Reason people are still paying for Cable/Satellite is thanks to crappy monopolization of the digital media spectrum, digital rights and copyright system.

It's time these giants wake up and move to an Internet like platform.

Half are commercial. Search for (Acura) RDX and see how many dealership commerical comes up. There are many good clips on the internet but 95% of all Youtube video are pure crap that should be deleted after 6 months or something.

The majority of those uploads are just pure shit people upload about utterly useless content that has nothing to do with anything.

Nice illustration of the information overload: If you watch YouTube videos nonstop without sleep or bathroom breaks, you still miss out on almost 4 years of material every 24 hours.

Which is why you need crowdsourcing, recommendations and whatnot just in order to find the relatively few videos you might be interested in watching, you don't stand a chance finding them on your own.

TV does make it easier: The number of possible choices aren't quite that overwhelming, you already have a fair idea of whether you would like Disney or Discovery Channel, and you know where to find the next episode of Lost or The Daily Show.

I don't think YouTube will outcompete cable TV. But chat, Facebook and Hulu might.

youtube is no different from the web or TV. I'm not interested in 99% of what's on any of them. I love youtube because it's allowed me to see things that don't get on TV, RC flying, close harmony vocal jazz, motorcycle skill videos, Hilary Hahn, Jeff Dunham, Connie Talbot, Sungha Jung, Narciso Yepes and on it goes. I'll probably watch TV again the next time somebody lands on the moon.

[citation][nom]maigo[/nom]And some of it is in 1080p, why you need that resolution to watch some kid swing a stick in his yard, I'll never know[/citation]

Why would anyone want to watch some kid swing a stick in his yard at any resolution?
