I switched over to simply watching what is available via the internet (Netflix and Hulu primarily). I don't miss "network" TV. Mostly the reason I switched is they just charge too much for Cable TV service and then pound me with so many commercials that I end up feeling like I was watching more commercials than show. About the only way I could really put up with it was to DVR all the shows I wanted to watch then fast forward/skip through the commercials.
I think eventually most network TV will be available via the internet, but in the meanwhile the cable networks and providers are going to fight tooth and nail to keep their fat profits rather than adapt to a changing time.
Adapt or die people its that simple
WOOOOOooo.... Wait Fox as a whole??
Cause Aereo is expanding to Cali this year...
I have no use for Fox at all..Terrible news coverage..shows that were funny the first year or so they ran..If you're still watching the Simpsons after all these years? Nevermind, I need not say more.
I wish Aereo ALL the luck in the world!!! Great idea that should be one standard around the world. Fox/clear channel need to get with the times, stop holding on to deals with standard networks, and look to future and modern ways to make money instead of sticking with an archaic system that doesn't benefit paying customers.
Pretty interesting. I agree with Johnny3D in that at some point the TV networks will start putting the news and other stuff on the internet. Most of them have it where you can watch their TV shows off their website which is not perfect but its a start. Its gonna come sooner or later with the way people are ditching paid TV services. If my TV service wasn't at a fairly good discount I wouldn't have it. Then again with Google Fiber going to Austin I can only hope they make their way to Dallas and into my house eventually.

The thing about it is basically this the adapt or die which is true and we have evidence through music and it's industry. They did and said basically the same thing for several years until it finally sunk in that if they did not adapt they would just end. Then they adapted which TV will basically have to as well. I just know it is going to be different because advertising and television right now make so much money it is beyond the reality plus it is really owned by a very small group of individuals like Rupert Murdoch.
One thing as well that is coming out of left field is Google. There doing another fiber optic network here in a suburb of Atlanta as well as completely in Austin Texas. Intel is also messing around with some things from what I understand. It will take mega players like these to beat out the empire's of Comcast, Time Warner, and Fox etc really. Either way it seems to be happening no matter how slowly as we speak .
as long as i can get this service for free and then turn off the ads the steamer wants to feed me to pay for the service I'm fine.
This is a good site, but the lack of journalistic integrity is frustrating. Headlines that don't match the facts in the article undermine the credibility of your site, as does editorializing in the place of reporting. I don't mean to sound harsh here, I like your site and I want it to be better.
Your headline is not borne out by the content of your article. Your headline "FOX Says It'll Leave Network TV" is very definite. But in the body of the article it turns into FOX merely "considering" leaving, which is not the same at all. And how about a quote of what FOX said, instead of just your interpretation?
You guys choose interesting topics to report on, and you cover some stories the big guys miss. Well done! If only you would adhere to the basic tenets of journalism you could elevate this site to the next level.
It looks like CBS wants to do the same.
Funny thing about Aereo, when they first started being in NYC I signed up only to find that I had no devices they supported. Move ahead a year and a half and I have multiple devices they support but they want to charge me $$$ saying my trial that I was unable to use is up. I thought they only charged for DVR service or if you wanted to watch more than 1 hour a day.
