I'm getting close. I use Netflix/Hulu via PS3/PlayOn but still want History, Discovery/Science, NatGeo channels. Crazy to spend $140/month (with 7Mbps) for only watching a few channels. I hope those channels offer their own streaming soon, or through PlayOn somehow. I'm close to cutting the cord anyway as it's stupid to pay this much for a few channels.
