I really want to get rid of the tv all together. But, DH has five shows he just "can't live without". I found that they can all be viewed over the internet, but he doesn't want to sit in front of the computer. He would rather watch from the couch. Is there a cheap and simple way to connect internet episodes to my TV?????
I cannot complain about this. He grew up watching a lot of TV, so it is what he is used to. He is very supportive of all of my lifestyle interests (i.e. homeschooling, homebirthing, simple living, etc.). So, I would like to compromise with him since he has done so much compromising for me.

TIA!!!

Wow, I never knew about those!

If you have the space, you can do what we did which is to put a couch in the computer room. It faces the computer desk from the side, so when we watch, we turn the monitor and speakers to face it. Works perfectly
