Well, I haven't had time to blog this (hopefully I'll share some photos at some point), but we finally "broke down" and decided to update our TV to a 21st century model -- in spite of the fact that we most definitely do NOT watch TV!
Occasionally, however, I enjoy watching some live broadcast stuff, so we bought a leaf antenna and I'm excited that I finally can watch SNL, the Oscars and other stuff like that. Last year was the first in many years in which I was unable to watch the Academy Awards & I felt frustrated and out of he loop 'cause I couldn't watch online! I also think that it's useful to be able to watch he local news as well, on e in a while.
We don't watch TV (with a few exceptions), but we do enjoy watching films once in a while, so I went back to Netflix, hoping that maybe its streaming service would be better and also signed up for Amazon Prime, for the shipping and hoping they'd have some good stuff streaming for free.
Boy was I wrong!!!! Both services are virtually useless!!! My Netflix queue that had hundreds of titles was now reduced to a pitiful selection of films I didn't want to see and Amazon offers are equally paltry.
So... We bought a great quality TV, but unless I we buy he Blu-ray Disc or wait for days until a disc arrives in the mail from Netflix (costing 8 bucks a month EXTRA now) or pay from 4-6 dollars one more per feature to stream it through Amazon, we can't watch anything we want to watch!! And I'm really mad about that!!! Hollywood is evil, they want to make as much money as possible. :-(. [insert big pout here!]
All I wanted last week was to see Love Actually again!! :-(
What do I do??? I miss video rental stores!! They had an awesome one in Amherst that had a 5 DVDs/5 days/5 dollars deal that was awesome! I can't believe that I bought a new TV a month ago and I haven't seen one single film in it because of his "situation."
21st century my foot!!!
