This recession has caused many to take stock of their monthly spending habits. Many are looking for alternative sources of entertainment for themselves and their families. That could very well be the reason you are reading this article now. You have long wanted to sever the ties with the Cable and Satellite providers. Maybe you are concerned with quality, speed or local programming or perhaps all of the above. I have taken a moment to collect the research and provide you with three pretty nifty alternatives to cable and satellite television. 1 - Apple TV Apple TV is a small component in addition to your cable or satellite box that allows you to view preset programming from iTunes through Apple. Pros: Remote, Clear, Quality Picture, easy remote function, No Commercials, very few hardware issues. Cons: Not enough content to replace cable, no local programming, no tv tuner, all content is pay per view. No free programming. 2 - Google TV Google TV is a concept currently in development at Google, time tables online show anywhere from twelve to twenty-four months before launch. Information below from reports only. Please evaluate the information for yourself. Pros: Remote, Linux based OS(Android), mostly commercial free, reports say user will have access to all licensed online content, Netflix, HULU, Fancast to name a few. Cons: While Google seems to be opening up some free programming through its partners. It will probably stick to a new variation of either a monthly service fee like the cable companies or pay per view for the most desirable programming it is still unknown. You can assume that with partners like Sony and Logitech that they will need to keep profits robust and recurring. 3 - WhiteHatt Internet TV WhiteHatt is scheduled to launch in the Fall 2010. WhiteHatt is an Internet TV component that is advertised to replace cable. All the information is from the company website or third party sources and should be verified for accuracy. Pros: No Monthly fee, One Time Cost, Remote, Open Source Linux Based OS, Virus and Malware Free, HD Surround Sound, One wire hook up through HDMI w/ HD Audio and Video (where available), 'mostly' commercial free, major sports packages, No Internet TV Restrictions, Provides access to all free licensed online content, System has options for Blu-ray/DVD combo, Includes 100 hours of Media storage, you may add DVR/TV Tuner from base. System is rumored to be preloaded with a handful of built in television networks claiming thousands of free licensed television from all over the World. In addition to what is already available from NBC, CBS, FOX, and most of the major television networks. Cons: None of the claims on their website have been evaluated. There is a fair amount of information on the website WhiteHatt.Com, they also have a free entry to win one on the home page.
