Life wthout “spoiler alerts”

Consumed => “Bits: No TV? No Subscription? No Problem” by Jenna Worthman on NY Times.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/07/business/streaming-sites-and-the-rise-of-shared-accounts.html

Towards the end of page 1 you’ll find:

“This feels like a missed opportunity for all these services. It’s the failure to grasp the future of television as a shared social experience online.”

The future? Huh? How about a repeat of the past?

One of things that made TV such an exceptional force (once it was widely adopted) was that it facilitated a (massive) shared social / cultural experience. Everyone in a home got together at the same time, and that was the same time as every other home—next door, down the street and across town. Sometimes you have to wonder if the need for “spoiler alerts” is progress after all.
