    It's also useless if you have cut the cable TV cord like we did years so. Huge savings and totally worth it, in out opinion. I don't get why there has to be a middleman for TV distribution though? Why can't we just purchase content directly from ESPN, HBO, whomever? Where is THAT plan? The whole reason people are ditching pay TV is that people are tired of not having ala carte style channel choices. Hoping someday this changes.....until then, bleh!
