Our family has found that we watch much more interesting content targeted to our specific tastes through YouTube. We probably spend at least a 1/2 hour a day watching programming from YouTube channels. The content is placed directly on YouTube from the big media networks, independent networks and organizations, and even PBS.
I find myself spending time watching interesting cooking shows that have totally replaced my FoodTV viewing from Zagat, Munchies, Molto Mario, Jamie Oliver, and Gordon Ramsey’s personal channels. The gate keepers have left the building, and these organizations are embracing the power and reach of the Internet!
With YouTube, you can follow your favorite music artists, painters, and travel hosts – again – directly from the source.
The kids use YouTube to watch videos on their favorite games, or science experiments, and show and tell videos on their favorite crafts.
You don’t need to cut cable to try this out. Experiment with a week or two of streaming content from YouTube through your streaming device’s app. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised what’s available.
P.S. I even streamed Donald Trump’s thank you tour stops LIVE via YouTube. Very cool!
