This is all new to me. I'm planning on getting a streaming device for my new network (looking at the Shield TV from NVIDIA at the moment) since then I can stream files from anywhere to my TV. I've never owned one of these before, but since you need a cable subscription anyway, which requires a cable box from the cable company, what is the best way to set things up so that the streamer is the primary device, not the box? (I'd much rather stream Fox News Network from Android than from Cable). A colleague of mine was evidently able to eliminate the cable box all together by streaming to his xBox One. So, how, in a typical network where the goal is to save money (since I don't watch TV on a regular basis; just like to put on the news in the morning and then throw on a show every once in a while, or if I had people over) what is the simplest way to ensure that all devices play nice with one another?
