Same here, recently purchased the Sony KDL50W800B 50-Inch Smart LED TV, awesome TV :)

Mostly stream from my Mac Pro or Synology, using Plex and the Amazon Fire TV.

I'm just linking an R-Pi running XBMC to a MyBook Live / MyCloud for primary storage.
It's certainly not a gaming machine, but I have other things for that; and for my money, I can't get a more silent, versatile streamer.

HD Sony Bravia 42" TV
NAS server Synology DS1010+ (Plex server, amongst other goodies) (power backup - APC smart UPS)
Roku 2 XS Home (Plex client)
Roku 2 XS at my mums (Plex client)

That's it, my data is quite safe with one disk tolerance (and remote backup)
I don't have fancy speakers

Je pense que la question signifiait «qu'est-ce que vous utilisez pour afficher la série de télévision", mais votre réponse m'a fait rire parce que cela fonctionne aussi.

I just needed to add some more info

I often try and download episodes from get_iplayer and watch them on Plex when I get time.
I find the 1 - 4 week catch up TV window is too short for my busy life.
Furthermore I record TV via DVBlink and a DVB stick sometimes, editing the ads out is a real pain though.

I wish the BBC would recognise that people have the right to watch TV when they have time.

I love the USA record TV service from Playon - PlayLater, which I do not use, I wish the UK had such a service.
The BBC are destroying any compatability with the get_iplayer in favour of a closed source project, ouch, what happened to the licence payers choice.
If anyone finds a service like PlayLater for the UK, please share :)

Via a Roku 3's on a 40" TLC and a 29" Element.

Hi there, it's my first post here, thanks! I just cut the cord on DirecTV and would like to know what my best bet is at viewing TVDB via Roku 3. I miss watching - I (Almost) Got Away With It.

Hulu Plus and YouTube. Netflix just dropped the series around Halloween. Also, XBMC / Kodi has USTV VoD, and both can use USTVnow. Technically, that last one is meant for expatriates, but really anyone can use it.

Thanks! I subscribe to Hulu+ & Amazon but a search only finds it on Vudu and Amazon and for a small fee. Found it on YouTube but I will have to look into "XBMC / Kodi has USTV VoD, and both can use USTVnow".
