Goodbye TV, Hello Broadband

Article in Wired. I've been thinking about doing this for the past few days. The Wire has only 1 season left. Jericho was cut by CBS (which apparently stands for "Cut the Best Shows"). Sopranos has only 1 season left. Battlestar is still around, but I can always get that on iTunes. I'd also get a chance to tell Cox to take a hike. If they misbehave, I can switch broadband providers (something I can't do with cable).

Anybody done this or thought of this recently??? I'd love to hear what you think.

A couple of random articles:
They're coming back! New Orleans criminals returning from Houston.

Unlikely allies in the fight to secure our borders. In a nutshell, the only think stopping Al Qaeda from bringing in the bomb is the drug cartels.

Saving Dartmouth. If you want to save Tulane from CORRUPTION (let's call it what it is, folks), this is how you do it.

From reading the article, it sounds like the technology would have to be much further along for broadband TV to become a more concrete reality and thus a more viable alternative.

I suggest you get cracking...

netflix is a great source for movies and tv content.
no late fees and most titles ship out of baton rouge
i.e. quick turn around.
