BINGO! It’s way easier to do as you say then it is to make ALL your Roku’s, Apple TV’s, Smart TV’, etc., show, cast, log, search, find, organize and bloody well actually PLAY a program. Last night I nearly threw something at a Netflix program for their intrusive “we’re going to force a promo down your throat instead of watching credits” nonsense. Even though I figured out how to avoid this, NOW I need a Netflix remote ready to go before show’s end.
I never thought I’d prefer TiVo / Sage / Cable over a la carte streaming, but the whole streaming concept is a billing, technical, logistics clusterf@#!
