Has anyone used Hulu or Netflix and streamed through the Wii?

My husband and I just moved into a new home and we are trying to decide between satellite, cable, and Internet services.  We had thought about going without cable and getting wireless Internet and streaming hulu or netflix through our  wii.  Has anyone else done this?  Advantages, disadvantages?

I don't have cable, we stream through Amazon Prime, Hulu, Netflix, and even some tv shows from youtube all on our bluray player.  Netflix works great on Wii, Hulu works okay but not great.

Frankly I don't miss cable at all.

The Wii is in our boys' room.  They use both on it (we don't have cable).  They watch their shows or movies, it's great.  We use it in the living room too.

We use netflix and hulu with our Wii and roku boxes. I like using the ruko box better for streaming. We use a wirless sensor bar with the Wii and it times out to save battery life. Ruko comes with other channels also.

No. We have cable and when we want a movie we just go rent one.

We love having Netflix on the Wii...I do miss having cable sometimes. It gets old watching the cable shows I like on the computer, I would much rather have a DVR. But for the kids, Netflix streaming is awesome...there is soooo much stuff for them on there.

We stream Netflix through our Wii.  We've never had any problems.

(We also stream it through the Xbox 360 in the living room)
