You're right about TV
Part of the reason I want to use Internet TV is I hate paying the cable company for programs I don't watch. In the US I tend to watch PBS and not much else - I have watched various foreign/overseas news programs and we mostly read UK newspapers on the web. Like several other people who comment - I download music, books etc and of course pay my bills. It is interesting to notice the differences between people's needs and services in different countries. We just returned from Europe and I am surprised that my internet connection is no better here than it was in the middle of the country in France.
