I think there was a thread about this the other day. You like it? Pretty easy to set up?
what is that?
ok i looked it up. looks pretty cool. but i dont see where you can watch live TV
I have the Apple TV.
It is in use every single day.
It's really for streaming shit like Netflix. I think I'm the last person in the world who doesn't stream from Netflix. Have a nice new TV, just wanna be able to stream. You probably have a PS3 or something, I don't have game systems so I need a peripheral device to connect it via wifi.
I hooked my blu-ray to the cable box with a simple ethernet cable... streams netflix, amazon prime, etc great.
How come you prefer that to just something like a Roku? I'm just curious as I don't know much about either.
i stream netflix using the Xbox. Roku looks pretty coll though
Don't have Blu-Ray but that's an option. Let me ask them, if you stream most movies, why have a Blu-Ray player? Thx btw.
youre not gonna get blu ray quality. not sure if that matters to you or not.
Sony blu-ray was around $80 and comes with that simple internet port to deliver the signal to your amplifier via the hdmi out.
Its good to have the player for my existing DVD's, plus a lot of newer releases on netflix are not immediately available for streaming so you still have to rent the discs.
oh shit i forgot that RedBox has streaming now too.
there's a million channels ...I watch my ROKU quite a bit ... there is a channel that allows you to get an East coast feed of the standard broadcast channels..if you want to get more than that, it costs $10-$20 a month (somewhere in that neighborhood)
I dumped my Satellite TV altogether... Was a complete waste of money ... I got one of those HD over-the-air antenna's for those times I really NEED to watch the regular TV channels ....
broadcast TV for ROKU
I think they're kind of outdated now. I'd probably opt for a $49 streaming Blu ray player with Netflix.
i didnt realize this
they're just getting warmed up, and gaining popularity ... far from outdated
there's quite a few unadvertised channels... You just gotta search Google for them (at least that's what I did to find them)
i planned on getting an Xbox One next year. that should be able to stream everything and run my cable
