Internet TV

Several months ago I created a list of the websites to go to in order to watch my favorite shows online. I successfully managed to go almost completely without using the television. It helps that I don't watch sports. I really don't know how I would have watched football online. The only times I needed the TV was to watch Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and recently I had both a TV and C-Span to watch the parade following the Inauguration. Even so, I was pissed because the one thing in that parade I wanted to see was at the very end and both cut off coverage before we got to that point.

Anyway, I need a new listing. So here it is.
I can't find a list of when all the shows return from their mid-season break so I'm only putting up what I know is playing. I'll add other stuff as it shows.

The Simpsons
American Dad
Family Guy

I still recommend "ReGenesis". http://www.hulu.com/regenesis

And if you do watch sports there is now Major League Baseball at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4WvfTNvh4Q

Meh. MLB Network is only going to be broadcasting 26 games during the regular season. A regular season that consists of 2430 games. I'd be POed about that except that Dish Network isn't carrying MLB Network and it isn't clear how many, if any, games they'll be streaming video for.

BTW, don't forget February 14. Pitchers and catchers report! There is something else going on that day, but I'll be darned if I can remember what. Probably not important anyways.

Our 5 month anniversary is 4 days before. I'm trying to figure out what to do for each.

I've no idea why it would be important to watch your TV shows online as opposed to on TV. No idea.

1) At the beginning of this season I wanted to see if internet TV had matured to the point where one could switch completely.
It's very close. I only got to see the first few episodes of "The Mentalist" before they stopped showing it online.

2) I don't have cable. I still have rabbit ears and my house design isn't conducive to running the wire for a roof antenna. So my picture is pretty much shit. During "Lost" and "Heroes" I can't read the subtitles.
The digital system is clean but the antenna needs repositioning for different stations. Then the box needs to be reprogrammed to accept this station that wasn't viewable in the previous position.

If you find that your experiment isn't meeting your needs, might I suggest Dish (satellite). We switched from cable when we moved to our current home (4 years ago) and haven't regretted a minute of it. Much more consistent.

I have no affiliation with Dish other than being a happy customer.

Ah, yes, but I'm a cheap bastard.
