Just picked up the Fire TV (set top box) for $36.55.
Amazon has the price dropped down to $84 right now "for a limited time" & I got an additional $50 knocked off with the Sling TV deal (pre-pay for 3 months). 
Not too bad for a quad core device with 2 gigs of ram. 
Amazon Fire TV is a tiny box you connect to your HDTV. It’s the easiest way to enjoy Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, and more. Shop now

The hardware supports it. There's just no Android drivers. But if kodi provides them it should work. I already have an htpc for hd audio. Was just hoping for another option. I use my roku and plex when I don't care about 7.1

Hey +Google Play​​​, what gives with the online streaming of ULTIMATE SURVIVAL ALASKA on Google Play Movies & TV?? The last episode available is from the 25th of January. And it's been several days now since the last two episodes were aired on TV.

I thought new episodes were supposed to be available for steaming the next day after it airs on TV??

(....EDITED....)

Well this is disappointing.... Java (edit: NOT JavaScript) is apparently not supported on Chromebooks. Anyone know if this is something than can potentially be worked into Chrome OS in a future update??

....or better yet, if anyone knows of a work around??

One other thing is possible here.  The website is doing something, intrusion perhaps, that ChromeOS doesn't allow.

Finally got my Sling TV invite. Too bad its not compatible with either of my Google TVs (as expected), Chromecast, or Fire TV Stick though :-(
But they do say "coming soon" for Fire TV Stick under their FAQ at least.
I thought about using a HDMI cable from my tablet to the TV, but then I'd have to leave the screen on and tablet plugged in nonstop for that to work (not ideal).
I think I'm gonna wait until I have a way of actually using this service on the big screen before I jump in for a free trial unfortunately. Hopefully they add some extra channels that I'd actually like to watch in the mean time (Discovery, National Geographic, Fox News).

Has anyone else found a way to get their Sling TV on the big screen WITHOUT a Roku or hooking your computer up to it??

Has anyone found a decent, affordable, and subscription-free DVR for OTA broadcast?? I know you can get a TV tuner card for your desktop computer & turn your computer hard drive into a DVR, but I'd prefer a set top box if available.

I don't need a converter box for my TV, but I noticed that this one actually has recording capabilities (DVR).

I'm wondering if I could use this (with a coaxial splitter and/or switch) just for its DVR capabilities??

Has anyone tried, or have any experience with something like this??

+Bill Kalapun You get what you pay for. Tablo with a lifetime sub pays for itself in a few months. When a 35 dollar single tuner PVR can stream live content to your phone, then snag it.

Very true. And I'm sure that's why T-Mobile is noticeably absent from the the phone deal.

Done going to this Denny's!! Right when we very first walked up to the door we came upon some drunk teenager peeing literally right outside the front door on the building. SICK. Once we got inside, things didn't get much better -they forgot to bring out two of our orders, they kept on taking my silverware in my coffee cups every time I asked for a refill, they made one entree wrong TWICE in a row, and finally they brought us a to go box with a hole in the bottom of it. Talk about incompetent!! UPDATE: Decided to try it again a year after my last review. We walked in & got seated. Then waited & waited & waited. Finally after about 15 minutes of waiting with no one coming to talk to us or even give us water..... We left. Definitely never coming back.

Literally WORST resort I've ever stayed in. There are un-patched holes cut in the walls of each room. The curtains are broken and see through. The A/C is super loud and doesn't even blow enough cool air to cool down the living room AT NIGHT. The furniture and carpet are stained, torn, and from the 60's. Light bulbs are burnt out, patio furniture is super cheap, hangers are cheap plastic and mismatched, tubs are in horrible condition, no WiFi in the rooms, and the ceiling fans are seriously the absolute cheapest you can buy. Not to mention that the TV is positioned so that you can't even watch it from the couch. The ONLY two positives is that the landscaping is absolutely beautiful and the lobby is nice. I will definitely NEVER return to this resort again.

Won't accept coupons here. Manager read coupon twice and nodded his head that it was within its fine print guidelines. But then changed his mind and refused to take it at the register. Waited in line over 10 minutes too. BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE!!
