It's cheaper than cable.
Exactly why I've got it! Between Netflix and the internet, you can pretty much watch anything on demand. (and if you really need to watch more than that... maybe go take a walk outside instead!)
Not impossible at all. Both AT&T and Knology's internet-only services provide ESPN3.com. Which, while I dislike the business model (I don't think non-sports-viewing internet users need to support ESPN's empire), got all but three KU games that weren't broadcast OTA last year.
Yeah some specific sports stuff you can't get.. I'm not really into pro sports so it's not a big deal to me personally. For the occasional collegiate game that's not streaming online, I'll head to the bar. More and more sporting events are offered online every season though it seems.
And as Maxcrabb says below.. HD antennae.. I do use one of those as well and can almost always get the local networks enough to get whatever 'important' game is on..
And you can always buy an over-the-air antenna. It'll pick up hi-def signals for the big 3 networks, plus a couple pbs channels. They're only $20-$30.
That's why we got it. I don't watch sports so that doesn't bother me. It will be nice when netflix has more options on their instant view though. Sometimes their movie selections get kind of crappy.
Netflix, Hulu, and each network's streaming site pretty much allows you to watch anything. There's also the local library.
Netflix is cheaper then the cable on demand and if you can't find it on Netflix it is still cheaper to drive to the video store then cable on demand!!!
Off subject, but nothing about Kanrocksas yet in the ljw? Music festival 30-40 minute drive from Lawrence, hundred thousand people, not note worthy enough for an update?
Used to. Couldn't quite get the hang of rewindin' them.
You realize there is a difference between Netflix and the site you mention... mainly royalties and rights for the content...
Not that i'm above going to ch121 when I missed Fringe but don't want to wait until the next day to stream it from Fox. I'm just saying a payed service is a little more dependable, and won't give you malware.
As a grad student, I don't watch enough TV to get my money's worth. I subscribe to Netflix and am fine with missing the shows I once thought were a must watch. I love following KU, so it's not hard to find a sport's bar or a friend who has access to the games.
p>btjunkie.org You can get any movie free. New to DVD or still in theaters.
Very cool site. Did you know that at the top of it you can switch the language to english??
Thanks for sharing!
Between Hulu prem and Netflix, we ditched our expensive DISH service and haven't missed it a bit!
If I had to choose between Knology's Bronze Level at $61.90/mo (recent unannounced price increase with absolutely NO increased channels) w/o a digital or HD outputs supporting only one TV; Or Netflix unlimited streaming of TV and movies to all my TV's or computers, for $7.99/mo or $17.99/mo with an added 2 Blu-Ray disks out at a time, I would kick Knology to the curb very quickly! If it wasn't for the live News and Business channels I would have been gone long ago.
Have a Roku box and stream Netflix to my flat screen. with my router. Works great. $9.00 a month. There is an Netflix app for phone or computer where you can sort out the on line Netflix by date of the movie ect or by number the customer ratings.
Internet + Netflix is cheaper than cable TV which has commercials and isn't on demand.
Anything new not on Netflix can be Redboxed and everything else is at Liberty Hall. It just seems silly to pay for cable.
