A wireless computer stands where the TV once was. Gone are the cable box, DVR, DVD, AM/FM radio tuner, and multi-CD player. "The extra shelf space is nice," comments Krista, co-founder of Spreety.com, "plus I enjoy home videos, photo slideshows, and e-mails from the comfort of my couch."
What started in 2007 a way to save money by replacing cable TV pleasantly turned into an enhanced entertainment experience. During the next year, most of the major networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CW, MTV, etc.) decided to publish their shows online. The message is that anytime, anywhere is the future of entertainment.
For kids shows, Nick Jr., Cartoon Network, and Disney provide more than enough Dora, SpongeBob, and Mickey to suite any little one's tastes. For Showtime and HBO, episodes are available on iTunes for $1.99. For classic shows, there are Scooby-Doo, Bewitched, Gilligan's Island, and hundreds of others.
Beyond shows, MSNBC, CNN, C-SPAN, ABC, etc. provide live news coverage. For sports, MLB, NHL, and the NBA have live games online for a nominal price. Sunday night NFL is free, as well NCAA football, basketball, NASCAR, and much more.
"There's more than anyone can watch," explains Ron, co-founder of Spreety.
So how does one find the great places to watch online? Spreety's Guide to Watch TV Shows Online was invented for just that purpose, and is the first couch friendly guide for online TV.
Judging by the many people who have visited the Spreety site, it may be the beginning of a new trend. Will your next TV be a PC?
