Cord Cutters: Turn Your PC Into a Media Center

cord cutters episode 9

Here’s how easy dropping your cable subscription can be — you don’t even need a set-top box like the Roku or Apple TV to watch media on your television. With the right combination of cables to connect your laptop to your TV, you can be living the high life — Cord Cutters style.

In the newest episode of our weekly web series Cord Cutters, Janko shows just how easy it is to make your home PC into a media center. The secret ingredient? The Boxee app.


In addition, I plug the web series Oh, Inverted World, an intriguing dramedy about being in your twenties and the moon falling into the earth (a concept that, for some reason, gives Ryan the giggles).

This week’s episode does lack an interview with a cord cutter, but look for one next week — because we still definitely want your stories about life sans a cable subscription. So drop us an email or hit us up on Twitter to let us know what you think!
