TV show marathons: One of the best ways to get into a series is to watch multiple show episodes back to back to back to back. Waiting for a new episode to show up each week is the thing of the past. After all, who can wait a full week to find out what happens to their favourite characters? Additionally, who can remember what even happened a week ago on the episode? By watching TV online, you can watch television without the wait.
Portability: This mostly applies if you watch TV shows online on your laptop computer. Let’s face it there are many dreary tasks in our day to day lives, such as cooking or sorting laundry. Life is made so much better when you can watch TV while doing dishes. No, you do not need a TV in your kitchen, just bring in your laptop and place it on the counter and watch away.
The convenience: In the past we were all reliant on the television schedule of the networks. Things got trickier if both of your favourite shows were on at the same time on the same night. You would have to make the impossible choice of your favourite and then hope someone would tape the other one for you. Besides, who can guarantee to be at the same place at the same time every week? Television schedules are not convenient for the busy people.
Limited commercial interruption: Did you ever wonder why a hour long show has over 20 min of commercials? In the past you had to diligently sit through them or make mad dashes to the bathroom or for a snack if you wanted to catch your show. By watching TV online there is very limited commercial interruption. You may not know what to do with all the extra time that has now been magically handed to you. Better yet, you can pause your online show, if you need to answer that phone call or grab a quick snack-something you could never do with live TV. With the excellent quality of todays’ computers watching TV online is a more convenient option.
