With Fox Sports local channels holding out on renewing Dish Network contracts for a 50% increase in charging, I'm glad to say we finally subscribed to mlb.tv. This is a step toward removing the traditional media and buying programming directly from the source.
There's been a lot of talk on TWiT and related shows recently about disintermediation of the carriers and resellers of TV programming. It would be nice to find the program you want and click on it to buy, say a year's worth of a particular show. You get the shows you want instead of a cable bill.
A lot of things have to happen before we get there, well, at least a few, but I've heard a number of folks say they only watch T'V on the Internet and don't use the traditional sources.
