It is a travesty of culture that non-linear TV programming is still a luxury item in America. A hard-working, ordinary American should be able to come home at whatever time, dial up programming options and select what they want to see. This is already readily available on the internet at various video clip sites. But the ordinary American who can’t afford internet or digital cable should not have to live their life around some TV schedule dreamed up by idiots who have no redeeming contribution to society other than, once in a very great while, allowing some inkling of culture to emerge from the little box sitting in our living rooms that they have control over. No longer. Put programming in the hands of the consumer at no cost. Make consumers become active rather than passive consumers of content. That is the future. Make it happen now.
