Does anybody here subscribe to or use an internet television service or program?

I am looking for something I can put on my laptop and get regular cable programs from it ie: history channel - fox news - military channel - espn etc.


Any recommendations and any ones to avoid??

I guess you don't already have cable TV.

A friend of mine uses this: Slingbox (http://www.slingbox.com/go/buy).

I have Netflix online. I pay $9.99 plus tax a month for unlimited movies and tv shows.
I love this, there are millions of movies on there and also both old and new TV shows.
It works great on my laptop and also Iphone for traveling. Plus I have a Ruku little box
so I can stream it wirelessly onto my big TV. That's my top recommendation. The only
thing it doesn't have is live news, but then you can see that online.

I have Netflix, just the streaming portion for 7.99. So far no complaints from me.

Also Netflix gives you a one month unlimited free trial period.
So you can try it out and cancel if you don't like it.

Is there a wireless device out there that will treat your television like a monitor? That way, you can sit with your laptop on the coffee table and stream internet content at your leisure.

Slingbox is the way to go, I can access anything on my home sat box or dvr

Million dollar idea.

Call it "Cut the Cable" and sell it in a spiffy bubble wrap at Best Buy for 49.95.
