3 ways the internet is changing how we watch TV

105 days ago

The rise of the internet and online streaming has disrupted the way we watch TV... and, has thankfully put an end to the relentless battle over the TV remote that most of us have suffered in our lifetime.

Growing up with siblings: life was a battlefield and, the painful memories of never managing to gain control of the TV remote is slowly starting to fade away... thanks to the evolution of TV.

It wasn't too long ago that catching up on your favourite TV show meant propping yourself up on the couch in front of the television set in the living room and, enduring endless television advertisements selling us things we don't need.

We're no longer slaves to our TV sets and, the TV Guide is no longer the official guide, controlling how and what we watch on television.

Now, staring into a television screen is just one of the many ways to watch Lifetime Channel's Marrying Millions and Cheerleader generation and; the options for augmenting our traditional way of watching are becoming more and more exciting.
