I recommend you check out this amazing app called youtube. It’s full of all these hilarious cat videos as well as some other things. Apparently it’s pretty popular but I only just heard about it so it can’t be that popular right?
Can just look at Australia. We have our internet, we have our internet speed packs, which doesn't include specifc sites, but it does give you some minor priority over other people (literally just means when there are many people trying to access the internet, the highest paying people get first priority... but you're paying for the speed not priority anyway) And then we also have pirate sites blocked... which can be gotten around by simply changing your DNS... because the government thinks that nobody is smart enough to know anything about computers and the internet.
I highly doubt it will be as bad as what people are trying to make it out to be, any company does anything even remotely fishy, they will end up bankrupt.
Everyone is freaking about about this. “I’m not paying ten bucks to watch a YouTube video!” “Like my Facebook post about me quitting Snapchat” Honestly, it’s not gonna change anything... for me at least. I have no friends so I don’t use social media past the forums.
The big deal is that a government agency (whose biggest priority should be protecting their citizens' best interests) went ahead and put forward a deal that restricts the freedom of American citizens, a deal that the overwhelming majority of American citizens did not want and passionately fought against.
tbh if it does become a thing where they slow connections, companies will probably just move servers overseas, so it becomes even less of an issue for a majority of the world. This is absolute worst case scenario so I don't really care.
The dumb thing is the example someone gave for why net neutrality was bad was they were like "Yeah but if you wanted to watch tv on a 4k monitor you'd have to deal with data turning up slower instead of us giving priority to that..."
y u strem tv
A lot of our ISPs also control our television and provide television/phone/internet bundles. The only reason my parents still pay for cable is because we live really close to our ISP's "connection beacon" so we get super fast internet and good connection but only if we include cable in our bundle.
The issue I have with the FCC's imposition on net neutrality is that they did it against the wishes of the overwhelming majority of American citizens, and they had no right to impede upon citizens' ability to freely access information and knowledge. It's corrupt as all heck
Why NOT use WiFi on a TV? The whole family gets to see something we really wanted to see (which we missed), HD and on a large screen! Or we can perhaps play some music video or something comedic to pass the day, we almost use our WiFi on TV everyday
Thats the tv accessing the internet. Not you streaming an actual tv channel to your tv. Secondly, watching things that you missed on tv... a lot of tvs have the ability to record specific shows while the tv is off these days
