The problem with flat out ditching tv, is the free online offerings are weak even Hulu. I just work Comcast every 6 months for the new promo rate.

I was never a huge tv watcher, unless I'm powering thru a series on DVD . Youtube doesn't interest me much. I've viewed a couple things there but most of it is shoddy and it seems made for people which short attention spans. I do appreciate some of the "how to" videos and totally disassembled and reassembled my vacuum cleaner by following a youtube vid... but it's not like watching quality entertainment or anything.

The youtubes I've seen are pretty yawn-iferous.
I watch less tv because of tv.

From after college graduation to moving in with my GF recently, I had no TV.. Youtube also happened to debut the year I graduated from college and I was hooked right I discovered it.

I am watching less tv, but, not because of youtube. Is there a youtube program available? How do you know what to watch on youtube?

I watch a lot on youtube. Especially old shows like the Honeymooners and All In The Family. Many don't even have a commercial in the beginning.

i don't think i've seriously watched television since i was ten. when i was younger, i liked a lot of foreign shows and the tv never satisfied that. netflix, hulu with the help of proxies here in canada, cracked, and other sites have pretty much become my sources for watching shows. i never watch shows on youtube but i see there's a growing television community on there, i guess "television length" would be more accurate, and it seems promising so i will definitely have to check that out! but youtube is my source for music videos and bloggers, that's really it.

personally, the internet killed cable a while ago, but if there's anything i believe it's just now people are realizing how much more convenient the internet is as opposed to television.

YouTube now has almost as much ads/commercials as TV does. It's ridiculous.

I'm watching less TV than I used to because I only have basic cable now. But thanks to a family member I can use HBOGo for HBO and Cinemax shows. That's pretty much what my TV watching time has been replaced with, not YouTube.

But can't you skip through those ads?
