I'm running into resistance with my wife about dropping the cable. She still wants to watch the cable reality shows like "Real Housewives of New Jersey," "Intervention," and so on.

I've pointed out to her that those shows are available on Using software from, we can stream hulu (and a bunch of other stuff) thru our Wii gaming system directly onto our TV.

Between that, Netflix (the streaming movies feature is VERY nice) and the local OTA channels (ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, Ion, My Network, 8 PBS stations and the independents), I don't think we're losing anything we care about. And all we'd pay for is about $9.75 per month for Netflix as opposed to the $80.00 or so we're shelling out for cable, a DVR box, and a few HD & premium channels.

But it calls for pressing a few more buttons occasionally, so my wife is still resisting saving $70+ per month...
