Unlike many players in what THE WALL STREET JOURNAL calls "The Share Economy," my neighbor doesn't advertise on the Internet what she will share - for a price. We just know that for a small contribution to the group experience of watching "Downton Abbey" together we post-TV folks will have access to PBS and to each other's company.
Sometimes I whip up a dish we can all enjoy and some set aside for the hostess. Other times I leave a few bucks, as when I wanted to catch "Mad Men" on AMC. Others contribute money, which is made welcome or barter as in providing hair trims.
A few years ago no one might have predicted that those with traditional televisions and a cable account would become players. Then more of us, especially Baby Boomers, realized we had an addiction to the small screen. For example, I had turned down an emergency scriptwriting assignment because it conflicted with my "Nightline" habit. In addition, the cost of cable kept going up with fewer channels provided.
Just-in-time TV viewing amidst a group has been an approach to managing an addiction and listen to other points of view about programming.
