    I'm using apple TV which has some drawbacks. Will look into this. If you can stream movies from your own network, it might be worth switching since the apple doesn't have amazon prime streaming.

    pretty much the only reason I pay $90 a month for dish network is to get all Giants and Raiders games

    I would probably just watch the games on my iPad, but I'm too close to San Francisco to watch on the MLB TV app

    fuck me

    I think my kindle hooked up to my TV with an HDMI cable can do all the same things.
