Ditching Pay TV

January 9th, 2011

If you can live without all the channels, off-air Digital TV is just as great looking as HD Cable or Satellite service. For re-runs of TV series and movies, add a streaming Netflix account and you have a nice, and cheaper, substitute. Using Windows Media Center (which is included in Windows 7) and an Xbox360 on your TV will still give you a cable-like experience with TV listings, show recording, and more. Your digital music collection and DVDs (if ripped) can also be streamed throughout your home. Enough people have asked me about what it takes so I made a quick and dirty video about it.

You may wonder how I go from DEVO to Iron Maiden. I like what I like and that’s all there is to it.

Gnarcade – more old school gaming love

Portal isn’t actually old school, but it works well with the video. Perhaps the tired Tony Hawk series can take a lesson from this. Amped 4 maybe?

This show is amazing! If you haven’t had the chance to see it live (I have 3 times now) be sure to check it out on PBS in August.
