Hi all,

I am sure various forms of this question have been repeatedly asked, but my target searches aren't helping, and browsing threads is getting overwhelming.

Here is what I want to be able to do (not much), what box will get it to me best?

I just got rid of cable, but still want to get good content on the hdtv (720p). I now use an antenna for OverAir (works really well!).

I would also like to use streaming netflix (there is also a BlueRay player on tv) at best possible quality.

Hulu would be nice

I would also like to watch the daily show (not on hulu, but on their own site).

Any suggestions? apple products I have to help with this... iphone 4, mbp, imac. None of them are located at the TV itself, and the TV area can only access the internet via wifi)

any help much appreciated.

Get the new apple TV for $99. Stream from you mac. Airplay from your iphone\ipad\itouch.

Hopefully run apps on it or stream apps to it. We will just have to wait and see if that is going to be possible.

If you only care about blu ray, netflix, and hulu, you can sell your blu ray player and buy a ps3. The ps3 can play blu ray, netflix in HD, and stream hulu. Right now, you have to have a psn plus membership and pay hulu 10 bucks per month but I'm sure that's much less than what you were paying for cable. You could also get a xbox 360 but the only problem is hulu won't be streaming on the xbox until later this year. Also you are losing blu ray with the xbox but the good thing is that the xbox will be streaming ESPN 360 by the end of the year.
