- Forum: iPod + iTunes + AppleTV
How is it a horrendous deal? If I can skip cable and only rent the shows I want to watch, I guarantee you I'll be coming out ahead of someone who's subscribing to HD digital cable or satellite service with a HD PVR. And I get little to no repeat viewing out of the TV I watch, so why would I want to spend more just to archive data I don't want? Just because it doesn't work for you, doesn't mean it doesn't work for anyone.
