On the new “MacVoices” (http://www.macvoices.com) Katie Floyd talks about her research into the costs, benefits and compromises of disconnecting from cable, and shares her findings.

She covers the options for over-the-air video acquisition, what is and isn’t available on Hulu Plus and Netflix, and the costs of download options like the iTunes Store. On the hardware side, Apple TV, TiVo, HD antennas, dedicated streaming media boxes are covered, along with a dedicated Mac mini, remote control options and more.

“MacVoices” is an Internet show and podcast that delivers in-depth discussions with the most influential people in the Mac industry, as well as “the individuals who are out there making it happen on the front lines of the global Apple community,” according to host Chuck Joiner.
