I’ve been trying to help a friend who bought a Roku and can’t stream to her TV. I entered netflix streaming cable tv into Google and the third item down was this one. I’m going to investigate more of your site and hope to decrease my cable bill.
Doing research and came from this article;
Great site and gave me enough courage to step off the ledge and tell RCN to go shove it up there…honestly, I waited for 9 hours for them to call and tell me they were still an hour away! So, I found your site, hooked up the OTA, connected it to my Tivo and voila, I was blown away. Plus I may switch out my Tivo for a Roku now. Plus I’m streaming Espn3 from a tablet pc to my tv because all my equipment sits in a different room than the tv. This site taught me everything! Thanks so much!
Oh, I found it by simply searching on Google to see if Tivo could work without Cable TV
Yahoo search landed us here because we are wondering what to do next, we quit paying for outrageous cable over 5 yrs ago and have enjoyed the extra money, but our converter box seems to have died on us so checking for the next options and even briefly considered cable, now we’ll ck out some the options you’ve list!
I did a Google search for something very specific: “best way to watch hulu plus on tv”
I executed this search because I was debating about whether I should buy a Roku, or just stick with my PS3 (for Hulu Plus). I think I’ll be getting the Roku because it offers more “channels” and seems to offer a better experience overall, since I will be able to turn off the beastly PS3 and use something specifically designed for watching movies and TV shows instead.
Found you on the Franklin Proserity Report
