Ditching cable TV and moving to online TV is a great idea, but no matter how you do it, you miss out on lots of broadcast TV (live news, sports, local programming). Sezmi may be the first service to fix that. Sezmi is a service based on a set-top box that not only streams video from the Web and from your PC, but also catches over-the-air local broadcast TV via a supplied in-home antenna. On the remote control, each family member has their own button, which will take them to their personal Sezmi channel--complete with on-demand shows tailored to their personal tastes. There's no need to worry about overloading the Sezmi, either, as each box is packed with a whopping 1TB for recorded shows. The service is in trials in the Los Angeles market now, but is expected to go nationwide later this year.
