I was away for work last week and at some point each night, while trying to relax before sleep, I’d turn on the TV in my hotel room.  I’d spend a good 15 to 30 minutes surfing around trying to find anything that was remotely interesting to me, and I’d maybe end up with something that seemed better than staring at the wall.  And then, the commercials.  Holy crap.  I know it isn’t quite this bad, but it sure felt like there were more commercials than content.

I realize that many people have a PVR and can skip the commercials, but still, what a pain.

It’s been maybe 4 or 5 years since I last had cable TV, and I forgot just how bad it was.  I’m spoiled with services like Netflix, iTunes, etc.  I cannot see myself ever again being willing to pay $100+/month for the privilege of watching all those commercials.  It sucks, is inconvenient, and feels like a very old concept.
