We are tired of paying for cable because the only shows we watch that we are caught up to the current season on are:
How I Met Your Mother
Big Bang Theory
New Adventures of Old Christine
So the only one of these we can't watch free online or by antenna is The Tudors. If I must watch this as it comes out, I can do so from iTunes for much cheaper than our cable subscription. When you work out the time it takes to watch these shows, we are paying about $15 per hour for what we watch. That is ridiculous when I find myself reading, crocheting, watching Netflix Instant Watching, or playing Xbox 360 with most of my "fun" time. Dan uses his time reading, watching Netflix, losing to me on Rock Band, or playing WoW.
Now the advice…
Has anyone had experience with hooking up a laptop to a TV? We have a nice TV, and I really would rather watch TV there if I buy something on iTunes or stream it online. Is this difficult? I know the video quality might not be perfect, but we're OK with that.
If it helps, I have a 15" Aluminum PowerBook G4 PowerPC, in case anyone has experience with that computer.
