Yea I'd consider an antenna if I wasn't obsessed with CNN in HD, I probably watch that channel more than anything. Wolf Blitzer FTW! Not ready to cut the umbilical chord entirely yet. Maybe if cnn.com/live/ get's some really good streaming programming someday I'd feel more comfortable doing that.

I recently twittered about Comcast increasing my bill by the "standard" $5/yr service fee, when I called to uncover the mystery fee, I decided to par down my TV all the way back to basic. Comcast offers an Economy package which offers Comedy central / USA / TBS etc as well as the standard channels.

I don't get NESN and ESPN anymore which kind of stinks, but I deal.

To fill in the gaps I use Boxee, Hulu and Fancast.

I've got a Mac Mini hooked up to the TV so everything is integrated and working pretty great. I'd say go with a MacMini Boxee instead of an Apple TV. The Mini also works great w/ Front Row.

In response to Marshal, I got an EyeTV previously but my Comcast set top box would not play nice with it so I returned it.
