Re: New Amazon Subscription Service?

Sounds like typical corporate bureaucracy & bad internal communications, to bad you couldnt get the original CSR back on the line as she may have been able to get you some more info. so we could crack this case open:-) Or she may have already told him what she knew. It does sound like the left ...

Re: ROKU - HuluPlus Problems

I've had similar problems on Hulu Plus and also escalated it to their support staff. They told me others were experiencing similar issues. The only tangible advice I've been given to date is to restart programs (you do this through History) but that's a pain. When I start having problems, I leave th...

Re: "Cord Cutting Years Away for "Normal" People?"

I will always be thankful for our library system. I've been surprised by how few people seem to know that you can take DVDs and VHS cassettes out of the library. Even with Netflix, I still use it. Some of the content I'm interested in hasn't made it to DVD yet and this allows me to watch it . It's ...

Re: "Cord Cutting Years Away for "Normal" People?"

I think you used the right word. You have to be motivated to want to leave cable/satellite. Would the normal person become motivated after using streaming? The study didn't answer that question either. I'd personally like to know. It's a good question but motivation can come from many places, not j...

Re: "Cord Cutting Years Away for "Normal" People?"

I chose to cancel my satellite service in October and haven't looked back once. In addition to a Roku in my living room, I also have an HTPC (Mac Mini). I have a Roku, Boxee Box and Apple TV (jailbroken to run Plex client) in my bedroom and once my neighbor is finished trying out my old Roku, I'll s...

Request for NFB channel on Roku

The National Film Board of Canada ( http://www.nfb.ca ) has about 1500 films, clips and trailers online that are available for free for personal use. Apps already exist for the iPhone, the iPad and even Boxee. How about making a NFB channel for the Roku? True, I could (and have ) subscribed to their...

Re: Hulu Plus Update

Hulu's been having a tremendous number of troubles over the past five days (cc out of sync, audio out of sync, extra commercial breaks, connection issues after rewinding or fast forwarding, starting at the beginning for the first few seconds and then jumping to the correct sport, etc.). I finally wr...

Re: Roku and VPN

You can also look into a WiTopia's Cloakbox. I don't have personal experience with it but it looks like it might be an easy answer.
