Yes, my laptop to Samsung TV works great using either cable.  But, we will have to get rid of Comcast to work it always.

I'm looking into it. No one I know has tried it so far.
I went back and checked, and the live local channels I can get is from Hulu.
You go to their site and type in your zip code and it lists all the channels you get, including the live local channels.
If I can get a decent speed from Centurylink I might try it on one little used TV.
If it works, I'll add an Ooma voice over internet phone service. If that works, I'll add the other two TVs, and bye bye Xfinity/Comcast. Smiley Wink Cheesy Grin Tongue
That's what I'm planning now.
It can all change after I talk to Centurylink.  We shall see. Undecided

If it is a short explanation, how do you hook them together?

I pay a bunch each month for Direct TV.  That is our only entertainment so it is justified but if I can get the same thing cheaper, I am taking it.  If any of you find a good substitute for getting the programs that are normally only on Satellite/Cable packages, please post or send me a private note.  This is high on my list to do.  Hulu looks pretty good on the surface and I am investigating that.  Let's get an "Information Group" started to help each other.  Thanks,

It appears you connect one of these type thingies to each TV HDMI port, and the programs are streamed via wifi router.

FWIW--
This is a schematic showing what I think will work, IF I can get DSL good enough to handle it.
My guess is that getting each piece setup and working will be the real headache.
