I've got my big TV hooked up to a Roku Box and to a desktop computer (a little Meerkat from) and I've got access to far more than I have time to watch.
As of tomorrow afternoon, I will officially be a Cord Cutter myself. Any suggestions for a rookie? All suggestions welcome, especially what you guys use daily and for the kids. Thanks.
Hi--what're the specs on that Meerkat? I couldn't find it on the site. Is it a laptop?
I've also got a Roku (angry birds edition from xmas 2011) w/and some free channels like , , etc. Some months we spring for . Next upgrade/addition will be an HD-OTA antenna or AppleTV or Google TV. Not sure which yet. Also thinking about a Chrome book that could also be plugged in to the TV when I'm not using it for actual computing.
What's your setup, ?

Doug, welcome to the club. I think over the air is great for kids content, since you can get a ton of shows from local PBS affiliates (plus Qubo in some markets), so I'd definitely invest in an antenna. Netflix is also great for kids, especially if you have a device with the Just for Kids UI...
We've been using Boxee Box for about 4 months now (NetFlix is the go to) and between that and a pair of rabbit ears we're doing just fine.
Our whole reason for for getting rid of our cable was to reduce the cost of what we actually watch on TV.
I'm moving in that direction too. I have an AppleTV, Roku (1st Gen), PS3 that I only use for Blu-Ray and a Wii my kids use for video games and now for +Netflix. It has been about a week without cable and it has been pretty good. A few hiccups with the +Netflix on the Wii, but the Roku and AppleTV have been solid. Thanks.
Thank you. I have been using some streaming devices and it has been great. I love that Just for Kids feature +Netflix offers on all of my devices (except iPad 1st Gen). I would love to invest in an OTA antenna, but it has to be an indoor model because my homeowner's association frowns on outdoor ones, but that is a different story and for another G+ Community. Any recommendations anyone? Thanks again.
I think that I will miss out on some shows like Game of Thrones in March, but saving $130+ every month calms my wants :-).
