Ok, so you purchased a cheap flat screen tv when cable transitioned to digital. Your cable bill is killing you, and you watch most of your movies on Netflix on your laptop.
The only problem with that is you need your laptop while you are watching movies, to check email and other important activities.
Here’s what you do:
Just run to Best Buy and pick up the (Western Digital) WD TV Live Plus HD Media player for $99.00 (buy their cheapest $26.00 HDMI cable if your television has an HDMI plug).
Then plug your broadband Internet cable into it.
At that point, you can play Pandora, Netflix, Blockbuster, Flickr among others.
You can also play media stored on an external drive, or off any of the computers hooked to your inhouse network (anything connected to your wireless router).
Then cancel your cable (but keep the broadband).
