthly cost? There's so much I can stream for free, I'm not sure there would be any advantage to it.
