When your cartridge is tapped out, exchange it for $10. $199.
Now you can literally “beam” most online video content straight to your TV — perfect for anyone fed up with the aggravations of cable television.

Surf the Web as with any other browser or type into the YouBeam search bar. The browser scans content for viruses, adware, spyware and pop-up ads, so it’s impossible to download them; when it “green-lights” the video, press the button and the content begins playing on your TV. $49.99, plus one-time charge of $5; then $3.99/month with first month free.
