I want cable TV without the cable! I'm nearly there, but I want the most efficient way to accomplish this.
Help me round out my setup make it more efficient!

Here's what I have:
1: XBox 360
4: Old-school AppleTV
Here's what I currently use them for:
1: Netflix (Wii, 360, Roku)
2: HULU+ (Roku)
3: Youtube (AppleTV)
4: Vimeo (Roku)
First off, I have very little interest in hooking up a PC to the TV, I rather like the idea of sticking with little sexy appliances in the living room, thank you.
What I really want to add:
1: Adult Swim
2: Comedy Central
3: Any non-HULU channel feed (CBS, BBC, PBS)
I installed Boxee on the AppleTV, but being a first-gen it really doesn't have the muscle to do the job (Comedy Central always freezes loading South Park)
I'm not afraid to install software on any of these devices (I've already hacked the AppleTV), or perhaps get a new AppleTV if they actually get any apps/channels available for it. I currently use the Apple TV only for YouTube and streaming my iTunes library.
I plan on dropping the XBox Gold account as one year of that is about the same price as the Roku.
I am open to all advice and suggestions now! Thanks!
