Television has been a mainstay of American life since the late 1950s, but nothing lasts forever and one CEO of a major cable company is hinting that the end of TV could come sooner than we think.

Only complete morons who buy the sh*t being fed to them 24/7, would sit still and gawk at this weak crap hour after hour.
The Internet buried TV long ago...
But for those drolling in cups, it's cool.
Americans still want their video entertainment but they don’t want 20 min of commercials per hour. I only watch TV for local news and weather and I don’t have cable. Dropped it when it went above $50 a month.
I would be more than happy to pay per view over the Internet.
All I have is internet on my phone and my little ten inch net book.
We had a television from January of ninety through March of ninety five.
We are a family of book people.
I would rather have classic radio back than have cable TV.
One CEO said this ??? WoW. Headline stuff.
I guess I can expect my Verizon FIOS to go black any time now.
You’ll see the FCC roll out it’s program to buy out over-the-air TV broadcast licenses in 2014. As stations go dark and become cable-and-webcasters, this spectrum will be auctioned off to Google, AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and others who want it for wireless internet service.
It will be the end of an era, but the buyout money will at least partially compensate station licensees for the cash they had to invest in converting from analog to digital broadcasting a couple of years ago as mandated by the FCC.
Ok I have a question. My Comcast cable is now above 60 bucks. If I were to cut my service where can I able to view shows I like for example: Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, and I do enjoy watching HGTV? Now would I be able to view my shows like TWD on the same day or the day after?
Comcast is pulling a fast one with this “remote access” service. So not happy with them.
I mean live.
I miss the good old days when I got my news from shortwave radio.
Nothing much left now, except for the religious stations.
Nowadays you are lucky if they broadcast the baseball game on radio.
I hear ya brother.
old time radio
I had the same idea
Now radio is just canned crap, the same set list from sea to shining sea.
Even Talk radio is getting boring. AWW is one of the only real radio shows left
