It saved me from having to purchase three new Blu-Ray/DVD Players (or other hardware), so I can have Pandora in other rooms of my house.
THIS WAY OF THINKING is dangerous because having physical copies is the ONLY WAY to go, Services can go out of business, raise rates or content is removed and/or never added.
Which leaves the consumer out of lock with no options and money wasted, but this misinformed person is the norm these days like all providers do not want people owning copies they are slowly by direct and indirect way to digital distribution.
And with tv providers lacking having all channels and even if did they do not have all the shows people like (older than 1995 and if do they are heavily edited) same with digital distribution.
Lack of content and edited also + low quality (blu-ray and dvd has better quality) and the individual has control over what they watch and when.
This is the same deranged reason they will not allow Set Top Blu-Ray recorders in this country.
Of course the poster I am quoting thinks Chuck is a good show, shows his complete lack of sense as that show with 99.9% of today's show stink - reality and/or scripted.
DirecTV DISH and all providers (channels included_ have gone to showing nothing but 4or5 shows on 1 channels most days and have no real lineups left and VOD (all providers) is a joke cause it has only 1/100th of 1% of all shows ever made.
This company (and all others want) to slowly destroy choice of what we can watch on our terms with only owned equipment in our own hones with no need to connect to the internet.
Eventually only the elitist will own blu-rays and dvd's and be able to watch them, if you think I am full of crap look at all the other things everyday people had access to but no longer do.
Cars made solidly (do not crunch like a pop can) this is by older cars that they can afford (30s through 70s)
Meat that is not a chemical filled mess - they have pushed up the price to clean meat and years ago every regular person would be able to buy
and the list goes on and on .......
