To Cordcutters: What is your setup?

I dropped cable and have been glued to Netflix lately, but I have a feeling that might get old soon.

So right now I have my PS3 and Xbox w/ Netflix and then I have an OTA antenna that gets CBS, Fox, and ABC.

I want to be able to get the best bang for my buck with the most content possible.

Thanks

I have an XBOX 360 and a ROKU. I tried Hulu+ but didn't think it was worth the money.

The one drawback is sports, as the ESPN3 app on the XBOX got neutered by Comcast down here. I can watch replays, but NOTHING live. Used to be able to watch almost everything they put on ESPN...

Must learn more about XBMC.

Either. I don't pay for Hulu+, I don't see the benefit.

I've got the AppleTV2 running the most recent version so it accesses iTunes Match directly and it's awesome...especially with the latest version of remote.app.

AirVideo works nicely, but I've recently started getting into using iFlicks to transcode (or put a new wrapper on) videos. It's also much faster to add metadata and grabs posters for you.

Does anyone in Lees Summit have the Clearstream C2 or the C2V? The old rabbit ears aren't cutting it anymore so I'm pondering an upgrade. I believe the only difference is the C2V picks up VHF as well as UHF, while the C2 only does UHF. All the local KC channels broadcast in UHF, but I'm wondering if there is any reason not to just get the C2V because why not? The price is similar.

This is for the living room TV, upstairs the cheapie antenna works fine, but downstairs the reception just sucks sometimes. Thinking of mounting it on the chimney.

In addition to cheapies and powered cheapies, if you have the space and own your place Home Depot has an RCA [brand] full sized antenna for your attic or roof. I think mine was about $35 back in 2005 or so.

Properly aimed, connected and grounded, it will pick up any and everything around.

Mediacom is like that too with ESPN3. I think ESPN did it though.

Watched tons of MLB last year, this year, nothing.

I get everything in HD, even NBC, which is hard to get OTA in Vegas unless you have an outdoor setup.

I got a PlayOn lifetime license when I bought my Roku. You still have to pay for anything the requires subscription, but it will deliver whatever you subscribe to as a channel.

Just buy the lifetime subscription when it goes on sale. They also now have a feature called playmark that allows you to stream a video from your browser to your tv. I use it and Plex to stream to my roku.

So the only changes I've made since posting this almost 8 months ago are that I bought a different antenna which can pickup NBC and I paid for a VPN to stream NFL.

I like my setup but wish I knew a way to utilize the VPN to watch College Sports and NBA in HD like I can with the NFL.

Fish - what's your XBMC setup now, in terms of plugins? I'm going to pull the trigger on this, but I'll definitely need some advice on a good setup to have.

roku 3 streaming netflix ($8), aero ($8, great for getting local fox/nbc/cbs on a high quality feed), and playon (one time, $50)

playon lets users create scripts/plugins, which are just aggregations of streams...you can find - literally - anything

i get any channel on the globe, and pretty much every tv show and movie made in the last 30 years from just a few scripts...right up to movies being released this week

$16 a month

used to pay $80+...the only catch is you have to put with lower quality feeds sometimes, and lots of searching for streams that work, there is no easy to use channel guide or search function

Roku and similar machines are starting to offer some decent programming. If you can connect your PC/Laptop to your TV there are a metric ****-ton of sites to stream movies/TV from for free...
