NBN is happening soon and as it will be HFC all the way speed will not be a problem. Rest of the very short street already use it.

Doing some other wiring changes at the same time.

I want to get Netflix but my 2008 tv obviously needs a box of some kind. It does have HDMI so can connect to an Apple TV box.

The tv is perfectly good, has hd and everything I currently need except MPEG-4. That only restricts me in terms of channel 78 and Freeview.

So do I spend $300 on Apple TV or $2000+ on a new TV ?

I can't come up with any compelling reasons to ditch the TV until there's free to air content I want that's broadcast in MPEG-4. That's most unlikely as the spectrum looks like being sold for mobile phones.

If it's pirated ...... does that means it comes with a parrot?

 

That being the case, you could kill two birds with one, um parrot.

Too much typing but essentially Minix sells hardware (like a mini computer set-top box with remote) which you install and run Kodi from. 

 

Kodi is the latest iteration of the former XBMC (X-Box Media Centre) software which is an open-source file sharing platform - not illegal. 

 

There are add-ons (or apps) that are available Kodi which allows you to stream movies, tv shows and sports. Live sports is difficult to find the right add-ons for, however I have enjoyed great success with TV shows, network specific shows and movies.  

 

$2-400 outlay for the box and you are rocking and rolling. 

 

Heaps of Youtube videos on the most effective add-ons to install or "add on" to Kodi to allow you to access the content you want.

With that said, I forked out for an updated smart TV - replaced one that I bought in 2008. 

 

Smart remote, internet connectivity the whole shebang. Quite happy with it as well actually.

I bought a Q-box off ebay to run kodi. Around $80.

My smart tv was too old and stupid - 3 yrs old.
