Qubo.com

Qubo.com

I used to have to filter the shows he could watch on Comcast's zombie-maker line up. But Qubo is just clean educational programming. That and PBS Kids is more than enough entertainment for my son. This content was of much higher quality yet it was absolutely free.

Fawlty Towers

Fawlty Towers

Then came Netflix and boy was that an excellent experience. Yes, I got to watch as many movies as I wanted for a mere $10 a month. But Netflix is not just about movies. It is a good example of the Long Tail statistical property. I found amazing shows like Fawlty Towers and other hidden gems. Stuff that would never justify shelf space, or schedule airtime, on those usual zombie-maker channels.
