I have had a PC (Mac) in my living room (and Kitchen) for years. In fact, my sole form of media entertainment for five years of my life was solely Internet (I was boycotting cable :) ).
But that is me. I am a technophile, counter culture junkie or just plain different but whatever the reason my media consumption habits do not mirror those of the masses.
A recent article in the Times added to my growing excitement for the day when one box will house all. Netflix, mainstream movie-by mail rental business is making a move to streaming video. That is right, STREAMING, no downloading :)
I have had very bad experiences with Netflix in the past. I would say 20% of DVD’s sent to my house were scratched but I guess that is to be expected.
I think it is time to re think my relationship with the service that just may help redefine the way we watch movies.
