@centrox,
The best ways to watch a movie from most preferred to least:
1. Movie theater;
2. Online streaming source;
3. BluRay;
4. DVD;
5. Direct mind to mind telepathic connection;
6. VHS tied with laser disc?
7. Semaphore adaptation;
8. Smoke signals;
9. Broadcast to basic cable/network tv with commercial interruptions.

@tsarstepan,
How about on PBS stations where there aren't commercials during the showing?

@Sturgis,
That's probably 6.5 as you can't control when the film starts and ends. I don't have a DVR ... so pausing live tv (even when I do get a clear signal since I don't have cable is not an option. Plus, the PBS movies played are a limited selection (though often high in quality and quite watchable).

@Sturgis,
About 1 1/2 years ago, I cut the cord. I have Netflix streaming, Netflix discs and Amazon Prime. The news I get from the internet, and newspapers.

I never realized what a pleasure it was to watch a show without commercials. Yesterday I was in the hospital for an outpatient procedure. While I was waiting, There was a t.v. After about 15 minutes, I had to turn it off. The ads were too obnoxious.

I am watching the show "24" on Amazon Prime. I noticed something funny. All during the show there would be a notice of a time across the screen. A second later there would be another time, usually about 5 minutes later. I couldn't figure out the point of it. Then it dawned on me. What I was seeing were the commercial breaks, although I was not seeing the commercials.

For obvious reasons I suppose, nobody has mentioned the Method That Dare Not Speak Its Name.

@centrox,
Projection via colonoscopy? That's where they project the movie onto the wall of the appendix and live stream it with a second camera.

Can't say that I've ever had that experience before. They do shoot a couple times a year (mostly tv) in my neighborhood.

HBO's Girls used to be the most prolific. Elementary as well though I've never seen a single episode.
