The cable companies took over the government. But you don't have to rent their box. You can use this instead! SMALL VICTORIES!
This HDHomeRun Prime is a TV tuner and cable box. It works with your existing cable connection and/or TV. Once you connect it to your home router, you can access and record TV from anywhere in your home. No matter what you think right now, this is going to be used in the following ways.
1) The Bathroom. Make faces if you want, but at some point, you're going to be carrying your laptop in there with you. With a HDHomeRun Prime, that won't be a problem. Unless you get caught. Then you'll have to explain yourself to all the people who think that's gross.
2) The Backyard. Oh, is it a nice day? Do you want to lie on the grass and tan? But you also want to watch the game? Well, look at that, the HDHomeRun allows you to watch that TV show on your tablet. Certainly easier than hauling the sun indoors.
3) The Kitchen. Previously, you'd need an elaborate series of mirrors if you wanted to watch the living room TV while cooking at the stove. Now? Prop up your laptop and get cookin'.
4) The Bathroom Again. Yeah, you might want to talk to a doctor. You seem to be in there a lot.
