I''ll be watching it on my television set. The method of transmission seems pretty irrelevant to me. Certainly in this day and age.

I'll be watching it in my Holodeck with an Oculus Rift strapped to my head.

Back in the eighties I used to watch my ZX Spectrum on television.

For me, the definition of television is a combination of recieving device and broadcast medium. A static box or panel in a corner of a room whose primary purpose is to receive and display linear transmissions, either through terrestrial, satellite, or cable means. I don't count on-demand as television. It's another form of video, time-shifting for want of another word. It's like news. I can buy a newspaper from a newsagent, or I can read it on my tablet device. That doesn't make the tablet a newspaper.

You're splitting hairs. It's a TV show, the device you watch it on is irrelevant. Especially if you still watch it on a TV.

What has that got to do with it?

Are you still living in the 50s or something? The definition of TV, media, etc and how we consume it has changed now. You need to catch up.

I'm guessing the other 175 posts of his are equally as bizarre.

It's an evolution of the "program" is revived. From aerial to dish / cable to phone line

What would you count Bt vision as who send various standard channels via an Internet connection ? How is time shifting any different from slotting in a vhs and pressing record ?

I don't mind the license fee I'm happy to pay it to keep the BBC. Even if I rarely watch or listen to their channels.

I'm also happy to pay for Netflix given the quality of their shows. As I do for some Sky channels.

Not watching a show you want see just because it's only available via streaming just seems odd.

Unless it's a monetary issue. In which case fair enough.

It isn't, it's down to some meaningless technical definition which is irrelevant to 99% of the population nowadays.

Because 99% of the population get a broadband service good enough for reliable, stable, uninterrupted high definition streaming? True. Totally meaningless...

You only need a few Meg of download speed to stream in HD never mind SD so yes I'd say so.

I can't remember the name of those things where you look inside and turn a handle to see a person moving like a flickerbook
