I haven't deliberately watched live TV in decades. Most of my TV comes via MythTV, and most of it is recorded from preset schedules for things I know and like. If I were a person wanting to watch the soccer, and I absolutely had to watch the night's soccer game in time to tell everyone about it at work, I'd simply set MythTV to record it, wake up an hour earlier in the morning refreshed, watch the game while doing some stretches or something, and then go to work and laugh out loud at the poor saps who have been up in the freezing cold that night, shivering in their blankets and punishing their body with lack of sleep. But since I'm no more than ephemerally interested in it, I don't.
(At the urging of several people in CLUG, I'm trying to work out when I can do a MythTV install-fest. The basic plan is to give people a simple written sheet of instructions beforehand, and get them to turn up with hardware and as much of the software as possible installed. Then we go through people's machines and fix problems. We try and get as much working as we can, but there are no guarantees. If you turn up with a bucket of parts, you get put at the back of the queue. But this competes for my Infinite Free Time...)
