    Called directv with every intention of canceling. These guys offered 30 off each month, a free 5 tuner HR34 receiver, and all the premiums free for 6 months. We have the cheapest package Entertainment, so that lowers monthly bill to 56 a month for 12 months. Initially i was offered NFL for free, but told them we had no interest, so maybe this is their plan b for those folks? As for NFL, i use my parents account on the PS3 NFL app.

    Couldn't turn that down so they get me 24 more months.. I got 7 tuners now. If for some reason 7 shows come on at once i want to see, i'm covered. One less worry..lol

    Would cut the cord if I could find a way to get news and local sports. I never watch cable unless it is for news and sports.

    I was thinking about doing this today but, the programs that I like aren't offered on Apple TV. I don't know if Directv channels are the same across the country. If they are, I usually watch 241-289, my kids watch their channels just above those plus I like the local stations and Speed. I ordered Netflix. I like that. Just signed on for a week trial of Hulu. I'll probably pick one and it will probably be Netflix.

    Overall I'm really enjoying the features of Apple TV. Technology just keeps getting better and better...

    I agree with everyone that cutting the cord for Internet TV would be awesome. However, there's no way to use just Netflix, Apple TV, and Internet to get the full range of entertainment. Directv, Apple TV, and Netflix cover all the bases for me.

    Finally did it. Netflix takes care of the Discovery, History, NatGeo content. I use airplay with the Fox Soccer (expensive subscription $170 year) and MLS apps (cheap subscription $36 year) for soccer and the Food Network app takes care of their content (though limited and not updated often enough). On demand (without having to think about DVR) and commercial free makes TV much more watchable.

    How do you get local sports with a jailbreak?

    You install all the streaming apps just like watching on the web

    Been debating this for a time now. We use Directv less and less everyday. The cost isn't worth the usage.
