What is the definition of the free world? Being free to live our lives the way we want to, right? Then why are we all blind to this life of semi slavery we’ve been sucked into? what slavery? television!
What is slavery? Someone telling someone else what to do and when to do it right? just like TV! Don’t get me wrong, I love television, everything from “The Big Bang Theory” to “Nikita” from networks like TNT, CBS, ABC, The CW, etc. But what I don’t like is that they have a schedule, they tell you when to watch which show, how long you can watch it for and the only times you can watch it, so it’s not convenient to you, but convenient to them! Yup, you know it, I know it, Dora the explorer knows it! I love the shows that cable television puts out and I know I would be a completely different person without tv in my life, but I truly hate the system!
When you come to think about it, it’s a bunch of corporate fools puppeting us around for their entertainment, making us think it’s for our entertainment, making us the true fools. Which is why I have opened my eyes to the truth and have decided to cut the cord! Not physically of course because my family still needs the tv, but I have decided to be no part of this cable tv thing. Now there are a couple of options to go with here, theres the subscription based tv streaming thing like amazon instant video, netflix, BBC iPlayer etc. then there’s the pay for downloading thing like buying tv shows on iTunes (yuck, I know), there’s illegally downloading pirated shows, which is the only option for people living in a country such as mine considering they don’t show most shows on tv and theres no subscription based television, you could buy DVD’s (original ofcourse) or you could watch just web based shows like Film Riot or TechnoBuffalo 0n Revision3 or similar online networks.
What I like about these options is that you can watch whenever you want, it suits your schedule and you’re free to play and pause whenever you want!
