I want to replace cable tv and want commericial free music.

by Steven_Storlazzi / February 19, 2014 1:03 PM PST

I am quitting cable tv and would like to hear about suggestions on ways to receive signal over internet for tv & music.

I am ready with my computer, sound system & tv.

Now I need good subscription web sites.

I am quite surprised with the quality of "Rabbit TV" for $10 per year you can not beat it.

Many options

Chromecast is just one of the many and surely the next media transition away from broadcast TV. Many USB and HDMI devices that rely on a fast WIFI connection are available with NETFLIX and many other options. A subscription is required for most. I dumped sat TV for OTA and a fast internet (cable) and the users choice of usage and fees. No more whole home junk with a huge monthly bill. The outside antenna is an initial cost of $200. and will last 20 years without trouble. That's the local channels, usually at least one of each four major networks with first run content. The marriage between a PC and the HDTV is problematic for some in getting each to recognize the other and accepting media and its possible Dolby content.

Plenty of options

Got a half a day? Wink

Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon would be the heavy hitters for streaming video (paid). plenty of other small players.

Spotify, Pandora, Rdio, LastFM are some fun options for your listening enjoyment.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
