This has been true since the advent of the DVR (or even the VCR to a lesser extent), unless you are a slave to broadcast schedules. Just get better at avoiding spoilers. It's a better viewing experience to wait until you have the whole season at once rather than mixing one episode of show X and an episode of show Y the next day.

For a usual weekly show, you'd be a few days behind with DVR, so you'd only have spoilers for that episode.
Now, you could have spoilers instantly, all the way to the season finale.

Slashdot Mobile pages are slow! Ugh I can't believe publishers are using STANDARDS to deliver content I don't want ( and therefore no one else wants because everyone thinks like me)

Google OK, here's a different standard that is limited on purpose in order to focus on content

Slashdot Ugh I don't like that either! It's too limiting!! If only everyone would make pages how I want, everyone would be happy. I won't even so much as make a single page for fear to be proven wrong though.

If you don't like the terms, don't buy the product. Let the free market sort things out.

Thats nice. I'll just buy out the water supply and include "Your first born become my slaves" in the terms of service. Let the free market sort things out, if they don't want to give me their first born they are welcome to die of thirst about 2 days later. That free market really works.

I wasn't aware that LG had a monopoly on televisions.

No one said anything about owning the software. In the contraty, this is usually about NOT running the manufacture provided firmware. (OpenWRT for example)

Or to stick to your restaurant example in its full absurdness: We are talking about paying a menu in a restaurant and then leaving early and cook at home instead. (The main difference is, that most of the money paid for a tv is for the hardware, and so writing of the cost for software you paid for by not using it is usually neglegible.)

So since it's absurd to do that in your restaurant analogy, it's absurd to want the software for the TV, therefore proving GPs point?
