Baby Boomers and Millennials: Do You Need PayTV Service?

“Where I grew up, we had the three TV networks, maybe two radio stations, no cable TV. We still had a long-distance party line in our neighborhood, so you could listen to all your neighbors’ phone calls. We had a very small public library, and the nearest bookstore was an hour away.” –Marc Andreessen

One of the many things that Patrick and Amanda have noticed when working together on The San Diego Lifestyle is that although they see a lot of things the same way, they have very different views on a number of topics. This can be challenging, especially as they work through the creation of a virtual guide to San Diego for visitors and locals. Some of these differences are a result of the fact that he is a man and she’s a woman, and that he has a lot more life and business experience than she has. But at a more fundamental level, some of their different views are a result of the fact that she’s a Millennial and he’s a Baby Boomer. Baby Boomers and Millennials have a lot in common, but tend to also disagree on, well, a LOT. They have decided to start a new segment on The San Diego Lifestyle where they will discuss some of their views on a variety of topics. Check out this week’s debate on payTV service such as Cox or TimeWarner Cable.

Baby boomers and Millennials, do you need it? Can you live without watching sports and news live? Can you watch on your phone or tablet instead? Do you hate paying monthly for channels you don’t watch? Patrick and Amanda both love NFL football and are trying to decide if they should finally pay for service. What do you think? Should they subscribe to payTV service? Let us know what you think!
