I"m always surprised that people think 2-3 bucks for a tv show is a lot considering that most people spend more than that on coffee or fast food in a day
It's a lot if you've got 5-10 shows you watch regularly every week. You need to weigh the cost against what you'd pay for cable or sat.
If you watch 5-10 shows per week, then it sounds like you need cable anyway.. you're a real TV watcher if there's 10 shows a week to watch, imho.
If someone has 2 or 3 shows they need to pay for, at $2 per episode, it's $6 a week or $24 a month. Even if you watched 5 shows a week ($40) or 10 shows a week ($80), that's still cheaper than many people pay for cable (mine's around $90 plus internet), and the bonus is once you buy a show, you can watch it whenever you want (pretty much), for as long as you want.
With cable, unless you save something long-term to your DVR, you only pay to see it once. I can go back and watch Lost all I want because it's on Netflix, or I can buy it on Amazon if I really want to.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.
