Moving from cable to internet video

While I don’t always agree with Nick Carr’s opinion, I liked his article in the NY Times magazine today. He begins to notice a shift in his tv viewing habits from cable to internet-streamed content. Most of the video I watch is from the internet too (except for live sports of course, which is often exclusive to cable/broadcast).
Tonight I watched a few episodes of 30 Rock on Hulu. I never catch these shows at their scheduled time, so I hook up my laptop to my tv to stream shows from Hulu or Netflix.
It can be clunky and annoying to hook up my laptop to my tv and I’m not that enthusiastic about buying a dedicated Roku or Boxee device for my tv — but it sounds like these are the short-term solutions until internet connected tvs (with the ability to run apps) become commonplace.
