I've never heard of any bandwidth caps in the US (or anywhere, until this thread). My provider is wireless in our community, but I have the deluxe
package of cable, and so have more TV than I can watch.
Frankly, the DVR in my cable box has functionally given me "video on demand." I've still got Timeline, a science ficiton film, from OCTOBER
on my list of things to watch.
That, and about 4 episodes of Engineering an Empire and about 6 of Digging for the Truth. Plus every Duck Dodgers in the 24th and a
1/2 Century and Some DOOL episodes the lady of the manor hasn't watched yet.
My cable is pretty cool. We used to get internet from them, too; but I have a friend in the wireless company, and he hooked me up for nearly free.
I've heard some people gripe about cable internet, that too many people on the same wire slows it all down. But I never had any trouble with it.
To tell the truth, my real problem is that I don't watch much TV. I have stuff recorded from 5 months ago, that I cannot force myself to watch. So,
no, a third generation "tv revolution" doesn't mean a lot for me.
What will this do for global TV? I'm wondering, because French TV used to have porn on after a certain hour of the night, broadcast. I'm trying to
think the time difference would make it available in the central US at about oh, 3 in the afternoon.
