The big bang theory

Postby Turbojoe » Fri Aug 23, 2013 8:42 pm

The Big Bang Theory. I'm 100% addicted and am in need of crisis intervention! One of the VERY few things I miss since "cutting the cable". The CBS website has a few OLD episodes. Would there happen to be a channel out there that specializes in TBBT?
Thanks guys.

I don't know if the show is streaming anywhere, but if you can get an antenna, CBS is free OTA in every market, and most markets have a channel showing the program in syndication.

Also, in the US Netflix has seasons 1-6 (2007-2012) available on disc.

The problem for me is that I'm back to working nights again and don't get a chance to see it OTA now.

Not a Roku answer, but a good choice for a cable cutter. Being that you have OTA ability. Get a series 3 Tivo w/lifetime subscription, less than $300 on ebay with no further fees. Past seasons are also on some independent stations. I agree, it is a great show, very funny, even though the title is stupid.

Not exactly one that "specializes" in TBBT, but someone is currently streaming TBBT on JustinTV.

Which simulates the quality and experience of watching a show through your neighbor's window. Not a good solution.

Or use your computer as a DVR with an HD HomeRun tuner. There are a lot of ways to do it. But I agree that being able to record live OTA television to watch later is a vital component to any cord-cutting setup.

Another option for Roku users is Simple.TV. It's $150. You need to add an external USB drive for storage, and it must connect to your network via LAN cable. Service subscription is $50/year or $150/lifetime.

It's a single tuner device, and plays back through any Roku on your system (limit 5).

It's not as polished as Tivo, but it's functional, and cheaper overall.

Just found that. Good enough for me plus it's free!

Just for completeness, Amazon has Seasons 1-6 available for purchase through Instant Video (they're not exactly cheap, however; especially the later seasons).

If you're going for completeness, you should probably also point out that Vudu has them as well (for purchase).

Very true. I always forget Vudu does tv as well as movies. It's a mental block thing :).

Woot.com has the simple.tv for sale on their "tech woot" area today. Regular price with a free lifetime subscription.
If I'd got my lazy butt up and got an antenna working, I'd probably snap one up.
