- In the morning commute to work, I would like to listen to my favorite news of the day, MSNBC, PBS, CNN, whether in real time or previous recorded, as long as it's timely updated. I'd also like to listen to my subscribed talk shows of the day, e. g. Cramer's RealMoney, and other podcasts that interest me.
- In the evening after dinner, I would like to turn on my HDTV and watch my favorite TV shows, e. g. Apprentice, in my own schedule, again regardless of it being recorded or real time. Similarly in the weekends, I would like to pick a movie from my subscribed list, directly delivered to my living room, through broadband, instead of me going to the store or checking the mail inbox.
Note: reference Paul Allen's interesting viewpoint on the future of media delivery.
