Online Video Guide

I know where I went wrong, socially.  It was my father who led me astray.  My father was the first person I knew who said, “No, I won’t let the cable company overcharge me for television.”  In the eighties he bought one of those huge ten foot dishes.  Parking it in his backyard he then proceeded to enjoy all sorts of television from around the world for free — until “they” encrypted the channels.  I helped feed his rebelliousness “go dad” when I purchased Direct TV’s first mini-dish sometime in the nineties and my father escaped the insidious grasp of the cable companies again.

Saddled with my father’s rebellious nature, it has been well over a year since I switched over to nothing but the Internet for my television choices.  HULU is a godsend.  Vongo was a cherished choice for movies, but I don’t want to even pay the ten bucks they charged.  This weekend I discovered something new.  A guide.  A guide to all the Internet television offerings.  I’ve been joyously sifting through the various offerings for the last twelve hours, and “No, I don’t intend on sleeping anytime soon.”  There are literally thousands of offerings on the Internet. 

Opening CNET and selecting a show to start on will essentially turn your desktop or laptop or whatever device you are using into a TV.  It works just like selecting a TV channel and the CNET videos keep playing without me having to select a video to watch.  Now if they would just let it stream instead of asking me every ten minutes or so if I would like to continue watching.  Hey, CNET!  I don’t want to get off my couch to click the resume video button.  I just want to watch, damn it!

Anyway, if you would like to join the rebellion, this new video guide is called OVGuide or Online Video Guide and can be found here: http://www.ovguide.com/index.html.
