I believe the point is that the on-demand type of services and information overload will be widely accepted by the masses. Right now you're in a small segment of the population and, this is the important part, corporate America hasn't charged you enough for what you're receiving. The whole point is that companies want to bring this to the masses and make money off of it.
On a side note, you should try taking the television out of your bedroom. I did this and I find it is a much healthier lifestyle. You might find you don't need the television in the house at all.
