Apple TV is one of the new ways to watch TV on-demand.

There seems to be hundreds of ways we can watch TV today. People can use Apple TV, TiVo, NetFlix, stream it online using Hulu or other online TV channels and now Google TV is coming up. Why is this so popular? The main reason for viewers is convenience: we can watch what we want when we want it.

Madeleine Brand talks to technology writer Robert Capps who works for Wired Magazine. Also, intern Jacob Margolis talks to Madeleine Brand about another way to view TV shows by downloading illegally using Bit Torrent technology.
