Modern Age

Technology will tell you that newer and modern is better. We now live in a world of digital and android and iPhone and other devices. For years we had on air broadcast albeit analog signals for TV. With a good antenna or even rabbit ears could watch those channels for free. Sometimes the picture was good and sometimes not. But it was free. Then digital age walks in and says analog signals won’t do and they switched to digital and turned the analog ones off. It made the older TVs useless. You now needed either a digital box with a digital tuner hooked to your TV using an antenna or Satellite dish for even basic channels. And the satellite TV at a cost. Suddenly you have to pay for even basic channels. Then came Android devices and smart phones and homes with high speed Internet and wifi. From that came the Android boxes which gives the user the ability  to combine a digital tuner with the ability through the box to turn any TV into a smart TV. And the cable companies and the telecommunications companies are upset about that and their so called loss of their business. It is not the boxes that has caused the number of their subscribers to decline. No it is their pricing and the emergence of the digital age that is the cause of their demise. It is too high. Satellite TV and cable both. You get better value and entertainment from Netflix and Vimeo and YouTube than any Satellite TV or cable service. These companies have more money than most corporations yet they are upset about their loss of revenue. As for so called illegal signals people will find a way regardless of an Android box. And if too it is for personal use how is streaming any content illegal? Cable TV and telecommunications companies need to get a grip on reality.
