Watching live sporting events has been the most popular reason for watching TV for decades.
With the advent of easy-to-use DVR technology in the 1990’s, and then it’s wide-spread adoption over the last fifteen years, sports remain one of the few types of programming that are consistently watched live versus recorded.
Using psychological and sociological principles, attempt to understand and explain this issue: What makes watching a sporting event live more valuable than watching it pre-recorded, and why is this different from most other programming?
Your essay should be between 600 and 1000 words
Two professional sources required (not Wikipedia)

Tips for successful writing:
First build an outline for your comparison. List three to five media and the distinguishing features for each. Then compare those features in your notes and settle on your final three for your essay.
Think about your personal experience AND the experiences of others. Ask questions of people from multiple generations to understand their perspective on the differences. Be careful to avoid taking for granted that your experience is the same as everyone else’s.
Be creative, yet practical. What changes in a person if they change where or how they get most of their information? Why does it matter?
