I have to agree with you here as well. Just like the days of the
laminated plastic disc are numbered, so is content coming down a coax
cable or via satellite. It probably won't be as soon as 2010, but I
would venture to guess it won't be that much longer until one could
get by with a fast internet connection and have more than enough
content to watch.
