And guess how many times we've used it... Apart from my test when I installed it... None!

Count yourself lucky then that it wasn't - Her: up all night watching stuff, You: alone in a large cold bed.

Actually had a friend buy one of those China "watch TV from around the world" android boxes (needs internet). They even were kind enough to set it up for us. About 10 minutes after they left I pulled it out and tossed it in the store room.
Few days later the wife asked where it went, my reply: we never watch TV anyway. (never been asked again.)
- Real reasons for removing it:
1. Don't watch broadcast TV - That is actually True
2. Only channels it has are all weird non western countries
3. Really didn't want a China mystery box attached to our home internet (nor anywhere where I have any of my own machines)
