Default Does live matter any more?

I was just musing over the current trend to watch on demand and was
wondering what this will do to live events. after all in the old days people
could watch most stuff live but nowadays its often a pay to view for sport
or some other event, and thus nobody will want to talk to their mates as one
will no doubt spill the beans about what happened in the latest instalment
of something or sport match.
I know we used to time shift stuff from back in the 70s, but now the whole
idea of watching what I heard called Linear tv, seems to be a dying thing

What does this mean for broadcast systems, since much of the on demand is
now fed over the internet.
