OK, since we’re talking about television options

particularly via broadcast-over-antenna, and life-after-cable, I have a question. We’ve been very happy with our disconnect from cable, but less than pleased with our use of the digital antenna. We just don’t get good reception here, thanks to our geography I think. Being on the other side of a hill sort of limits our options. So now we’re looking into tapping into streaming video over the internet. Kathy, your comments about Roku may have answered some of our questions.

But here’s a very specific question. There’s a series on HBO that we’ve sort of fallen in love with (Game of Thrones, for all you sci-fi/fantasy fans out there), and we just devoured the first season on DVD. The second season’s DVDs aren’t slated to be available until April of 2013, but the third season starts in March. We’ve been trying to figure out how to watch via streaming video. I know that HBO has generally clamped down on such things. We actually looked into buying a membership just to HBO, but geez it’s $18/month which is rather pricey for a single show. And even if we didn’t object to the price, our internet carrier wasn’t listed as one of their options, so we can’t get it anyway.
