Heartofice Posted February 10 Share Posted February 10 1 minute ago, Rhom said: I always said that I watched more TV when I had four channels than I do with essentially limitless content. Would I have watched Night Court and Cheers at 10 years of age if I'd had all of today's options? Reruns of Barney Miller at ten o'clock? Heck no. In contrast, now I will spend ten to fifteen minutes flipping through things before giving up and just sticking it on HGTV or a random basketball game. That is very true. Now that there is so much choice I am much less inclined to watch anything just to have it on in the background or put up with something that is merely 'ok'. Back in the 4 channel days I would watch hours of tv, and much of it was utter shit. I now can't understand why I would want to watch a 30 minute unfunny sitcom any more, but there were a lot of them! I am much more likely to just get lost skipping through youtube than turning on the tv. I guess younger people are doing the same with stuff like TikTok. Either way, there is so much mediocre garbage on Netflix. I'd be interested in seeing if there are many people watching any of it, or is there a huge swing where most people watch a tiny percentage of the content.
