Hey men and women of [H].com I am in quite the dilemma here and I was hoping some of you have been through this and can help me and the wife out. So all of our promotions from Direct Tv have expired and we went from paying 38.00 to 90.00. I am also at the end of my contract and can cancel the service without any penalties. I have called the other bigbox in my location, Time Warner Cable and they want the same amount of $. I am kinda at a cross roads here and not because 90.00 is killing me, but because TV is not worth 90.00. It not killing my bank account either, I just don't want to pay 90.00 for TV. So is there a way to get all of my shows that I watch from any other source? I have heard about HTPC software but I have never used it. I wouldn't be against building a HTPC either if I could get all of my shows. I am still looking into a HULU/Netflix/Amazon combination. What is your guys experience with this? There has to be another way?!
