i'm watching the collapse of Cable TV in real time, lol.

I realize most of you probably don't have Cable anymore, but as someone who gets it for free and generally doesn't spend money on streaming services it is incredible how just this year especially the whole thing is coming undone.

Outside of maybe network channels, all the other mainstay big channels like AMC, TNT , FX etc that actually had original series have basically stopped picking up almost anything. At most they will show a teaser of one episode of something that is on their streaming service.

I just looked up if Snowpiercer was coing back to Tnt for another season and apparently its finished but they pulled it from Cable to shop it elsewhere. It was literally their LAST scripted series.
done.

I've seen it coming for 5 years or more, but its official.
time of death 2023.
RIP channel surfing.

Dang yeah I usually only watch NBA on TNT or ESPN these days but that's through my moms cable account ha. Can't even get local nuggets game on local channels you need to pay extra for altitude network. 
Honestly Netflix is starting to decline these days. Series arent what they used to be and getting sick of all these documentaries on random social media celebs. 
Last of Us series starts tonight tho!

yeah im excited for LAst of US. Gonna wait til all the eps are out and binge hbo stuff ive missed for a month.

the Cable situation just sucks mostly for my folks.
I wish i had the cash to buy them new tvs and set up subs for streaming and the whole nine, but its just so annoying that they pay $100 for cable that literally has a fraction of the content it did ten years ago.
It's just too much hassle for them to do on their own at their age, and not wanting to change their watching habbits to tailor streaming services etc.

...NOTHING apparently since Disney's got Spectrum's balls in a vice.
Lost like a dozen channels.

I mean ripping ESPN away right before football season.. man, Disney really ready to put a stake in Cable's heart.
This has so many implications.

bruh, ive had it plenty of times.
in fact theres nothing new to watch for me atm except the first ep of house of dragon.
was hoping euporhias new season was up but no dice.

i also own every single season of wire and GoT ... as long as sony keeps their damn video servers up which they dont maintain anymore.

im just binging tv stuff on every platform i can atm b/c i cant really play games right now that much, but im tryin to save what energy i got for the ff expac next week.

House of the Dragon is dope, loved last season and I think this one is set up to be even better.

If you want a comedy, Hacks is pretty good and just wrapped its third season. 

Also, Slim you would probably dig Winning Time if you haven't seen it, about Magic's first couple seasons with the Lakers. Fairly fictionalized, but decent.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

I 2nd the Hacks rec, really witty with a lot of relevant, current humor done expertly

Not bad ending to series tbh.
