Redbox followup

Alert reader Tony wrote, "I don't have cable, but I do have Internet, Netflix streaming, and Hulu Plus. The only Netflix DVDs I get are ones that aren't available on streaming. Its cheaper and more convenient than HD cable and a DVR."

Back in the day when cable arrived, it was a big jump from antenna.  But in most areas, cable companies had a monopoly and viewers didn't have choices.  What Tony described above is a great example of someone building their own service based on what they watch.

For the sports junkies, HD sports may be a must.  Others watch more TV shows, while some folks watch mostly movies.  These days you have more control and the ability to customize, and that's cool.

Thanks for the comment, Tony!
