Nice alternative offering, I see this being huge and drawing competition.

For anything not live/sports, the slickest setup I've seen is still the seedbox streaming straight to xbmc/kodi.

>And, it's done. As of 5 minutes ago, Louise is watching live-action streaming MNF using SlingTV subscription credentials on Roku's WatchESPN channel. Full content, not highlights or otherwise gutted/crippled.

I have the same set up. Got rid of cable a couple weeks ago, going with SlingTV on my Roku. ESPN being on there was the main selling point for me. Already have Netflix, might add Hulu soon.

I stepped away from broadcast TV about eight years ago; relying on torrents, the BBC iPlayer and over the last two years, a paid subscription to MotoGP.

I currently run KooRaRoo on Windows as a DLNA media server, and have just set up two Amazon Fire TVs as clients, replacing two XBox 360s. The Amazon Android boxes are dirt cheap, tiny, silent and support live streaming apps, Netflix, the iPlayer and sideloaded Kodi/XBMC.

Using Kodi means I have far better video format and subtitle support than on the XBoxes. KooRaRoo was chosen to work around the XBox limitations, so I may not need it going forward.

It's far from perfect, Doc. I think the biggest issue is building a big enough pipe at their server end --but reddit likes to whine & b###h about them anyway.

G just announced Chromecast support

Yeah, it isn't perfect. The interface on Roku is pretty horrible and the mobile app is even worse. They will need to beef up their on demand selection to make up for the lack of DVR you get with cable too. They have some shows but not full catalogs. But it gets me 90% of the way there with about 20% of the cost of cable so that is a decent trade off in my mind.
