Default Playon.tv...?

Anyone use this service? It seems like a good deal, $50 for a lifetime of streaming tv thru your gaming console, mine's a Wii, via Hulu and other channels. Sale ends tomorrow, supposedly, so I'm trying to make the decision asap. If it works well enough I'm gonna cancel sat tv.

If I may quote HF, from Dadstock,
Any and all input would be appreciated.
Thank you all...

What about Roku? Is there a monthly charge once you've bought the hardware? We're cancelling the satellite today, it's been decided, now to figure out an alternative, if any.

I think Roku is a bridge to services like Netflix and Amazon. Look into amazon prime, I think it's $80 a year and includes their streaming service (plus you get free 2 day shipping for a year.)

From that CNET article it looks like there's a free 14 day trial period
