Watching TV on Library Computers

The Shifted Librarian poses some interesting questions in regards to TV programs on library computers. In the past year, we have seen several new online services that allow for people to watch television programs or movies online. For the most part, these services require you to register and download certain software, which would eliminate library computers as a possible avenue to use these services.

However, it may not be too long before a special download is not required. Customers currently access YouTube-type videos and music videos with our computers. Will we be seeing customers sitting back and watching their favorite TV show, or their favorite movie? Are we already seeing this?
