I've gone and built a reasonably powerful home media system using Plex. I have all of the DVD's and BluRay's ripped down and stored on the server and I also have a HD HomeRun Extend (dual tuner) connected to an HD antenna. I get about a dozen channels, including all four of the major networks in my local area. Since I have a lifetime PlexPass, I also have access to the PVR (DVR) functionality and can record from the HomeRun just as I would with any cable or satellite provider with their DVR box.
Since DirecTV won't give me a consistently reasonable price (I have to call once per year, agree to a 12-month term, and then they'll reduce my bill by 1/3), I want to dump regular TV service completely.
What I'm trying to understand is whether the Hulu streaming service or the upgraded service with cloud-based DVR and access to live TV would fit my needs better. So, I'm wondering if anyone here is a subscriber to the Hulu with Live TV plan and could offer any insight into how it's working for you.
