Paid YouTube? I guess that’s reasonable. We already pay for quite a bit of online entertainment – Netflix, Hulu, Spotify etc. Why not YouTube too.
I used to not have a TV when I first came here from Bangladesh. I didn’t really have the time or, this is more important, the money to afford it. I did have a phone and a long distance carrier and I paid a lot of money for that combination. I didn’t really have a choice.
Today I (my family) have a couple of TVs (with satelite service), 4 mobile phones and a few online entertainment services. My average costs today compared to 27 years ago is not that very different. Specially if I take inflation into account and the fact that there is 4 of us being entertained, informed or connected.
But . . . . something doesn’t feel right.
