BUMP! I've finally sucked it up and dumped DirecTV. I hooked up a computer to my TV, bought a wireless remote and mouse, and we're set to stream Netflix and anything else that will let us stream it.
I guess all of our discounts with DirecTV finally ran out. We were spending $93 per month on TV. Now we're spending $8. The way I see it, I now have $85 a month to spend on movies, downloads, Amazon, etc.
Someone tell me about MLB.tv. We're definitely going to go without satellite until April, but then I have a tough decision to make. I'm willing to give MLB.tv a try, but I've heard a lot of people complaining about the blackout rules. What am I looking at during the regular season? What about the playoffs? Those who have it, what has your experience been like with quality, etc?
Edit: OK, so I did a search on MLB.tv blackout rules, and I guess all the Cards and Royals games are blacked out here. Is that true? If so, this is likely a short-term situation.
If you're in the STL Metro, yup, the Cards would be blacked out MLB.tv (pending the Supreme Court? or whoever, is looking into MLB's blackout laws).
Sports are the biggest thing you'll miss w/ cord cutting. That and HBO shows...
Why can't we have Ala carte cable/satellite/internet TV?
Congress should be looking into that.
