I have had and enjoyed a Roku streaming media box for four months, and have a Netflix subscription at $7.95 per month. I mostly watch documentaries so that I can avoid the Hollywood tripe. In addition, once one has at least one paid subscription service, there are literally hundreds of FREE channels that can be very enjoyable and many are commercial-free. One of my favorites is "tunein" free radio of every genre, and many of the radio channels have zero human intervention. I am done with network TV, and good riddance.
