You could pull the individual episodes for modern family from amazon down to your tivo: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003DZ39GQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=digital-video&qid=1270651944&sr=1-1

I agree overall-it's broken so I'll continue to use torrents.


Great post. I look at small content creation networks like Revision 3 (http://rev3.com) as a group of people that fully understand the potential for content distribution. I'm guessing the major networks will never figure this out but instead wait for these smaller networks to gain a following and then purchase them.

It's always seemed odd to me that the big networks send out free signals over the airways for anyone with an antena and yet are scared to do the same on the interwebs.


If there was a distributer that gave you access to all forms of media in an open format so I could easily grab a video or book and watch it on my wifes iphone, our tv, my android device, my laptop, really anywhere then I would instantly sign up. Its odd that this isnt already accomplished. But I also find it odd that schools do not train humans in the practice of managing personal finances, or interpersonal relationship, and basically I've lost faith that anything remotely utopian, cannot survive capitalism. Now apple and microsoft are taking a way the freedom to install whatever application you choose on your device. The courts are ruling that the fcc cannot regulate net neutrality. Apple could easily keep track of your purchases in itunes and allow you to download them at any time, the technology allows for it, but instead if you lose a download youll have to buy it again later. Consider healthcare there we can see that corporations don't do it right they do whatever maximizes profit.
