Re: Innovators

Re: Innovators
@batye I've grown very spoiled with my library. It's within walking distance. But I don't really check out DVDs any more. The past couple of times I've tried, they proved to be damaged and didn't play. So we still use the library primarily the old-fashioned way, checking out books. Stil, I can't help noticing the differences in offerings, including e-books and tablets preloaded with popular books. Perhaps there will be a new IoT category opening up specifically for libraries that encompasses the various forms and media that now pass through a system that once was synonomous with paper books.

Re: Innovators
@batye there's that option, too. And for the really thrifty, it's possible to wait for their local libraries to acquire the discs and check them out from there at no charge. I noticed my library keeps expanding its collection of things beyhond books, and that may just signal a general shift in expectations that redefine what a library is to be.

@Ariella for me I just value my time and I prefer to pay for DVD's for the shows I want to avoid spending time on watching commercials...

Re: Innovators
@batye I can understnad that. Even though people actually look forward to seeing the Super Bowl commercials because a lot of effort goes into those expensive slots, eeryday commercials do tend to be repetitive and dull. That's another reason why people prefer to stream their programs.

Re: Innovators
Why pay TV certainly has lots of opportunity in the developing world, I think it's a different animal in places like the US. People have many devices they can watch on these days, so it's all about choice. TV service providers have to recognize that.
