But we don't have IPTV in this country. And now that we had to move the Sony LCD from the wall because of some renovations we can't watch TV or cable anymore.
Even a service such as Sling Media would help - just plug their box to the cable modem adapter and get the output over wi-fi on the other side of the house.
But not in this country.
I understand we can have this functionality if we add a specific video card to a PC and configure the right software, hack a couple of XML files and things would be up and running.
But I don't want thing that require an electronic engineer to get working. I want simple things. A box that transmits wirelessly to my media centre or connects to my wireless network directly for streaking. We want consumer grade stuff.
We need TV tonight. The father-in-law is coming for dinner, and I am sure he will want to watch TV news at 6pm - Sir Ed died today, the news, the news!
The solution? Go out and buy rabbit ears for $20. Not even all those gigabytes of RAM, terabytes of storage, computing power and bandwidth can help if our providers don't come to sense and offer some decent modern entertainment service.
