Going off the grid... Dropping Directv after 11 or more years Found this unbeleivable deal Free DVR - Free HD - Free MRV - Free on demand What the heck was I paying more than $100/mo for? Switching to free OTA - HTPC with media share to get all the local networks and the internet, mostly free for cable shows on demand. Even if I get net-flix it is way way less... Or if I have to pay ala-cart for a show or red-box I will still be saving money... Iv'e had the htpc for years and never hooked it up to the ota antenna on my roof. My locals are crystal clear... I have vista windows media center - but changing to mediaportal. Why use a tivo when the htpc is FREE??
