    I would be more worried about privacy invasion with those things. I considered them a while back when we got rid of satellite tv.

    Depends on your interests in tv. I don't watch tv at all except for sports which I can get online and she watches these goofy sci fi shows that are available everywhere and she has a $#@! ton of them on dvd.

    So we use netflix, hulu and I subscribe to the NHL network for hockey games. Drastically reduced the price of tv costs for us since we're not paying for $#@! we never watch now.

    I run a laptop right into our tv to watch btw.

    I don't have that option where I'm at now, data and tv is kind of a monopoly. I live in rural/frontier. For me streaming is a better option but I can see how in a more competitive, urban market having those options might be good.

    We get like 15 stations broadcasted over the airways locally by the city, I need to go down to radio shack and get one of those old roof antennas and run a line down to my tv for those, just never got around to it.
