After watching the new Apple iPad keynote, I decided to fire up my Apple TV box. It's been awhile since I used it because I've been using Comcast instead. However, after numerous price hikes and lousy programming choices, a few weeks ago I decided to all but cancel my Comcast and go back to the Basic $14/mo plan. If the choices were bad before, well now on Basic they're terrible - it's almost as if Comcast is deliberately programming crap on Basic to get people to upgrade to their premium channels! So later to Comcast, hello Apple TV.
While still not as on demand as Comcast, Apple TV has really improved. The choices of movies and other entertainment channels has exploded since the last time I used it. Apple TV is today a much more viable alternative to cable than ever before. Thank you Apple!
