You are the one constantly claiming that live linear TV is

How is that negative? Or did you think that the introduction of VCRs was
negative? I'm puzzled by your weird motivations, Craig.
I have constantly challenged you, claiming that streaming is
No, Craig. You have constantly wavered between technical terms and
colloquialisms, most likely without understanding the difference. Your defense
of retaining wasteful one-way broadcast spectrum is always couched in terms of
this mysterious fear of the disappearance of linear, by appointment viewing.
Don't fret, Craig. You can eliminate the wasteful 24/7/365 broadcast spectrum,
while still transmitting whatever truly merits "live" as linear streams.
I have never said DECADES Bert. I have said we're not there yet.
There you go again. So on the one hand, you claim we don't need more bandwidth.
And in the next breath, you claim we need at least a decade or more to get
enough bandwidth. So, which is it Craig? Do we need no more bandwidth, or not?
We have all the last mile bandwidth we need, Craig, for TV streaming, except in
rural settings perhaps, if the spectrum is allocated efficiently. Not in
decades, but now. If broadband is available today to 70+% of households, and
it's higher than that already depending how you define broadband, then if 80+%
of cable system/FiOS spectrum is freed up, even without having to create a lot
of new PONs, we would have a pretty high percentage of homes all set, eh Craig?
Given the fact that most of the wired/FIOS MVPDs will be offering
gigabit broadband options - alongside their TV services - I don't
think capacity issues are stopping many people from moving to
streaming, if they want to.
If you're among the 25+% of households with no broadband, tell me how you can
