My wife and I are looking to cancel our satellite subscription and go for a streaming-only setup. I was looking into Roku and Boxee, when I realized that my Samsung LN40C650 can connect to the Internet and stream from NetFlix, Hulu Plus, etc.
I bought the USB antenna and connected to my wireless and things work...pretty much. The streaming can get spotty, even though the Samsung connection test says that we're running at about 4.5Mbps. Unfortunately, we're out in the sticks so we can't get better than that.
The question is: Do the apps work differently for the Roku or Boxee Box than they do for Samsung? Is there ANY benefit to going with a box as opposed to using the Samsung apps?
