Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Yes
We don't bother with an antenna and strictly watch Netflix and Amazon Prime.

In retrospect I would probably get a Roku. Our current crop of devices includes:

1) PS3 - runs both Netflix and Prime. Generally what we use given its CPU speed. Video streams without a hitch. Occasional PSN annoyances.
2) Apple TV - doesn't run Prime (bastards), no longer runs Netflix because it's old. Boo.
3) Wii - runs Netflix but has a slight hitch in the video due to CPU.
4) Fire TV Stick - bought on a lark for $20, runs both Netflix and Prime but also hitches occasionally.

We also stream music for which the Fire TV Stick is pretty good. It runs Pandora, Spotify, and Prime Music (natch).

I suggest getting the newest gen device within your budget due to the video hitch problems on older CPUs.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New What about storage? And/or live TV?
There are a half-dozen series on OTA and basic cable that we currently record. If they can be streamed on-demand from Prime that might not be an issue.

New Dunno, we don't watch that stuff
Basically if it isn't on Netflix/Prime we don't care. And since we only stream, storage is a non-issue.

That said, there's Hulu I guess.
