  29. 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!

  30. 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!

  31. 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.

  32. searched comcast complaints. You have made my day! already have Roku, just signed up for Hulu Plus, switched my internet service to clear wireless 3g. Adios Comcast!

  33. Heard about the site in a book I recently bought, called “The Only Investment Guide You’ll Ever Need” by Andrew Tobias. He has a chapter full of money-saving tips, and this site was mentioned.

    Thanks for all the great info on this site!

  34. In the book I’m reading: “10,001 Ways To Live Large On A Small Budget” by Wisebread. I cut cable a month ago and have been celebrating ever since. For those of you not sure, trust me you will not miss it.

  35. 10,001 ways to live large on a small budget by the writers of wise bread. Also did a google search of how to watch TV without cable

  37. Googled “how do I watch tv without cable” and this link came up! I’m still very confused and overwhelmed by the technology but appreciate this website!

  38. I found you guys by doing google search: demand better TV lower cable bills. You were the 4th/ fourth search result. I had never heard of you guys before.

  39. I found your site while doing a Google search on “broadcast tv” I don’t use cable or FIOS although both are available to me. I’m constantly looking for ways to improve my over-the-air connection, expand my channel selection, and keep up on new broadcast channels in my area. ‘m also on alert for any attempts by the cable and phone companies to limit broadcast options.

  40. I read about you in “The ONLY Investment Guide You’ll EVER Need” by Andrew Tobias, 2010 revised and updated version (from local library).

  41. Found you while doing a Roku search. Trying to figure out which model is right for my and looks like info is on your site. Thanks.

  42. Already got a ROKU and I’ve been testing out if it’s really going to accomplish what I want –cancel the cable, of course, but in a way that’s user friendly to our tastes in shows and movies and truly cheap when you add it all up….So I’m excited to have found your site, it looks great.

    I had already googled a bunch of other things for hours, but the phrase that brought your site up was do you lose info when you use roku power?

    I guess it makes sense that you wouldn’t, right? Or else you’d have to choose and load all your favorites again and that takes quite awhile. But I did have the question, so I asked it. I’m always happy to learn from the experience of people who’ve already done something I want to do! Thanks for creating this site.

    Thanks, Melody
