It takes a different way of thinking but most of the broadcast stations have streaming media on their pages.
I've got a Mac Mini connected to my home theater and that into the big TV as a monitor. CBS, ABC, NBC, ESPN, available for college football games, in any case. I've never much cared about other stuff really.
Another thing to consider is a Roku. Hulu, Netflix, SECOndemand (yeah, did I mention I like college football?) are all available as channels and you can watch a goodly chunk of programming on one of those or the other.
