I missed an hour of the premium stream today, so I decided to just wait until the archive is up, which is what I usually do, but I wondered what you all did?

Not that serious about them. I will hop on in whenever. Usually you can figure out what is going on.

Yeah it doesn't matter to me.

Depends, but usually I'll keep watching and then go back and see what I missed on the archive.

Doesn't really matter to me. 
Even if have watched the full live stream I sometimes end up watching the whole video again when the archive goes up, so for me jumping in the middle of it is fine too.

I can't be arsed to watch through the entire video afterwards.

If I'd been watching for some time, then I just go with it. If I have to enter an hour into it, I just skip things entirely.

The internet is better than television because it operates on my schedule. I will watch those live streams when I want to.

Depends on what they're playing. If it's a progressing game where I needed to see earlier stuff, then no. But if it's a multiplayer style game, it doesn't bother me to just jump right into the live stream.

It depends on what they are streaming and how much entertainment I think it's going to bring. I usually want to see beginning to end if I think its going to be great. Otherwise jumping into the middle and/or doing stuff on the side is no problem.

I kinda like to wait and get it all out in one go. It also doesn't help that I'm usually busy when there's a livestream going on so I miss most of it anyways.

I go back to the front. That is how I enjoy all my media so for any kind of film it is no different.

I tend to only half pay attention to streams anyway, so it doesn't really matter to me if I miss an hour.

I had it on in the background while I played a game, but just decided to shut it off and wait for the archive.

Tonight, I came in a few minutes late and then proceeded to fall asleep for most of it (had it on my TV/second monitor). I awoke to the craziness of lazerdisc's or whatever that was. I am stoked to download and watch it whenever it is up.

I usually download them if I've missed a significant chunk and watch what I missed and skip what I've seen.

I'm kinda OCD about this sort of stuff so if I miss any portion of it I'll wait for the archive.

@Jack268: The Streams aren't that entertaining so yes, if I see a Stream running I'll check it out, but I don't avoid it just to be able to watch it fresh. I think a Live stream is best when it is alive and not a historical document.

I only watch bits of the streams, they don't really interest me. I never watch quick looks all the way through either.
