I have a pair of gen 2 boxes and I think I am going to do this. 25% off is not too shabby for those with a gen 1. The Extend streamer is very good.
Shipped my STV2s today. It cost me $72 counting shipping. Best price I found for two Extends is $335.48, so I saved $263. Subtract that from my $545 RSS spend, and it cost me $282 for four years of Simple TV. That comes to $5.87/month. That is for streaming television away from home, around the house, and to/from a friend's place. I feel better no
Got my Extends. They work as expected/advertised. No free Fire TV app, no free Roku app. You need to pay for an app to use these. I'll probably wait on a free Plex Pass trial to give that a go. In the mean time, for those who jumped on the TiVo offer, a Mini via a Powerline adaptor seems to be a pretty good wireless option.
Turns out the Roku Media Player app supports DLNA devices like the HDHR Extend. I can stream more than half my channels with this app. Not sure why the rest do not work. Sticking with the Mini for now.
