    Thanks to “Dan” for this informative post. i have a streaming device at home which i bought from “pigflytech” at works very good.
    i can watch lots of TV channels and can get access in online through my TV so, that is why i love this device a lot.
    it has no monthly billing hazards for its users. I suggest others to use this device to develop their streaming system.

    What I miss is the Google-TV approach, where I didn’t have to change inputs on the TV since the Cable box plugged into the Google TV and then to the HDMI input on the TV. There doesn’t seem to be any device available that doesn’t require switching inputs to the TV to switch between Cable box and streaming box.
