Re: Is "watching" active or passive?
@elizabeth:

I am with you, our household exactly follow similar pattern. We have TV running all the time we are home. It is very funny that my husband falls asleep in the couch some times. When i try turing off the TV he tends to be out of his sleep to switch it on back and would fall asleep again.

Re: We all know this guy
@dcawrey - If only it wouldn't really complicate things to let everyone do what they are most comfortable with. Some customers get a la carte, some get skinny bundles, and others keep the fatty bundles they currently have (and enjoy?) Even the few companies that are trying skinny bundles are apparently not having much success with them. Letting customers experience new products with the ability to go back to the fatty bundles they are accustomed to might go a long way for everyone.

Re: Not that bad....
@troyhiatt I think YouTube is getting people to pay for that! Pretty much the definition of cord cutting if you ask me.

Re: Not that bad....
Now YouTube wants me to pay them for "Orignal Content". Kind of a weird time. I just keep calling Uverse and asking for a lower bill, they keep giving me more channels and lowering the bill. Works for me!

Re: We all know this guy
@elizabethv I would be okay with making up my own bundle from a menu. 

At the same time, it's clear that's not going to be a great option for everyone going forward... some people do like packages!

With all of Netflix's original programming they are basically another TV station themselves

Re: Is "watching" active or passive?
@afwriter, also social media and internet usage has taken up on average 2-5 hours per day of time people use to spend with their family, friends, work, and other activities. I liked it when people were more empathetic and had more patience. Social media makes some people crazy, needy, selfish and cruel - or maybe they were already like that and social media exemplified their behavior. LOL!

Re: Is "watching" active or passive?
@afwriter, Yes they have. When I first created my social media platforms I logged on everyday sometimes multiple times a day. Now I log on about once a week if that. I do not care what someone else is doing, watching, buying, eating, sharing and I am not telling anyone those things about myself. Plus I still like communicating via phone to my friends and family.

@elizabethv, I love your comments. Yes what will happen to those corny shows that come on at 2am or 3am, the infomercials, shopping channels and other shows not worth wathcing. LOL!

Cord Cutting
Continue to cut the cut the cord. Continue to find alternative methods of viewing content. They maybe just maybe the telco companies will realize, hey maybe we should ask the customers what they want. I can dream can't I. LOL!
