    I cut the cord in 2008. I have a Roku 2 XD as part of my setup ( and I love it. I’m able to stream movies and shows from Amazon and Netflix. There’s tons of great stuff on there like YouTube, Pandora, and of course iTunes. :) The nicest part about the Roku is that they are cheap enough that you can stick one on every TV in the house. The fact that it’s wireless is nice too if there’s a room that’s hard to run cable to. I can’t recommend the Roku enough.
