    “Even if you are watching a computer or mobile phone, you still say in Korean that you are watching television,”

    This about sums it up for me, too. Whatever device you might be watching it on, it's still network programming.

    My family and I got rid of our television in 2000 and haven't looked back. We use our computer and laptop to watch DVDs and to watch programs offered on free tube sites like hulu.com and fancast.com.

    The South Korean phenomenon (minus the pirating aspect) is merely one step ahead of where television and cable are heading anyways.

    Advertisers are scrambling to develop new strategies to ensure viewers see their ads. NBC.com, CBS.com, ABC.com all have gotten around the "TiVo" effect that allows viewers to skip ads. Their solution is to allow viewers to skip ahead in the program, but not the ads. ABC does allow you to skip the "rest of the commercial" but only after watching at least 20 seconds of it.

    Within 5 years, cable will be outdated completely. Internet viewing will be the standard. The switchover in the US to HD broadcasting is certainly helping expedite the change to internet viewing. Now, all we need are more fiber networks with nodes capable of handling the data.
