There just might be a day in the future where all of our media needs are met through streaming. Think about it how many CDs you actually use, or DVDs you actually watch? If you're like most of us, not too many. Most of the time we are streaming things directly to our televisions and stereos and our tablets. The way we engage with media is changing very fast. With services like Netfilx, XM radio, and Amazon Prime, we can feel a little more confident cleaning out our cabinets and shelves from all of those dust covered CD cases DVD cases and soon maybe even that cable box.
Yes, that cable Box. Many people are finding that cable bills are growing faster than their paychecks and let's face it most of us are busier then ever before. This means we can watch our shows when they're on, we have to record them and watch them later. And sometimes we want to blow a whole weekend and binge watch an entire season of a show everyone has been talking about and we never had the time to see. Sure, there is the ubiquitous DVR, which most cable companies offer, at a fee, a monthly fee (check out your bill sometime), but even they have their short comings. Limited space, limited ability to record multiple shows at once, and sometimes they glitch and we miss a coveted show, never a great moment.
