I really miss being able to watch TV

I mean like just turn on the TV, flip to a channel and watch. Now it's like, hey, let's watch the hockey game... what app is it? TSN? SportsNet? ESPN? Maybe it's CBC, no wait... then you find the app and it's not logged in... wtf is my password, wait which e-mail address... ok got it, WRONG PASSWORD, FUCK.... wait, I have a account with TELUS, log in with that... ok, what's the code, ok "CJ4PF5" -- type it in! I'm trying, it's not working, it's just spinning... wait, the Wifi is disconnected, is your Wifi ok? Should be, it's working for me, I don't know... ok turn off the Wifi and just use cell data... I can't, I have data turned off -- well, fuckin turn it on for 10 seconds, ok wait the Wifi is back... ok are we logged in? YES, there it is!! with 10 seconds left in the fucking period... great. Now what, should we order pizza? Sure, order something. Where? DoorDash? Skip the Dishes? Uber Eats? Why don't you just use the PizzaHut app directly... ok... fuck, I forgot my password

I got rid of my phone and have tv and cable for the exact reasons you state. The importance of sitting on a couch with a clicker superseded anything scrolling on a phone offered.

I much prefer to be able to watch TV now because of the advent of DVRs. I can record shows that I watch when I'm at work or asleep etc. I can skip all the annoying commercials too. My biggest gripe is that cable monopolies jacked up the prices to insane levels. Also, there are too many separate content providers (Hulu, Apple+, Amazon, Disney+ etc.)
As far as ordering takeout, you can just call them on the phone or better yet, pick it up yourself because it's cheaper.

I love this, it's so accurate! But one HAS to log into the Pizza Hut app. Those Pizza Hut points add up fast for a free medium pizza!
