Well, online videos ARE eating up TV time. At least, I’ve stopped watching TV personally about 2 months ago.
Personally, TV is so whacked with commercials and I don’t want to end up
as another biased TV couch-potato. Well, I didn’t understand this concept
that TV is bad for you when my high school English teacher told me over 10
years ago, but now I do.
Anyways, it is great that now you can simply type
some words and get the show you want on youtube, google, revver, spikedhumor,
revver, metacafe, msn, yahoo, and so many other sites that are popping up everyday.
You can check out javimoya, which allows you to save movies from youtube, google, and alike
to your PC or ipod.
A new survey conducted for the BBC suggests that the phenomenal rise in popularity of online video is eroding the amount of time people spend watching tradition TV. Of 2,070 people surveyed by ICM, 43% of those who watch online video on a PC or mobile device at least once a week say they watch less TV as a result. However, only 9% of the population currently watch online video regularly.
