Is Too Much Internet Advertising a Bad Thing?

Raise your hand if you find yourself streaming episodes rather than watching them through your cable. (Dare I say.. the old-fashioned way?) Networks find themselves trying to cut in on some of those advertising dollars by running ads on every blog known to man- but is it a case of too little too late? Some Internet companies such as Hulu, Joost and have set themselves up in a somewhat better spot, but what does the loss of money mean for LOST and other of your favorite shows?

    To me, the ideal way to watch would be on DVD. Then, you can watch a whole season fairly quickly with no advertisements. But I have trouble waiting that long…I go nuts waiting from one week to the next for the new episode of LOST! It’s like I need my fix! I am glad to know that if my DVR quits from a power outage, or if for some reason I missed something I wanted to see, I can usually find my shows online. World sure has changed from when I was a kid!

      I know what you mean. I get soooooo irked when my DVR conks out on me. I’ll admit to streaming episodes that I might have missed along the way. I think it’s more convenient.
