In service of the greater cause of saving money for a downpayment, cable TV went dark this week in our home.
We're now getting our TV fixes from Netflix and Blockbuster streamed through a blu-ray player. I want to get some kind of box set up to stream other online content, but I don't need anything too fancy - no torrents, no obscure video formats. Basically, Hulu Plus and shows that are only available on network's websites.
It doesn't look that hard to get Hulu going - a Roku box is cheap and looks pretty easy to set up. Where I'm having trouble finding my direction is shows that are only available to view directly on a network's website (SWMBO likes cheesy CW shows, what can I say? ) I'm guessing you would need a media pc with a proper browser to access these, right? Is there any off-the-shelf option (or hack) that can get to those shows?
