    It doesn’t surprise me at all. In this day and age with the technology we have at our beck and call, why would you need to be home in a certain time frame to watch a program? We’ve gotten used to not having to sit next to a house phone waiting for a phone call, we can take a call practically any place on Earth. Why can’t it be just as easy with other forms of media? No matter how hard the networks struggle to keep it from happening, the old television standard way of viewing content is going away, upgraded for our convenience. All the networks have had years and years to embrace this inevitability, and instead they choose to ignore it. They could have gone digital and started streaming years ago. I think the only network that’s trying it at this point is CBS with their streaming service, and not even a new Star Trek series can get people onboard at this late date.
