Okay so I came across this and wanted to see if anyone ha tried this. I have read some reviews where this is legit. I could get this and cancel my cable bill and it would save me a lot of money. Basically its where you buy the software and download it. From there you can watch cable tv straight from your computer. Here is a link with some more info: http://www.satellitedirect.com/ http://www.nodishnetwork.com/ The ones I am looking at is the first two, Satellite Direct and No Dish Network. Also, If I decide to do this and it works well what i would do it buy a cheap computer to use as my media center to connect to my hdtv so that i can watch these channels on my big tv. I would assume that a mac mini would be my best choice. My question is all i would be using the mac mini for is to stream this satellite software and possibly netflix. Which mac mini would work best for just being used as a media center and thats it? I would like one with hdmi out or minidisplay out because i have the adapter..
