All the shows on those networks or just a select few? If it really is all, I may want to sign up for that.
Pretty sure it's all first run shows on those three networks. CBS is absent unfortunately. Comedy Central however is in Hulu+, last night's Daily Show is up this morning, South Park is current. The most glaring show missing though is the Simpsons but I haven't watched that in probably 10 years so it's not a big deal. PM me if you have a question on specific shows and I can see if they are available.
I had a pair of powered rabit ears hooked up to our junction box which is in the dead center of our house in a closet with no line of sight and still picked up all of our local HD stations which has a superior qiality to cable or satelite.
Roku and AppleTV (and Xbox and PS3) also have NHL Gamecenter and you pay $20 a month for the season, better than the one time charge of $160 or so for CenterIce. And with gameCenter you can also watch on portable devices. MLB and NB have the same type of programs.
Netflix has Disney Channel content about a month after it airs on TV which is great if you have kids. And there are ways to get regular Hulu on TV's by either jailbreaking a 1st or 2nd gen (and hopefully soon a 3rd gen) Apple TV or hook a computer up to a TV or build a media center.
The ONLY channel I ever watch and could not find anything current online that was free in some way were Discovery Channel shows. Walking Dead too was not online so I ordered that through iTunes. And also some Food Network shows.
