I would like to cancel my cable and watch tv shows on my tv from my computer.
I currently don't feel that I watch enough tv to justify the cost. I currently only care about watching Lost (ABC), Mad Men (AMC), True Blood (HBO) some shows on PBS (primarily Frontline) and Top Chef.
Basically, I am realizing I am paying $80 a month to watch two tv shows at a time. It's not worth it. I have a series 2 Tivo, and an Xbox 360, and a netflix subscription.
Basically, I want to set up my media for the most ideal conditions, and to be able to watch tv shows from my computer on my tv screen. I am interested in hearing specifics from people on how you have done it, what tech/media items you have purchased, and what the pros and cons are of doing this, although I am 99% I am going to cancel my cable and start this transition.
I am considering the following:
- upgrading my Tivo
- getting a nice new flat screen HDTV
- getting Apple TV
