Sounds as if Kodi release is not far off.
Without a smart TV, it looks as if some type of "box" is needed, unless using some type of VGA, SVideo, or HDMI cable to connect to the computer.
I've gotten attached to the Roku3 remote, and the speed of searches and connections.
Will look to see what content will be available.. I assume that Kodi will interface with the Nowhere TV, which looks to me to be the first practical streaming content to fill in the local channels, lost after cable cutting.
One needs to be semi tech savvy. But Google will show you everything you can do with XBMC.
Without a special box, you need to hook up your computer to TV.
There are well over 1000 3rd party XBMC "add-ons" you can download. This is the flexibility I was referring to. But for the most, myself included, Mashup add-on is all you need. The add-on has channels for movies, sports channels, live TV stations, ..... , all in one add-on. Then there are other mashup add-on wannabees like Navi-X. Pretty cool stuff. Be careful though. If you are tech curious, you may end up tinkering with it for days instead of watching content.
