New Mac Mini = Justin Gets Rid of Comcast Cable… Finally!

So… everyone is talking about a potential new Mac Mini. This is definitely something that I’d love to see happen. This is a computer that hasn’t been updated by Apple in a long time.

I’d love to take a new Mac Mini, load it with something like Boxee, hook that up to my television, and once and for all DUMP COMCAST CABLE.

It’s kind of funny because a few months worth of my cable bill would pay for the Mac Mini, if it stays along it’s current pricing lines.

What do you guys think? Would you do it?

  1. Definitely! I’ve got a 3 year old mac mini which i don’t use much so I’m going to try boxee out tonight

  2. I’ve been doing that for a bit. It’s been working fairly well, the only problem is that hulu support has been removed so you’re forced into other channels for procuring most tv.

  3. DC is a great town for over-the-air Digital HDTV. All of the stations broadcast from the same set of towers in NW off Wisconsin Ave. You can get all of the networks, plus at least 5 PBS stations. Just get a good directional antenna.

    I use my main PC as a PVR (Beyond TV for PC) and have a cheap Dell off of eBay at three different TVs in my house. I don’t XBMC or anything like that, but I don’t find it too difficult to type in Hulu.com when I need to.

    So go for it. Save yourself a fortune in cable bills. I don’t think you’ll miss it.

  4. I second on the Hulu experience. I am excited to check on the Mac Mini and see the improvements.

  5. If you are looking for a media player that supports Hulu check out Plex Media. It is similar to Boxee but you can play Hulu through it. I just ordered a Mini and I plan on dumping Time Warner. I ran a a little trial using my Mac Book pro attached to my tv using Plex & Boxee and it worked great. 5 months of no cable and the Mini pays for itself.
