I am just curious if Apple TV is more cost effective for me than cable. 1) Are you Able to stay current with shows or is there a delay between air date and the date you can download them with iTunes? 2) if you purchase a season of a show, you have that purchase forever, even if you delete the show from your device or iCloud? As in, you can always download it again anytime? 3) I don't see many older shows on iTunes. This seems to be a major drawback to giving up cable. You are much more limited in programming. I need my Little House on the prairie. 4) how does Apple TV handle sports networks like espn? Does it broadcast live games? I see NHL on the list but what about stuff like soccer and nfl?
