• I'll have to reread the Wells' classic

    I did not consider the features of invisibility from this point of view. Herbert Wells made it clear that this is not an advantage, but a big problem for the owner. In the case of "peeping" with the help of the TV show, the problems are even greater, and the pleasure is generally questionable. IMHO.

    I'll have to reread the Wells' classic.

    I promised myself several times that I would stop watching the BB tv show, but the contests and puzzles they would come up with drew me back in.

    It is difficult for me to reason on this topic. I haven't watched TV at all for about 25 years or more. About the same period of time, I do not even own it.

    Tv for me is basically still free I have an external VHF antenna and over the air analog is still available for 2 channels in my vicinity.

    Many TV networks in North America offer viewing their programming with "apps" to accommodate tablet/smartphone users. Do you have something similar in Crimea? Don't you watch plenty of shows or videos from the computer?

    Yes. We have many opportunities to watch IP TV using a computer, tablet, phone or iron. ;)
    No. I still don't watch it.
    Of course I watch films, but it happens differently. Usually I just download the movie that interests me.

    Quoting is odd but I'm coming in late to the conversation.

    BTW, not too worried about 'real names' in this echo but others
    may be problematic on it.

    Do you normally only check/reply to messages every 2 months or so?
