    We dumped cable a long time ago. We just dumped netflix, because their selection has gone from 'okay' to 'worse'. We stream from Hulu and Amazon, and get a few of the lower channels for local news and odd shows. We get a couple of stations that have reruns of shows like Flipper, Partridge Family, I Dream of Jeannie...pretty off the wall stuff. I think one of them is MeTV, and I forget what the other one is. Everything else is a purchased DVD.

    We have not had a tv provider for 4 years. Between Hulu, Netflix, and the many channels that have episodes available the next day, we have not missed much.

    That is why I am thinking I can get away with dropping the TV part. I am very serious when I say I maybe watch TV all of 20 to 30 minutes a day (that's why I never seem to get through the list of shows saved on the DVR).

    get a Roku box

    Hulu saves about 6 weeks of the current season and Netflix has the previous seasons of shows,
    My winter project is to sit down and watch LOST from start to finish

    Will I be able to easily use different TV's (living room, bedroom, etc) or does that complicate things?

    I'm watching Archie Bunker In another thread, Christy mentioned loving her Roku so I ordered one. This is pretty fricken great - you'd love it. Crackle is wonderful, tons of choices. I'm loving the trip down memory lane.

    I could live without it because I watch so little TV.

    You know... my dad and step-mom have everything but they don't have a Roku. I'm buying them one of these for Christmas.

    I was checking online and for Roku 3 the best price was $88 at Walmart.

    Archie is talking about why we don't need gun control and I swear Edith reminds me of a neighbor.

    I am so glad I have no plans this weekend and just about all my Christmas shopping can be done on my computer.

    I bought the Roku 2 for $49.91 off Amazon on Saturday but the price is back up to $79.99. I will check the sales ads this weekend and let you know if I see any sales. I really want to get my dad one of these. He would love it!!! It would suck if I had to pay more to get him one than what I paid just 'cuz it is Christmas and it is so popular.
