Very cool! We just got a new computer that is dedicated almost entirely to the TV. Between Netflix, which charges what I consider to be a nominal fee if one utilizes all of the perks, the ever-growing number of sources and databases that provide free television programs, movies, and documentaries, and the fact that many broadcast channels like PBS offer everything online, or nearly so, we are going nearly 100% online for our entertainment and news. I hope to cancel the Direct TV soon; as soon as our viewing domain is covered completely. There are still a few things that I can’t find online but that improves by the day - there is no doubt that online viewing has come of age. So, we bought a computer built for online viewing - HDMI port and the latest hs graphics card included. The latest in router technology finally made it possible to setup a wireless network that reaches my office. So this simplifies life even more. This is truly a cause for celebration, at least for me. We got everything last night and enjoyed our first night of watching what we want, when we want, with all the conveniences associated with regular television viewing. While we have been doing this for some time using a laptop connected to the TV, it was a pain without the wireless mouse. Not to mention that I don’t like dragging my work computer around any more than I have to. I would have to say that this is probably the most dramatic change in the notion of home entertainment that I’ve seen in my lifetime. It struck me that we are now getting our television through the telephone – A DSL connection. Not so long ago that would have seemed very exotic! This is particularly useful to us as we are surrounded by hills and trees that have always made television reception difficult. We have no access to cable. And even with Direct TV it has taken a ridiculous amount of effort and money to get a good signal to the house. One even can find a couple of threads about this – one from several years ago, and one recent thread - in the Electrical Engineering forum! It has been a real pain in the butt! But worse than that, as technology continues to evolve, I am faced with a new set of problems for each generation of technology. It had literally become the never-ending saga. Were it not an interesting problem I probably would have given up long ago. Online TV beats this problem, finally. YEAH!!! Between Netflix, and the free services like Hulu, Fancast, YouTube Shows, Google Videos, and TV.com, the current selection of free and legal programming is quite large.
