We haven’t had cable for a while, and I get a lot of questions about how we still have so much TV to watch. The answer is a high-def antenna and Hulu Plus.  Previously, it was invitation only for testing purposes, but I was able to nab one and we’ve been using it for a few months now.  Basically, it’s the same thing as Hulu, but by paying a subscription fee you get access to more episodes (like all 8 seasons of a show instead of the current season or just the last few episodes) and you can watch most of the content in HD…which is a must when you’re using it on your living room TV as your main source of content.

As of today, it’s now available to the public and they dropped the price to $7.99 a month!   I encourage everyone to try it because it’s a heckuva lot better than paying $60+ a month for cable or satellite and we really never run out of content.  Lisa even gets her HGTV shows!

If you’d like to try, you can use this link here to get 2 free weeks (and I get 2 free weeks as well, in the interest of full disclosure).  But I totally think it’s worth every penny!

UPDATE 1/22/11: Link was broken but should work now.  Sorry!


I believe I first got the idea from, which was probably a repost from instructables or DIY…nevertheless, I was able to use an old credit card, heated with a torch lighter and cut just right, to make a remarkably sturdy stand for my Droid.  Makes it very nice for using as a desk clock.  No mote need for a clock radio!
