I want to enjoy television, but all of this walled garden crap has to end. There are more content providers producing original content which require me to subscribe to multiple services which I don't have money for or time to enjoy.
The only thing I currently have is Amazon Prime and the only reason I have it is because I get other Amazon services for free. I could care less about their selection although it is improving. I am not going to subscribe to any of these services and while I am falling behind on my pop culture references, I will have to just learn to adapt.
Another user referenced Youtube Lectures, which is good until YouTube pulls their walled garden crap. Hulu already seems to want to do the same thing which ended my subscription with them.
In other news, books are still around and I feel a bit more accomplished having read through one of them instead of losing hours watching lame or rehashed plots of television shows.
