Last night I didn’t get home until very late, so I didn’t spend a lot of time watching Television, but I was very pleased when I got home to find that my large format version of the new DL.TV, Diggnation, and the new Revision 3 show “The Totally Rad Show” were all waiting for me.
This is what I got an AppleTV for.
I love being able to watch these shows on my television…and I love that they look good. With as many podcasts as I watch, I probably wouldn’t even need to subscribe to any major network shows, and I’d still have more content than I knew what to do with.
To me, this is the promise of AppleTV and all the devices like it. This literally makes it possible for two guys on a couch to produce their own television show…now, I know some people feel that’s a bad thing, because of all the crap that people will produce that is in no way compelling or professional…and I agree…there will be a lot of crap…but you know what? There was a lot of crap on my cable too….
With the right filtering and showcasing systems online, we’ll be able to easily find the good stuff…if you seek out the good stuff in video podcasting, you’ll have so much stuff to watch on your AppleTV you’ll never get to it all.
Of everything I’ve watched on the AppleTV so far, the podcasts are the area I’m the most satisfied with, and if you have been looking for a way to watch these on your TV with no hassle, and you want to get in on the ground floor of this device, I say go buy one. Still, if podcasting isn’t your thing, it may be a little early.
