I've been debating the merits of switching from cable/satellite to streaming video from the web. The Roku box is designed to do this (click here for Roku site). For a one time fee, you hook up this box and can stream or access TV on demand. The Roku site advertises many free stations, but their website is terrible in terms of giving actual information.
What would I get for free stations that have actual value?
My biggest fear is that I will miss many Michigan games. I do not see the BTN To Go listed on their channels. I do see ESPN listed as a free channel. Has anyone here braved the risk of missing large swaths of the football season to save $80 a month in TV utilities? Though at $80 a month, I could theoretically go to the bar for 12 games and still save money by not paying subscription fees to DirecTV.
It does not seem like most network channels have jumped into this for live broadcasting. I'd like to know if anyone out there has a Roku box, and how it actually works.
