Why buy Cable?

Posted by Jaaa!&, 23 November 2010 · 443 views

So, does one really need to buy cable? One gets a good sized television, either a Play Station 3 or Xbox 360, and a internet connection and one is good. One can run everything off of there 360 or PS3 if they have internet, take the following factors into hands:
  • One can look at Netflix movies thought either of there systems above and even the Wii. One has all movies about a year or so older at a click of a controller for what, about $8.00 a month compared to $50 to $120 for cable?
  • Hulu has Advertisements, get over it. Suck it up and go watch the newer episodes of one's favorite television shows one can't find on netflix. Hulu is trying to survive the down economy with the battle of On-Demand on cable and Netflix, will offer their services on 360 and PS3 if they don't already(not to sure about if they do or not).
  • Of course there are other ways to get the latest television shows that i will not mention, but if one does do it at your own risk. If one does, simply make sure there are correct formats, stick it on your flash drive and plug it in and there it is.
  • This will be another entry, but one can make the argument that buying a computer is not really neccesary, if one isn't looking to play games online.
On the other side of the spectrum, one doesn't really need to buy a PS3 or Xbox360, you can buy a computer and a good sized computer monitor and just bluetooth the screen and bam, one is able to watch tv on the big screen without cable or PS3, Xbox360


P.S.

Anyone want to argue this point further, feel free to send me a personal message.




I got the trial for Netflix and i maybe found 3 shows i was interested ( C & C Up in Smoke ftw :lol: )

Havn't tried the others though

i got this site for payper sports, a little blurry on larger screens but it works. ( just don't click on popups when you click on video (of course)."

Or you can buy a Network Media Player for like $69 (but the hard drive comes seperate with the PVR system) for streaming media <-- might be a bit tedious having to use your comp to stream.

There is also something called the Boxee Box HD. Box is based on the free Internet-based Boxee service, which rounds up videos from the Web and puts them in an easy-to-search user interface on your HDTV. Costs $199.99. < --- it is pretty much a Intel Atom with 1 GB ddr3 web streaming device

There are other similar media products like Apple TV ($99)
I dont have cable... i dont have time for it anyways.... =P i got a friend who has cable on his XBOX360! i used to have Netflix anyways

I've got Netflix on my PS3 and I enjoy watching the TV shows and movies uninterupted by pesky commercials.
