I recently learned about some options as alternatives to traditional cable television. Sometimes I'm not sure if paying $80-$90 extra a month for a large number of unused channels is justified. It really is nice having the optional channels to watch if ever needed, but I usually don't.
The cost savings over time are attracitve, compared to paying the monthly cable television fees, so I am still debating to see if some of these options whould be best for me and my family.
This article by Jason D. O'Grady & David Morgenstern on ZDNet, explains some of the better options currently out there.
Looks like Apple TV, Rok XDS and Boxee Box may be the better options currently.
