cord cutters holiday guide

Devices like the Apple TV, the Roku Box or the Boxee Box are definitely some of the hottest items this holiday season – but which one is the right present for your parents, your geeky cousin or even yourself? Which ones can help cut the cord, and which ones aren’t really a replacement for pay TV? Check out our suggestions in the first ever Cord Cutters holiday gift guide:


The good news is that there are plenty of options for different budgets, with Roku’s hardware starting at $60 and the Boxee Box selling for $200. There are even cool accessories, like a Homeplug-compatible networking set that makes it possible to stream video straight to your TV, Blu-ray player or set-top box via your house’s power lines.
